Welcome to the Toronto Sailing & Canoe Club. We are a non-profit, volunteer-run club located right on Lake Ontario in Toronto's Humber Bay. Founded in 1880, the club offers racing, cruising, sailing instruction, recreational paddling and children's sailing camps. Moor your boat, drysail it, or sail one of our fleet boats. Dragon boat and outrigger teams are resident as well.
TS&CC has been the organizer of the Ice Breaker regatta since 1970. Sail Canada and the Ontario Sailing Association have selected the club as one of the training centres for Canada’s high performance sailing team, where young sailors train for international competition and the Olympic Games.
