Sailing at Ashbridge’s Bay Yacht Club

“At Home on the Water in Toronto”

Ashbridge’s Bay Yacht Club (ABYC), one of Toronto’s premier sailing clubs for both novice and experienced sailors, is built on activity, on the water and ashore. Our members are involved in racing, cruising, and day-sailing during the boating season and participate in a diverse range of social events throughout the year. We’re a family-friendly club with activities and facilities for all ages.

ABYC Vision and Values

The very best of sailing and boating in Toronto, where anyone can escape and share their passion for adventures on the water.

ABYC is a community built on:
• Friendly, open and welcoming, inclusive and diverse ​members
• Civility and sportsmanship, respect for people and property ​
• Individual contribution and teamwork ​ 
• Pride in our community, club, staff, waters, lands and facilities

Welcome to the club!

Known for its spacious clubhouse with bar and restaurant in the heart of Toronto’s Eastern Beaches community, ABYC is also recognized throughout the Lake Ontario region and beyond for running major championship racing regattas, for nurturing sailors young and old through its highly respected junior sailing school and keelboat programs, Adult keelboat and dinghy programs, Co-op Keelboat and Dinghy Programs, water sports opportunities through our memberships for dinghies, paddleboards and kayaks, and for offering great camaraderie through cruising, parties and other events.


The Learn to Sail Open House

Come for a visit!

Each spring in late April or early May, we hold an open house for those interested in joining us at ABYC. At the open house, you can learn about our sailing schools for both juniors and adults and our membership options. We welcome sailors without boats who would like either to crew on a Senior Member’s boat or to participate in our keelboat and dinghy co-op programs. And of course, we would be delighted to talk with sailors who have their dinghy, daysailer, cruising keelboat, or racing keelboat. It’s all here for you in Toronto’s east Beaches neighbourhood.

Keep an eye out on our events page for details on this season’s open house.
