Queen Mary Laser Fleet

Welcome to the home of the Queen Mary Laser Fleet. The fleet is made up of a mixture of all of the Laser rigs: Standard, Radial and 4.7. We have links with the QM Youth Group to help young sailors transition to the Laser.

Queen Mary Reservoir is over 700 acres in size and raised above the ground with no surrounding trees, which means we are able to set courses true to the wind that aren’t compromised by wind shadow, current or islands.

The main website for Queen Mary Sailing Club (QMSC) is www.queenmary.org.uk

Laser Racing

Club racing takes place on Sunday mornings throughout the year when the Laser Fleet gets its own class start. There are two back-to-back races on Sundays. Over the year the races are split into several seasonal series.

There is also a Wednesday evening racing series from April-September which consists of one mixed handicap race each Wednesday. There is the option of staying for a cooked meal afterwards with fellow racers, which is the time to find out where you went wrong!

There are also various one-off events throughout the year such as the famous Bloody Mary.

Other sailing and training

The Laser Fleet organises its own specific training with Pro Coaching days during the year and regular Practice Sessions on the first Saturday of each month.

QMSC runs a Saturday Club for members to experience casual sailing in company. As an RYA training centre there are also various courses ranging from learning to sail and introduction to racing, to RYA dinghy instructor.
