Membership Categories

Queensland Cruising Yacht Club offers excellent facilities, an active sailing calendar and, most importantly of all, a friendly atmosphere where lifelong members and first-time visitors are made to feel equally welcome.


The club has a strong and growing membership base. As well as a love of sailing, family and friendship are two common bonds that tie us together.
Whether a keen Junior only just starting out or a sailor with a lifetime’s experience, both are equally welcome, as are any ages in between!


In fact, you don’t need to be a sailor at all to join the Club. QCYC has a range of memberships to cater for most requirements, for boat owners and skippers right through to Social Memberships for those less interested in spending time out on the water but wishing to enjoy the Clubhouse facilities and the fantastic atmosphere. There are also excellent rates available to Juniors and our Family Membership, offering membership to two adults and two children up to the age of 18, represents equally good value.
