Royal Canadian Yacht Club was founded in Toronto in 1852 to serve both as a yachting recreational club and an unofficial auxiliary of the Royal Navy in the defence of the waters of Lake Ontario. We are one of Canada’s premier sailing and social clubs, with an emphasis on family participation, the development of our junior sailors, and a Corinthian attitude towards excellence in sailing.
The RCYC operates year round from two facilities: our summer home at the Island Clubhouse and our City Clubhouse in downtown Toronto.
The RCYC is more than world class sailing and sports. A breadth of social activities are also available to our Members. Members are cordially invited to attend all our social functions including wine dinners, luncheons, winter and summer balls, theme parties, summer barbeques and open houses. They can also join one of our many social groups to enjoy the camaraderie that accompanies membership at the RCYC.
