The Yacht

Navigate the waters of Toronto on the agile and very affordable Beneteau First 22, “Hot Flash,” part of our Small Boat Club, perfect for groups up to four. As the nimblest in our fleet, it’s designed for those new to sailing, offering a stable yet lively experience, complete with the exhilaration of flying a spinnaker sail. This boat is the foundation of our Learn to Sail Program, making sailing accessible and thrilling, especially with the spinnaker adding an element of speed and excitement.

Though compact, “Hot Flash” comes equipped with a Bluetooth-compatible music speaker, non-alcoholic beverage and specialized snack menu, ensuring a comfortable day out on the water. While there’s no on-board toilet, the simplicity and exhilaration of handling the spinnaker sail more than make up for it. It’s an ideal sail boat rental for getting a taste of adventure with every gust of wind.

The Experience

This is hands-on sailing experience and a great introduction to the sailing world in a casual, relaxed setting. This trip requires no prior sailing knowledge or experience. You have the option of participating to the extent you want; take the helm and be “master and commander” or sit back and relax as we tour Toronto’s harbour and enjoy the awesome cityscape centred around the CN Tower.

Exiting the harbour through the western channel, we pass by Toronto City Centre Billy Bishop Airport. Canada’s 4th busiest international air terminal. Watch out for the ferry, reported to be the shortest commercial one in the world – travelling the 100m between the island and city. Below the water is a walking tunnel connecting the two for those that just can’t wait to catch their flight.

Our true sailing enthusiasts will enjoy the sail in Humber Bay and Lake Ontario, known for its great winds and light waves. On most weeknights and evenings, you can enjoy watching the sailing races of all the local clubs.

As we return to the harbour, on a 3hr+ sail, you may enjoy a cruise through the Toronto Island lagoons to relax in the serenity of this local oasis and the local fauna of: Great Blue Herons, Trumpeter Swans, Mink, Coyotes and deer to name a few. For the supernatural lovers, we will pass by the oldest lighthouse on the Great Lakes. Gibraltar Point lighthouse is rumoured to be frequented by the ghost of its murdered 19th century lighthouse keeper. Your Crew will gladly share the whole story of its haunted past.

Watch out for low flying planes as we cross under the flight path of the Toronto City Centre Airport and return to the dock.
