The Royal Canadian Yacht Club (RCYC)

The Royal Canadian Yacht Club (RCYC), founded in 1852, is one of the world’s older and larger yacht clubs. Its summer home is on a trio of islands (RCYC Island, South Island and North Chippewa or Snug Island) in the Toronto Islands in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In 2014, the club had approximately 4700 members, 450 yachts (95% sail) and a number of dinghies, principally International 14’s.

Its winter home since 1980 has been a new building 3.5 km north of the harbour that includes social and sports facilities.
