Would you like to join the friendliest, oldest and one of the most prestigious sailing clubs in Queensland?

We would be happy to welcome you aboard!  Whether you are a keen sailor, a power or cruising yachtsperson or love making new friends and want to seriously liven up your social life, then the Squadron is the place to be. 

We ensure that our members are taken care of whether they are on or off the water. We celebrate not only the passion of yachting (sailing and power boating) as a sport but we also preserve important and enduring traditions.

Our members – some third and fourth generation families – enjoy our comprehensive range of facilities. For boaties we have world-class marina and ship yard services and facilities, excellent boat storage and discount on fuel purchases. 

The Squadron offers a comprehensive year-round competitive sailing, power and sail cruising calendar, which will satisfy all levels of intended participation. 

Our Sailing Academy is on standby to assist with an array of courses for those who are interested in a sailing experience, learning to sail, or enroll the kids in our school holiday Sail & Play program; they’ll have a fabulous time.

For the non-boating minded, we offer a range of social options, a café,  bar and a full-service, waterfront restaurant as dining alternatives.
Want to belong? We would love to welcome you. Call us today. 

Two RQYS current financial members are required to propose and second your nomination for membership. If you do not know anyone to do this we will organise a meeting with a member of the Membership Committee and a Provisional membership is offered for the first 12 months at the Squadron. It is an informal meeting which takes about 15 minutes.
