We’ll be hosting an open house at the Humber Bay Sailing Centre located on Mimico Harbour in Etobicoke on Saturday May 13 and Sunday May 14.

Our guests will have the opportunity to learn more about the keelboat sailing lessons we offer at the Centre. Guests will also be introduced to our co-op boat share program which provides sailors the opportunity to sail on a variety of keelboats ranging in size from 24′ to 33′ while they perfect their skills.

Member SupportedOur centre is a member supported, not for profit corporation providing affordable sailing at a fraction of the cost of boat ownership….which means we offer a low risk introduction to the sport of sailing before having to make a significant financial commitment to boat ownership.
