Welcome To The

Etobicoke Yacht Club Junior Sail Program !

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.

2022 is a wrap !

Many thanks to all the participants, staff, parents and club volunteers who made the 2022 season a complete and unmitigated success. After a few years of incomplete programs, it was gratifying to see the high level of participation from all the CANSail level age groups.

The 2022 season has now drawn to a close and which of course means we are beginning the task of preparing for 2023 ! Check back here frequently for updates as we anticipate opening registrations for next year around January 1st 2023.
