Most weekends, UQ Sailing runs fun social sailing days where you and your friends can casually learn to sail as you explore what Moreton bay has to offer!

Social sailing gives members a non-competitive environment with supervised access to our entire fleet. Social sailing is geared towards all members regardless of skill level. It is a great introduction to the sport. UQ Sailing has several experienced members organising and running it to ensure a safe day out on the water.

  • Transport to and from the UQ Pool if you need it (We recommend you drive yourself if you can as part of our COVID-SAFE Plan)
  • Boats and experienced skippers
  • Lunch
  • All safety gear
  • Insurance

We also usually go out for drinks and/ or dinner following social sailing, so it’s advisable you’re prepared for that and bring a change of clothes if you’re interested!

Those attending should bring the following items:

  • A hat
  • A towel
  • Shoes or Thongs (You don’t mind getting wet)
  • Water bottle
  • Sunscreen
  • Swim gear
  • Dry clothes to change into after the day

If you want a lift to Humpybong Yacht Club meet us at the UQ pool at 8am. If you are driving yourself meet us at Humpybong Yacht Club at 8:45am.

A confirmation email with further details will be sent out the afternoon/evening before the sail day. Please be patient when waiting for confirmation as spaces can sometimes be limited and weather conditions have to be taken into consideration.

No experience is necessary we have experienced skippers who attend and are more than happy to show you the ropes.

Weather can rapidly change on the day, and social sailing may need to be cut short if we cannot safely go sailing.


We are taking all precautions to ensure our event is COVID Safe. We are in constant communication with UQ Sport and taking all recommendations from QLD Health. If you have travelled from interstate, experienced covid symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has, please contact the exec and do not attend the event. Please read the UQ Sport Covid Statement available here:

As part of our COVID-Safe plan we ask that you:

  • Bring your own equipment, such as a towel, water bottle, and sunscreen
  • If you can make your own way to the sailing club, please do. If you can’t, no stress! We will organize a car pool.
  • If you have flu symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has or is suspected to have COVID-19 please notify executives and do not attend the event.
  • If you become sick after the event, you must notify executives as soon as possible.
  • In general, practice good hygiene and social distancing at all times.
