SIRUB – what may sound like a sticky, sweet liquid, is the name of a sailing club: the sailing syndicate at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Segelsport-Interessengemeinschaft an der Ruhr-Universität Bochum). Founded by RUB people and headquartered at the university, SIRUB yet welcomes any interested non-university parties. Everyone who joins the SIRUB sailing school obviously wants to sail or learn how to sail – both on inland waters or on the high seas; training as a marine radio operator is naturally part of the course. In addition to sailing and boat licence courses in theory and practice, the SIRUB programme also includes sailing voyages and holiday cruises.
