At Mooredale Sailing Club Toronto, we love sharing our passion for sailing. Our enthusiasm is quickly infectious for most new members. We love seeing our students enjoying the thrill of sailing well and fast! For these reasons, we put together a sound teaching program unique to our club. This program includes beginner sailing lessons in Toronto and advanced sailing lessons in Toronto, certified by the Canadian Yachting Association.

We welcome our new members by offering them more than 40 hours of sailing lessons conform to the CYA (Canadian Yacht Association) standards and taught by our professional CYA certified instructors - including Leen-Jan, pictured below with our Cansail A class! Our "Learn to Sail" program will cover safety, seamanship and boat handling in winds to 9 knots velocity and it will give you the sufficient theoretical knowledge and practical experience to obtain the CYA CANSail I & II Certificate.
While you are learning the basics of sailing in a friendly atmosphere, you will get familiar with the club and its members. You will also participate to different introductory programs, which include, an introduction to boat maintenance and repair involving fiberglass work, an introduction to racing which will be run by one of our top racers, and of course a full access to our clubhouse and its social activities.
