Queen Mary Sailing Club

Welcome to Queen Mary Sailing Club 

Sailsports is the name of the Sailing school at Queen Mary Sailing Club. The club is based at the huge Queen Mary Reservoir just West of London and we have been inspiring water sports for over 40 years! Thank you for visiting our website we hope the content and photos help tell the story about what we do, give us a call for more details on any activity you would like to do.

  • Just West of London the Sailing Club enjoys 700 acres of water and is the largest inland reservoir in the south east of England. Whether you are a beginner or a top racer, whatever your age you will find a warm welcome at the club. 
  • For over 40 years Queen Mary has been a special patch of water for sailing and windsurfing members and guests, membership at Queen Mary is ideal for racing or just having fun. We are here to help you starting with our RYA Training School to enjoy regular sailing all year round. 
  • QM is the largest reservoir in the South East 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 we are ideally located for anyone within the Home Counties looking for somewhere to sail or windsurf. 
  • The club is professionally staffed with safety at all times that the water is open, and our staff will be delighted to show you around the club and explain membership options to you. You will not be expected to do duties in the galley or on the safety boats as this is all done professionally, but there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in club life. 
  • The club is also host to many sailing events for different classes of boat and hold its own Youth and Members regatta throughout the year. The most famous race the club is recognised for is the 'The Bloody Mary' which has been organised every year for over 40 years and is the UKs largest inland Pursuit sailing race with often over 400 competitiors taking part. There is a video below for the 2013 race which was held in January.
  • 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, and attend club social events. There is a 20% club member discount on most of our training courses and on equipment hire.
