Who are RCYC sailors?
Join our welcoming community of active sailors and like-minded individuals who share an interest in yachting, sport and tradition. Our story, passed through generations of RCYC Sailors, tells us that sometime in 1850s a small group of Torontonians seated themselves on flour barrels to discuss forming a local sailing Club.
What is 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.
