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.

TS&CC Is Now Open -- With Significantly Increased Activities Possible Based on Stage 2 Regulations - June 30, 2021

The recent changes made by the Provincial Government, moving Ontario into Stage 2 of the re-opening, combined with the recently released federal guidelines for fully vaccinated people, have a significant (and good!) impact on what it is possible for us to do at the Club.

The wonderful news is that there will be a sailing and paddling season at the Toronto Sailing & Canoe Club!

As usual, there are complexities to how the rules apply to us, and the Board wants to make sure that all Members, the children who attend our Camps, and adults attend our Learn To Sail classes are able to use the our facilities safely.

Here are some highlights of the new Protocols, details of which can be found in our Protocols Document:

  • Multiple people can now be in a boat depending on the vaccination status of the individuals, meaning that sailing and paddling activities that were previously restricted are now permitted, with certain conditions
  • Thursday race nights will be possible as "training exercise". An announcement will follow as to the start date for this activity.
  • Increase to two persons per washroom
  • Increase to one person per row in Vanguard locker area
  • Indoor work parties able to begin again

The Document also outlines protocols related to:

  • Sport distancing and masking
  • Priority usage of certain areas while day camp sailing school is in operation 
  • Masks and distancing for vaccinated and unvaccinated persons
  • Sign in requirements when you arrive on site.

The full details can be found in our current covid safety document. Please read this carefully to make sure that you are aware of how these changes affect you:
