Some generous TISC cooks have volunteered to make chilli... but there are still a few things that need to be picked up. Please take a look at the Google doc and let us know what you can bring... Or, if you're coming last-minute, please pick up some snacks to share!
Please catch the 10am tender over to the island. If there is overflow, a second tender will also leave at 10:30am. Other than that, tenders will leave from the city side upon the hour.
If you have any additional questions, please send an email to email@example.com.
Getting to TISC
The Tender dock is located on the east side of 207 Queens Quay West. (Note: let the boat captain know that you will be buying tender tickets or a yearly pass at the Marina office). Tender leaves the marina every 60 minutes from 9:45am and the last one of the day leaves the island at 4:45 pm. Tenders leave the city side on the hour. You can also take the Centre Island Ferry from the foot of Bay Street. - See a map

Many hands make light work! This is the second Work Party that has been organized in order to finish off setting up the club for the 2020 season. Time to pitch in and get the clubhouse and property ready for the year!
Additional tender times are being arranged with the Toronto Island Marina. Once confirmed, the additional boat times will be emailed to registrants and posted on TISC social channels.
Come to the Island and help us start off on the right foot! You can spend one, two or three hours volunteering. Any contribution makes a difference! Plus, we have chili!
Additional snacks are always welcome! If you are able to contribute, please let us know via the google spreadsheet.

At TISC we're proud of our comprehensive learn to sail course. Taught by certified Sail Canada instructors the CANSail programming means lots of time on the water in a safe, fun and active learning environment, with relatively less time spent in a classroom. Sailors learn the skills and enter into fun and challenging experiences suited to their stage of development. The programming is designed to get - and keep - sailors excited about sailing for life! CANSail is designed to be a set of progressive learn to sail standards focused on providing sailors with a solid foundation of core skills. It allows sailors to learn and progress in any type of boat and consolidates key skills and solid experiences before adding complex skills.
CANSail 1 teaches sailors the fundamental sailing skills including basic sheeting, steering, and boat handling on all points of sail. Sailors can sail within defined boundaries set by an instructor.
CANSail 2 teaches sailors to adjust their bodies and boats for changes in direction and wind speed while sailing, and to perform boat-handling maneuvers in a controlled manner while in a controlled setting.
