Brought together, by the love of water
Choosing the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron is choosing to belong to a diverse community brought together by the love of the water and boating, in all its forms. If you are drawn to the water, take pleasure in the wind or simply love messing around in boats, you belong 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!
For Young & Old
RQYS has a strong and growing membership base who come from all walks of life. New members are instantly made to feel a part of the Club and are encouraged to play an active part in club life. No matter if you’ve never stepped foot on the deck of a boat or you’re an accomplished mariner, the Squadron is here to instruct, guide, support, host and facilitate all on water activities.
Discover The bay
The Squadron offers a comprehensive year-round competitive sailing, power and sail cruising calendar, which will satisfy all levels of intended participation.
Socialise in Serenity
For the non-boating minded, we offer a range of social options, a bar, a bistro featuring superb Australian seafood and cuisine and a coffee shop, as dining alternatives.
