Welcome to the home of SQSA

The South Queensland Sabot Association (SQSA) represents the Sabot sailing dinghy class from Southport to Yeppoon.  Members include sailors, parents and clubs who are enthusiastic participants in Sabot sailing. For 50 years young Australian sailors have been introduced to the sport and social benefits of sailing at club, regional, state and national levels in Sabot sailing dinghies.  The SQSA’s goal is to offer a fun and family-friendly environment that builds confident young sailors on a race course, and fosters a lifelong interest in the sport of sailing. Want to learn more?  Look at some great photos and You-Tube links in our gallery, read about getting started in Sabots here, or contact us.


  • Notice of  AGM 2017: The Annual General Meeting will be held Saturday 3rd June, 5pm at RQYS, 578 Royal Esplanade, Manly QLD. This is an important event on the SQSA calendar and forms a key part of SQSA’s communications platform with members. The AGM is an opportunity for members to meet the past committee, ask questions and vote on items of business and to elect a new committee to reflect their interests. All welcome.
  • Welcome new and past members to the 2017/18 sailing season. Membership and Season Entry are now available online and have been emailed out to past members. If you have any questions about joining please contact us…
  • In December this year SQSA will be hosting Sabot Nationals & Sabot Week. This is a great honour and one we hope will be an amazing showcase of the finest young sailors in our country. For this event to be a success we are now looking for committed members to come forward and volunteer for a role making the week run smoothly. There are many, many jobs from catering to car parking, sign on to wash bays, fundraising and sponsorships, and of course on the water and safety. If you would like to be a part please consider adding your name to the list and attending the committee meetings. Many hands make light work… Thanks
