We're all about having fun!

The CIYC is so much more than sailing.  It is a place to be to share fun and excitement with family, friends and the opportunity to meet new people.  The CIYC is committed to supporting these social ideals.  We have a great family, and we hope you can join in.  

The CIYC has many social events to enhance these experiences, from pot lucks, regattas, BBQ’s, games, our annual Commodore’s Ball, and joint sailing excursions to Pelee Island and beyond. We have programs and games suited for all ages.  Our clubhouse is well equipped with a comfortable family room, modern kitchen appliances and amenities to host a wide variety of events for our members.  Outside, we have BBQ’s, picnic tables, and a beautiful green space to watch the sun rise and set at the southern most yacht club in Canada.


Social events at CIYC are a part of our heritage, and CIYC is committed to creating fun and engaging events for all our members throughout the year.  Come and enjoy the fun!
