Learn to capture the wind and control your vessel. 

On everyone's 'must do' list, sailing is a beautiful, exciting sport that lets you truly experience your magnificent surroundings.  Spend a day experiencing the thrill of learning the basics of sailing and being at one with the waves on Toronto Harbour and the Toronto Islands.
