Toronto Island Sailing Club (TISC) is Toronto's best-kept secret, and a fantastic way to spend your summer! Whether you've never set foot in a boat before, or you're an experienced Skipper, there is something for you at TISC! The club offers two types of membership, a Sailing Membership for people interested in participating in all activities—both on water and on land—and a Social Membership for those just looking to participate in activities on land. The benefits for both types of membership are outlined below.
Please note that due to the impact of COVID-19, we have limited control over when the 2021 season will start or how long it will run, and hence have been planning around various scenarios. TISC has amended its fee structure to remain flexible and be more responsive to the length of the season so that membership fees are at reasonable prices all the way until August. For more information, review the 2021 Fee Structure.
TYPES OF MEMBERSHIP
Please note that due to the impact of COVID-19, we also have limited control over what the 2021 season will look like. The following outlines what TISC offers in a typical season. The 2021 season may look a bit different. We will keep our members updated and provide more information as it is made available.
