THE PERFECT WEEKEND VACATION FOR YOUR CATAMARAN

We're a member driven, self-help sailing club, dedicated to the enjoyment of sailing as a recreation, and advancement of the sport as a competitive activity. We're a club for real sailors: we only sail boats where if you make a mistake, you end up swimming.

Excellent accommodation is available nearby, there's a Tim Hortons a 10 minute walk away, and superb vantage points of the Lake and downtown Toronto are just a few minutes walk. And if you're from outside Toronto and really want to sell a non nautical spouse on the idea, we are a 20 minute drive from downtown Toronto shopping.
