Queen Mary Keelboat Sailing

We are delighted to have a small fleet of J80 Keelboats at Queen Mary Sailing Club and in a unique position to provide a keel boating in the suburbs of London. Specialists in keelboat personal tuition, group training, racing events and team-building.

Queen Mary is the 700-acre reservoir to the south of Heathrow Airport, Junction 1 M3 and inside the M25. 


Yachting Options

  • Personal Tuition and Group Tuition – You can learn to sail on keelboats and continue to develop your sailing skills. It might be your already an experienced sailing team and looking for a boat to do a bit of practice on. Whatever your goal we offer 1:1 personal tuition or group training session for up to four people. 
  • Youth Keel Boat Experience - There is a big step from dinghy sailing to yachting and we can provide the opportunity to try this type of sailing on an inland reservoir. Keel boating is great fun and will build your knowledge and confidence to do more big boat sailing. Sessions are with a Keelboat Instructor and can be one to one or group sessions up to four people.
  • Family hire - Perfect if you are heading overseas for a charter holiday and want to spend some time on a yacht to build experience and confidence. Preparation is key when sailing and spending a day with an instructor could make a world of difference for your enjoyment abroad. Our instructors can teach the basics of rigging, tacking and gybing, and also help you practice the skills of picking up a mooring buoy, going heaving-to in a storm, man over-board, reefing for sailing in strong winds and coming alongside a pontoon.
