SBSC Club Information
About The Club
SBSC is one of the best kept secrets in the city. Our club is located in
Bluffer's Park, at the foot of Brimley Road in Scarborough, right on
Lake Ontario. We have a lovely two-story clubhouse adjacent to our
harbour and docks. We liken it to having a cottage in the city. As a
backdrop we have the scenic Cathedral Bluffs.
If you want to get into boating at a minimal cost, we are the club for
you. We are even more attractive if you have a family, as a membership
includes your spouse and dependent children under nineteen.
Our club accommodates only trailered boats, both sail and power, as well
as paddle-craft. Paddle-craft are stored on racks but all other boats
are stored on their trailers and must be able to be launched from our
ramps. One factor which allows us to keep our fees to a minimum is not
having the expense of the upkeep of permanent docks.
If you don't own a boat, we have members without boats. The club owns a
fleet of CL14 and 420 sailing dinghies which are available for the use
of qualified members who have WSII or CANSail II certification.
If you don't have the qualifications, a course in
our sailing school will teach you the skills to safely handle any sailing boat. The course is open to any adult wishing to acquire their Canadian
Yachting Association CANSail certificate. During the course, you have
the use of the club and facilities, and upon graduation you will be
offered the opportunity to become a trial-member for the duration of the
membership year at a low cost.
We have a variety of craft in our club. There are fishing boats,
cruising sailboats, daysailers, catamarans, dinghies, canoes and kayaks.
During the boating season there is racing and weekend cruises are
organized for the larger sailboats. If you like to fish for the big
ones, join the fishermen in the early morning and later commiserate over
a beer about 'the one that got away'.
The club house is used by members year round, and social activities
include pot-luck dinners as well as theme nights that we have at various
times throughout the year. Another popular pastime are the pub and
There's lots more to tell, so contact us and come visit. You won't regret it.
Our two Open Houses for 2019 are May 11th and June 23th from 10 am to 4pm. Drop in, go for a sail and have lunch on us!
Fees to join SBSC are among the most reasonable in the city.

Fee Structure 2019
To get to SBSC take Brimley Road south from Kingston Road to Bluffer's Park.
Follow the signs for the Yacht Clubs (the road to the left) at the
bottom of the hill. This continues to the east and follows the line of
the Bluffs along the speed bump controlled road. When you reach the
fork in the road, take the right and continue south to the chain link
gate with all the club signs on it.
If you find yourself in a parking lot at the east end of the road that follows the line of the Bluffs, you have gone too far.
