Serve2Sail is back!

The Serve2Sail program has been designed to attract new Members, with a sailing background, that want to be immediately engaged as a Member in the Club. Serve2Sailors contribute 40 volunteer hours per season for 4 years (160 hours total) in exchange for 90% of the Entrance Fee. These Members are required to pay the applicable annual fee for their age category. Members are given voting privileges and the opportunity to have a boat (wet berth) once the 4 years are completed.​

The application process is to fill out the Serve2Sail application (click here), provide 2 voting Members letters of support, a sailing resume/letter of interest outlining your sailing experience and areas of interest at the Club and 10% of the required Entrance Fee.​​

Where friends become family...

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 launch ride from the downtown core to the relaxing, panoramic shores of our Toronto Island facility, an oasis of calm amid the city chaos. Here, Members of all ages can enjoy sailing, tennis, lawn bowling, children’s programs, and other outdoor activities. 
In addition to our Island Clubhouse, our year-round City Clubhouse is conveniently located at 141 St. George Street, steps from fashionable Yorkville and minutes away from the financial and business districts. In the city, Members can enjoy activities ranging from fine dining, to fitness and sports programs to business and social gatherings.
Family and single memberships are available. Entrance and annual fees are structured according to age, with flexible payment plans are available.
To arrange for a private tour and to obtain further information about general membership, please contact Andrew Birch at 416.934.4408 or by email at
