Community Keelboat Sailing
The Community Keelboat program allows skippers to reserve a boat. Maintained and properly equipped, our Sharks, C&C 24 and Tanzer 26 offer a convenient option for keelboat sailing in the Kingston area if you do not have your own boat. Community Keelboats can be signed out for a few hours or full day. Several are equipped to sail to overnight destinations. KYC is the only club in these waters that provides such a program!
Applicants with previous sailing experience can apply by providing a sailing resume. Tell us which boats you have sailed, charters you have skippered, and list any sailing qualifications. An on-water orientation and evaluation by one of our skippers will be arranged. If you have little or no keelboat sailing experience, successfully completing the our Adult Learn to Sail Program may prepare you to become a Community Keelboat skipper.
KYC Full Membership (Family or Single) is required. Learn more about joining KYC
Community Club Fleet
The Community Club fleet is comprised of well-maintained, properly equipped boats. Known for their seaworthiness and versatility, Shark 24s were designed and built in Canada. It has a history of providing families with decades of fun on the water, and is also an internationally recognized racing fleet. Some have crossed the Atlantic and Canadian sailors have wintered in the tropics aboard their Sharks.
