Friday, August 25th, 2023

The Etobicoke Yacht Club (EYC) established a not-for-profit Junior Sail Program (JSP) in 2000 exclusively to promote the sport of sailing for the youth in our community. The Program operates from a dedicated sail training facility within the Etobicoke Yacht Club grounds and on the water in the beautiful and sheltered Humber Bay.

The Program is open to youth between the ages of 7 to 17, from absolute beginner to the more experienced sailors who want to continue developing their skills.

All our coaches or instructors are nationally certified and insured by Sail Canada and Ontario Sailing to deliver the nationally accredited CANSail curriculum.  Our highly motivated staff is dedicated to share the love of sailing and to get out on the water with the program participants whenever the program curriculum requires it. They also develop their own sailor skills as many of the coach's participant in club racing and are highly successful  sailors in their own right. 

Stand by for 2024 Registrations in January ! 

Our web page is now in planning registrations for Summer 2024. We will continue to offer the full range of CANSail sailing courses for ages 7 to 17, and for the more adventurous junior sailors, a choice of two race teams, Opti and Laser. (prerequisites and conditions apply).

Space gets more limited as time goes on, so be sure to register early. If you find your preferred program full, please use the provided wait list to sign up. As additional spaces may become available and we will contact those on the wait list first.
