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.
Club Closure Based on The Provincial Stay at Home Orders with Additional Restrictions (April 20, 2021)
The recently announced modifications to the Stay At Home orders mean that TS&CC facilities are shut down for all purposes, with exceptions related to emergencies and safety. These measures are to be adhered to by all staff and members.
Employees are allowed on site for mandatory maintenance which if not done has the potential to be a problem and for safety/emergency conditions.
Members are allowed on site to perform a corrective action to render something safe, to inspect something that may possibly be an issue if left unattended and to correct such an issue should one be found. We understand that people may have left something in a partially complete state which could become unsafe or otherwise pose a risk of damage.
If members need to come to the Club to deal with issues like these, they must be accompanied by staff when doing so, following all social distancing and protective equipment requirements. Please email the General Manager and/or the Harbour Master as your first point of contact to arrange access.
Access to the Club is for these reasons only. The facility is otherwise CLOSED. At this moment, the Government is saying that this situation will continue until May 20.
The Board of Director's interpretation of the new Provincial Regulations has been painstaking, and has included getting the best advice from a number of sources, including directly from Provincial Government officials responsible for providing interpretations of the law based on questions which are specific to our situation. A special thanks goes to Tag, our Vice Commodore, for his diligence and thorough research.
We wish that it was possible for our Members to continue preparing for Launch, or use our facilities to go out paddling. But we believe that it is neither in the spirit of the need for a lockdown to deal with the rampant increase in rates of COVID-19 infections, nor is it within the letter of the newly issued Orders.
We are continuing to monitor any changes the Government may make to the regulations. We will notify the membership as soon as we are aware of changes that affect us.
New Tentative Launch Date - June 5
The new Launch Date is Saturday June 5, 2021. This is dependent on what new regulations, if any, the Provincial Government issues on May 20, the currently scheduled date set as the end of the Stay At Home orders.
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.
