Welcome to the
Toronto Island Sailing Club
Toronto’s best-kept secret!
If you want to sail without the expense of owning your own boat, then TISC is the place for you. Since 1966 TISC operated as a volunteer-run, not-for-profit, affordable sailing club on Centre Island, just minutes from the downtown core.
A Toronto Island Sailing Club sailing membership offers:
Social Sailing Nights
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings are our designated Social Sail nights. Everyone is assigned to a specific Albacore and crew for the season, typically on the day of his or her choice. Though not mandatory, we highly recommend that all novice sailors sign up for our spring CanSail 1|2 course to advance their skill level.
After an invigorating time on the water, we gather for an après sail feast. Each sailor will have brought something to BBQ, such as burgers, steak, chicken, shrimp or whatever they fancy. They also bring something to share. The “shareables” range from simple “all-I-had-time-for-was-to-a baguette” to “I-slaved-in-my-kitchen-for-three-days-to-prepare-this-dish”. It’s a great opportunity to display your culinary skills. What will you become famous for?
Throughout the season we have a number of theme nights. Our biggest event coincides with our annual Regatta. We host a full day of races followed by a cocktail reception, dinner and dance. Many racers from other clubs come for the dinner and the doling out of awards.
Each year we have a few spots available to new members so make a note of checking in with us around March to see when we’ve schedule our Orientation Nights.
