Bring your PFD and get ready to enjoy a fun-filled day on the Big Sound! This event is listed on the ParticipACTION 150 Play List as a Community Event and number 124/150 on the 150 Play List.
Experience the finest freshwater sailing in the world! The Big Sound is unparalleled for sailing, with its dependable winds, long fetch, and magnificent natural scenery among the 30,000 Islands.
You will love the quiet, with crisp white sails against the sky, with the waves lapping the hull of the boat, the feel of the cool spray on your face, the warmth of the sun, and the distinctive deep blue of the Big Sound. On a perfect summer day on the water, every sense is alive to the wonder of sailing in the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve.
Sail Parry Sound, celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2017, is a proud Charter Member of the UNESCO Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve, and shares the values of protecting our water with low-impact recreation.
The not for profit community-based sailing club expanded its waterfront facility and services for the public and we look forward to welcoming you to enjoy them. In celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary, we will be giving away ParticipACTION 150 water bottles, Frisbee flyers, cinch bags and temporary tattoos to our guests. In addition, we will be offering our guests to enjoy our 20th anniversary and Canada’s 150th anniversary celebration cake!
