Family at RQYS

Family & Friends

As a member of RQYS you join a community that welcomes your friends, family, children and colleagues. The excellent facilities are provided to our extended community, encouraging people to enjoy spectacular Moreton Bay and beyond.

Develop Life-long Friendships

Yes, the sailing and cruising is spectacular, and the location is stunning, but that’s only part of it. Our members and our people make the Squadron a special place. Arguably the most compelling reason of all to join is because it presents the opportunity to belong to one of the world’s great yacht clubs and the chance to make many new friends and to enjoy their company in an open and welcoming environment.

Whether your a full-time sailor, a powerboat enthusiast or just want to socialise in Manly’s best kept secret, we have a membership tailored for you!
