Queen Mary Sailing Club
If you’re looking for a friendly club with great racing, great social sailing and a wide range of facilities, you’ve found it!
For over 40 years Queen Mary has been London’s special patch of water for sailing and windsurfing. Membership at Queen Mary is ideal for racing or just having fun. Our RYA Sailing School is here to help you start sailing or develop your skills and enjoy regular sailing all year round.
QMSC is the largest reservoir in the South East, near London, with the surface 45ft above the surrounding countryside giving good unobstructed wind over the 700 acres.
Situated just to the west of London on the Surrey Middlesex border the club is ideally located for anyone within the Home Counties looking for somewhere to sail or windsurf.
The club is professionally staffed with safety cover at all times when the water is open, and our staff will be delighted to show you around the club and explain membership or sailing course options to you and how to get involved in club life.
As a member you can sail whenever the club is open, store your boat or board in the boat park, use the club house facilities at any time, and attend club social events.
HOW TO JOIN QUEEN MARY
Membership of the Club is open to all and members are not required to do any duties as the Club is run by professional staff... sounds good to me!
There are plenty of opportunities to help with the running of the Club through volunteering to help on a regular basis with Race Management, Youth Group, Sailability and the Club's Council. There are also one-off opportunities to help with big events such as the Bloody Mary which takes place at the beginning of January each year.
