One of the premier Private Clubs in Toronto

Where Friends become Family

Growing Friendships since 1852

Our story, passed through generations of RCYC Sailors, tells us that sometime in 1850s a small group of Torontonians seated themselves on flour barrels to discuss forming a local sailing Club. Today, that same spirit that brought them together persists in our community united by its passion for the sport. Whether you are an experienced sailor or looking to learn the ropes, our Club offers camaraderie on and off the water.


One Membership, Two Clubhouses

Toronto Island & Downtown Toronto

Escape the hectic pace of the city by taking a short private ferry ride from the
downtown core to the relaxing, panoramic shores of our historic Toronto Island
Clubhouse. Here, you can enjoy sailing, dining, tennis, outdoor swimming, children’s
programs, lawn bowling and other activities.

Our City Clubhouse caters to your active lifestyle year-round. It is a place where
you can break a sweat in our fitness centre, play squash or badminton, dine and
socialize with friends.
