    COVID-19 Response 

    After a successful season in 2020, National Yacht Club’s Sailing & Racing School is planning to again operate in 2021 in accordance with provincial and municipal regulations. Following similar adjustments made during the 2020 season we will be operating at reduced capacity to facilitate social distancing and will be implementing cohorting and sanitation protocols aimed at reducing the spread of COVID-19.

    Our focus remains ensuring safe, engaging, and fun programming for introductory, intermediate, and advanced sailors aged 7 and up. Based on the size and logistical requirements of our program, we have determined that operating at reduced capacity on a minimum of a two-week basis 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 will remain distanced on the water. All boats and equipment will be sanitized before use and will be assigned to one sailor for the duration of their time at National. Each group will operate independently and will have their own designated 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.

  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of National Yacht Club Sailing Camp and School

    our take

    The NYC was founded in 1894, and was first know, charmingly, the National Yacht and Skiff Club. It’s grown and changed over the years, but throughout has remained a cornerstone of sailing in the city. The location, to be sure, is one of the benefits—accessible by public transportation, it’s also a place of escape, a chance to get away from the bustle of the city and mess about in boats. The club remains an expression of the community it serves, and is also host to a number of annual regattas. When campers arrive, they enter that world—the culture of sailing, the community it represents—and are granted an opportunity to escape within it while also learning essential skills from some of the best. Certified instructors make it fun, active, and exciting, all within the shadow of the Toronto skyline.

    Director's Message

    Gabrielle Blais-Jones, NYC Vice Commodore - Education
    Member of the Board of Directors

    Hello Parents and Guardians,

    Thank you for looking into the National Yacht Club Sailing and Racing School for your child this summer!

    As a graduate of the program, I can tell you that this camp will be a wonderful adventure for your child. They will of course be having fun outside and learning new skills, but this camp will also help with self-confidence and problem solving as no two days on the water are exactly the same.

    We have successfully run our sailing school for over 60 years, and have taken that time to grow and innovate. We have kept up to date with the latest teaching methods (all of our instructors are CANSail certified) and used our expertise to tailor them to best suit our campers.

    This camp is great for children aged 7-18, and is great for all levels - from people who have never set foot on a boat (CANSail 1) to those who have a lot of racing experience (CANSail 5/6). These days in particular, this is a great opportunity for kids to socialize outdoors.

    After running a safe and successful program in 2020, we look forward to another great summer! 

    Hope to see you on the water,

    Gabrielle Blais-Jones,

    Vice Commodore - Education
