Become a Member at RCYC — One of the premier Private Clubs in Toronto

With its two Clubhouses, one in the heart of the city and the other on Toronto Island, RCYC is one of the premier private clubs in Toronto. 

About The Royal Canadian Yacht Club:

The Royal Canadian Yacht Club was founded in Toronto in 1852 to serve both as a recreational yachting club and, in the British tradition, as an unofficial auxiliary of the Royal Navy in the defence of the waters of Lake Ontario.  

During the late spring and summer, Members of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club take refuge from the hectic pace of the city by taking a short private ferry ride from the downtown core to the relaxing, panoramic shores of our Toronto Island Clubhouse. Here, Members of all ages can enjoy sailing as well as tennis, lawn bowling, outdoor swimming, children’s programs, and other activities. 
In addition to our Island Clubhouse, our year-round City Clubhouse is conveniently located at 141 St. George Street, steps from St. George Station (TTC), in the fashionable Yorkville neighbourhood and minutes away from the financial district. In the city, Members can dine, socialize and enjoy our fitness and sports programming. 

RCYC Members have access to: 

  • Year-Round City Clubhouse in the heart of downtown Toronto
  • Island Clubhouse with spectacular skyline views, tennis courts and swimming pool
  • Sailing Opportunities using our Club Fleet for all Members
  • Local and international regattas, midweek racing, Jr. Sailing Club, youth high-performance racing, adult Learn to Sail programs, Sailing seminars and speaker series
  • Private Ferry access to our Island Clubhouse from our 150 Cherry Street location
