Since 1880 - a club for people who love getting out on the water

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.

TS&CC is an inexpensive, fun sailing and paddling club. Look under Join Us for a membership option that suits you. To read more about the club and how it functions, click here.

Access to the Club (Revised April 8, 2021)

We have been able to get more clarity about what the regulations released on April 7 mean. We believe that based on these regulations it  is possible for Members to be at the Club for certain purposes, with significant restrictions. Here is an overview of what is permitted:

The TS&CC is partially open during the stay at home orders in council.  As a recreational amenity available for exercise, you may sail or paddle a boat. This includes launching the craft at the ramps, retrieving the necessary equipment to use them and bringing them in.  Work on boats in dry dock may proceed if the member determines it absolutely necessary during the stay at home orders, though not recommended.  In addition to the existing rules limiting us to 5 persons gathered socially distanced, we are limiting the total use of our docks for sailing and paddling at any time to 12 members.  A person is counted from the time they enter Club premises until the time they leave Club premises.

If we find that demand for being at the Club gets to the point that we are frequently at our capacity of 12 members, we will put in place a sign-up system so that people can book time to come.  

Work on any craft in dry dock may only proceed on your assigned colour days.

Please read the April 8, 2021 COVID-19 Protocols

Colour Days System for Spring 2021

We are instituting the same Colour Days system for access to the Club by boatowners that we used last year.

The first document shows which days are coded for which colour:

TSCC 2021 Spring Colour Days 

The second shows the colour coding for each boat:

Keelboat Colour Coding - Spring 2021

Please check which days you are able to come to the Club before arrival!

This system applies to Keelboats only. For the time being, we are not going to put in place the system for Paddlers that we used last year.

However, anyone coming to the Club must ensure that they are following our COVID-19 protocols -- especially including safe distancing, use of masks, cleaning of surfaces touched, and access to the Clubhouse restricted to use of the washrooms one person at a time.

2021 Sailing Courses

Registration is open for Adult and Youth Sailing Courses as well as Private Lessons. Please see COVID-19 Update Notices at the top of each page for more details.
