Social Events

Sailors know how to have a good time, both on and off the water! Each season we host a number of themed events for our members. Volunteers, (you!) help out with the planning and/or execution of these events. But we're not limited to the official calendar. Each year a number of members create impromptu BBQs, tastings, picnics and additional celebrations for the wider membership to enjoy. Unfortunately this year we are limited by COVID-19 regulations, but we will be sure to plan a club get together as soon as the public health stipulations allow.


None of these events happen without YOU! Let us know if you're interested in helping out with BBQing, race committee, decorating, music, gardening, anything! If you have an idea for an event, we want to hear about it! View scheduled events.

Open House, New Member Orientation: 

Catch the 4:00PM tender to the island and we'll give you a guided tour of the club, the grounds, the boats, and walk you through the ins-and-outs of your first season. We'll answer questions about our 3 social sailing nights, racing, how to rig an Albacore, CANSail lessons in June & July, and all other things TISC related. We'll wrap things up around 5:30PM.

Season Launch Party and Silent Auction: 

New and returning members get to mix and mingle for the first time this season. This is the perfect opportunity to meet people whom you’ll see around the club all season. TISC's silent auction raises money to offset the costs of running the club - so bring lots of money! This year we have Skippers offering one-on-one private lessons, restaurant gift certificates, books on sailing, a Salus PFD, tours & tasting at Steam Whistle Brewery and a fantastic sailing trip!

Canada Day - July 1

This is a great opportunity for non-racers to get out on the water with more experienced sailors they might not have had a chance to, until now.

Toronto Island Sailing Club Regatta: 

This is our biggest event of the year. During the day TISC will host a day of races for some of the best Albacore racers in the world. TISC volunteers (you) are asked to help on the Race Committee or help with the dinner preparations. Once the races are finished (around 4ish), sailors and friends meet at the club for the awards ceremony, BBQ dinner and live music.

Theme nights on social sail nights

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are our social sail nights. Occasionally a themed dinner will be announced. You will be asked to bring an appetizer or dessert that goes with the theme. After an evening of sailing we'll get the BBQ going and enjoy the themed pot luck dinner, sometimes with themed drinks as well!

Commodore’s Ball / End of Season Party

Each year we get together to celebrate the end of the season with fine food, racing awards, a slideshow of the season highlights, the 2021 Executive is introduced, and fond stories of a summer well-spent and the anticipation of next season. Dress code, semi-formal.

Note: dates and times may change. Check our event calendar for the most up to date listings.
