Community Sailing

COVID-19 protocols at KYC

The KYC Community Club Sailing program enables skippers without boats access to the KYC fleet. Routinely maintained and properly equipped, our boats offer a convenient option to keelboat sailing in the Kingston area if you do not own your own boat. Community Club boats can be signed out for a few hours or full day, or participate in club racing. KYC is the only club in these waters that provide such a program!

How do I join the KYC Community Club program?

Community Club applicants are asked to provide their 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 Adult Learn To Sail (ALTS) skippers or Community Club members will be arranged. KYC Full Membership (Family or Single) is a requirement for a qualified skipper in the Community Club. Learn more about joining KYC.

If you are new to sailing, it is recommended that you take KYC’s ALTS eight-evening course. ALTS courses are available to Associate members on a first-come-first-served basis. After becoming a qualified skipper, you can upgrade to Full Membership and participate in the Community Club.

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.
