Where Can You Find Boat Cruising, Yacht Sailing and Windsurfing in Manly?

Owning a boat is wonderful but without the right activities to occupy their time, even the most avid boaters can become a little bit bored. Part of the joy of owning a boat is being able to cruise, sail, or cavort with like-minded people in elegant settings. Whether you’re into boat cruising, yacht sailing, windsurfing or any other water sport, it’s always more fun when you share the experience with others who embrace and understand the lifestyle. Where can you find a society of boat cruising, yacht sailing or windsurfing enthusiasts in Manly, though?

Try the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron. With over a hundred years of history since we began as the Brisbane Sailing Club in 1855, we’ve since moved to Manly and have quickly become the premiere yacht club for boat owners and water sportsmen and women seeking quality company, luxury amenities, and tight security for their vessels. Whether you go in for windsurfing, yacht sailing or boat cruising in Manly, we have the facilities and training to accommodate your every need.
