Set Sail This Summer!

Open to Non-Members. Age 7+
Our fun and affordable Sail Canada accredited summer camp offers introductory sailing and advanced racing programs for ages seven and up. Our CANSail certified instructors introduce kids to dinghy sailing fundamentals through games, interactive lessons and of course getting out on the water!

Our learn to sail curriculum covers CANSail levels 1 through 6. For advanced level sailors we have competitive Opti and 420 race programs that travel to regattas around the province.

Participants sail on our fleet of Club owned Optimist, SailCube, RS Quest and C420 dinghies. On-water sessions are taught in small groups to ensure quality instruction and safety. Off the water activities include exploring the Toronto Island beaches and neighbouring parks, exciting sailing games, instructional sailing theory and much more! With our convenient downtown Toronto location National Yacht Club is easily accessible by both car and public transportation.
To provide safe, affordable, and fun sailing instruction that meets Sail Canada standards and emphasizes performance in sailing. Young sailors will learn the fundamentals for a lifelong participation in the sport.

Since the National Yacht Club Sailing & Racing School’s inception in 1955 it’s aim has been to produce first-rate sailors through quality instruction and enjoyment of the sport. NYC S&RS alumni have gone on to become CANSail instructors, compete as members of the Ontario Sailing Team, Canadian Sailing Team and at the Olympics.

COVID-19 Policy and the 2022 Experience at NYC's Sailing & Racing School
After a successful season in 2021, National Yacht Club’s Sailing & Racing School is planning to again operate in 2022 in accordance with provincial and municipal regulations. Following similar adjustments made the past two years we will be implementing protocols aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19 and our focus remains ensuring safe, engaging, and fun programming for introductory, intermediate, and advanced sailors aged 7 and up.

In 2022 we require that participants 12 years or older must be fully vaccinated with an approved COVID-19 vaccine to participate. Proof of full vaccination must be submitted with registration form. Currently, Students aged 11 and under are not required to have proof of vaccination to participate, however in anticipation of a requirement that may come forward, parents are advised to indicate the registrant will be fully vaccinated and/or attach proof of current vaccination status with registration form.

In addition to our vaccination policy, we will again operate all programs on a minimum of a two-week basis which will allow our instructors and athletes to engage with the material and develop an appreciation for sailing while limiting the possibility of COVID-19 transmission. Sailors and coaches will be required to wear the appropriate PPE onshore and all boats and equipment will be sanitized before and after use. Each group will operate in an independent pod and will have their own designated onshore zone which will limit the opportunity for cross-group contact. 

While we are all working very hard to ensure a safe return to camp, we will continue to provide high-quality sailing instruction adhering to Sail Canada standards.
