Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron was ‘born’ in 1885 when a group of gentlemen interested in water sports formed the Brisbane Sailing Club. Sailing quickly became the prominent sport of the new entity and within a few years competition with the sailors from Sydney had commenced with the inaugural inter-colonial sailing race in 22 Footers.
The Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron is proud of its enviable record of having been represented in every Australian Olympic team – either as competitor, coach or team manager – since the Melbourne Games of 1956.
The Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron is Queensland’s oldest and one of the most prestigious recreational boating clubs. It is also unique in the variety of recreational activities catered for within the one club.
