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.
