Queen’s Sailing

We are fundraising!

Buy a Queen's Sailing Burgee and help us buy new boats! Email qsailing@queensu.ca and we'll send you one!

We are a varsity club at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario.

We sail double-handed in Club 420 sailboats, and also individually in Lasers. We have an active keelboat team that competes internationally, a bunch of skiff-sailing racers, and a rockin' Recreational Sailing Club.

Our home court is the Kingston Yacht Club. We sail in windy Kingston Harbour. KYC is so close to Queen’s main campus you can walk to practice.

We have a full-time coach, and we have awesome support from our Yacht Club and Alumni. Queen's is leading the way as a model for collegiate sailing in Canada.
