Benefits of being an SBSC Member
Location and Scenic Views
Our club is located in Scarborough Bluffs, just minutes from downtown Toronto; it is one of the most scenic waterfront sites in the city. It is nestled on an island along with 3 other sailing clubs comprising Bluffers Park Boating Federation. Members enjoy reciprocal rights with these neighboring clubs, along with many other clubs in Ontario.
The Diversity of our Members
Club members include
paddlers, sailors, power boaters, fishermen as well as social members. The club is a great place to relax and socialize, even if you are not boating. We provide ample
free parking for members and their guests. In addition to boating, the
nearby Scarborough Bluffs beaches, waterfront park and walking trails
offer additional recreational options.
Our Cottage in the City
Some people travel
miles to get to their cottage, but SBSC membership allows you the luxury of a cottage, just minutes from your home. Our
bright and spacious club house is equipped with WiFi,
kitchen & BBQs, and a great view. It is a wonderful venue for picnics, potlucks or simply an escape from your daily
routine. Throughout the year, club members organize sailing/boating events related to training, social gatherings, or travel presentations. Many holidays and special occasions are celebrated at the club as well.
Sailing and Cruising
Our club operates a sailing
school which offers two courses every summer, leading to the CanSail 2 certification.Members who are CanSail II graduates have
free use of the club sailboats. You
just sign one out and sail away as you see in the picture above. There
is no need to own a boat in order to go for a sail!
privileges enjoyed by SBSC allow you to dock at many clubs
that you visit, as well as granting you use their facilities.
If you are into racing, you can
join the Basin Races and Dinghy Racing at SBSC.
All our boats remain on their trailers, in their designated spots. This allows us to have our mast up all year long if we wish. This way, we are ready to go the minute our boat hits the water.
