Queen Mary Sailing Club


Regular and one-off sessions are not only an excellent way of building a young person’s confidence & team building skills, but also in getting more active & involved in a fantastic sport, obtaining internationally recognised RYA qualifications all recorded through personal logbooks & certificates. 


  • Sailing (small boat dinghies & larger keelboats)
  • Windsurfing (min age 10yrs)
  • Kayaking
  • Stand Up Paddleboarding
  • Raft Building
  • Team Games / Challenges


Regular sessions in sailing or windsurfing (a session being 2-2.5hrs) can be set up at any time of year, with the majority of groups opting for sessions from Easter through till October half term. Most ‘terms’ are booked in blocks of 6 sessions over 6 weeks, however each term can be tailored to the availability of the group, from 2 sessions to infinite.

Before students commit to a term, we can run a taster session first, with those keen to continue then signing up to the regular sessions. We can work towards the stages within the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme or RYA Youth Windsurf Scheme, with certification obtained upon reaching the required ability.



Anywhere from 6 participants up to 60 participants! Combinations of sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, raft-building and team games can be bolted together to make up an activity day, or alternatively pick your favourite activity and come for half a day! Any level of catering is available.

A full day programme example:

  • 0930 – Arrive, Introductions, Safety & Change
  • 1015 – Activity 1
  • 1200 – Lunch
  • 1300 – Activity 2
  • 1430 – Activity 3
  • 1600 – Change & Prize-giving
  • 1630 - Depart



Due to the flexibility in each programme, it is best to discuss your requirements with a member of the
Office Team to get an accurate idea of price. As a guide:

Taster Session 2 Hours, one activity = £15 per person (November to May) / £25 per person (June to October)

Activity Days = £45 per person (Full Day) choice of 3 activities*

*subject to weather conditions

Based upon 6 students. 



Participants are not required to be able to swim, but need to be confident in and around water. Queen Mary provide EU approved 50N Buoyancy Aids for all participants afloat, as well as wetsuits. Each participant would need to bring with them:

  • Swimwear
  • Towel
  • Shoes (old trainers or wetsuit shoes)
  • Completed QM Health & Water Confidence Declaration form (issued at time of booking)

A group representative (whether a teacher, leader or a parent) will need to take the group coordinator role and liaise with QM in the set up of the programme. Once it is all set up they need not be onsite during the sessions (however they are more than welcome to get involved).

Activities can be great out door learning experiences, we hope to see you on the water.
