The club is anxious to resume operations but will continue to wait until the health authorities advise that it is safe and club members are comfortable.
A phased opening is anticipated with club boats only being launched when they are usable for teaching, renting or social sailing. Once a timetable is available, information will be posted here.
THE BLUE SKY SAILING CLUB IS NOT A YACHT CLUB. YOU DON’T NEED A SAILBOAT TO JOIN ALTHOUGH SOME MEMBERS ARE BOAT OWNERS.
You can learn to skipper, join a crew, participate in social sails, take weekend trips and enjoy sailing and social events through the year, all on the club owned boats at North Bay marina on Memorial Drive.

The club has three boats ….
NEW IN 2018, thanks to a generous donor, Blue Sky sailing was able to enhance its fleet with the addition of a classic Northern 25 foot keelboat with inboard motor. “Blaze” has a new furling headsail for 2019 and is an excellent boat for cruising and to handle rough weather.

A Hunter 26, named Artemis, that went into service at the end of the 2017 season. She provides great accommodation and a retractable centreboard so that she can pull up to a sandy beach and is great for picnicing, cruising and overnighting.

The club also has Allegro a Columbia 23T. Allegro is great as a boat to learn on and for solo sailing. She is a rugged, capable boat with a shoal keel.

The sailing club is for area residents and visitors alike who want to learn to sail or share their knowledge with others who love being on the water, powered by wind.
