Come Aboard. This is your place.

This is your club by the Lake, nestled against the shore of Toronto harbour and just minutes from the rush of downtown Toronto.

Interested in racing? The friendly, established National Yacht Club has been known for its avid racers since 1894.

Don't own a boat? National Yacht Club is the perfect club for more casual sailors and newcomers. Take advantage of the Cruising and Racing Crew Banks or Shark Club, 420 Club and Match Racing, our popular community sailing programs.

Crew Bank, Shark, 420, Match Racing Clubs, social member, seasoned sailor - at the end of a great day on the water, everyone is welcome to come together and enjoy the view. On the deck, on the patio, at the bbq, there is always something happening at NYC and certainly no shortage of storytellers who are happy to share their tales.

Sail, or power; delight in social events and meals in our panoramic dining room; join races and lake activities set against the Toronto skyline; view fireworks, air shows and romantic sunsets from our patio.
