Located on the Humber Bay, on the north shore of Lake Ontario, the Toronto Sailing and Canoe Club has been around since 1880, offering insruction in racing, cruising and sailing. There are also regular regattas, a sailing school and summer camp. Special events include the Victoria Day weekend icebreaker, an annual mid-summer cruise to the Scarborough Bluffs and a long-distance race in the crisp October air. Races take place each Tuesday and Thursday evening from May to October, along with the frostbite series from November through April, all of which provide a great social atmosphere for beginners and experts alike. Cruising events include a picnic to Toronto Island, a cruise to a waterfront dinner location and an annual autumn voyage around the islands.
For the Love of Yachting
The classes at the Toronto Sailing and Canoe Club are geared to developing a love for boating that can last a lifetime – no matter how old the students are. Kids participating in the Optimist program learn all the essentials within their own dinghy fitted with a daggerboard, single lug-sail and additional buoyancy tanks. A five-level program from the Canadian Yachting Association allows students to gain progressive experience that can be applied in regular racing and recreation.
