Women on Water 2022

Are you a woman looking to get into sailing or already taking part?

Fancy getting on the water in a friendly safe environment with likeminded women and a female instructor?

This is for you!

QMSC is looking to take women's sailing forward in 2022 and drive an increase in women's membership. With less than 20% of current members at QMSC being women, this is an important goal the RYA share with us. While programmes for women exist higher up the ability level such as the Magenta Project. QMSC is looking to increase the number of women learning how to sail and sticking with the sport.
