The wind in your hair, the warm sun on your skin, and a gentle spray on your face. Sailing – what a great way to feel connected to the lake.  Add others who also enjoy sailing, and you have the Chandos Lake Sailing Club! We’d like to meet you – everyone is welcome, even if you haven’t sailed before or don’t have a boat.


Participants: Sailors of all ages, ability and experience are invited to participate in five informal races per summer in three classes (Catamaran, Sloop and Sailboard). There is no commitment – you can come out for just one race if you’d like.

Location: Two course locations – Main Lake (the area out from the public beach) and West Bay

Time: Races start at 1:30 pm and last approximately 1 hour. (Check in with the committee boat 10 minutes before the race for instructions.)


Contact: Call or text Sue Walkovich at 416-571-3282


Following each race there’s a social to present awards, share tips, strategy & stories over refreshments.

There is no charge for attending the races; however, we do request contributions to cover our costs for awards, equipment and socials. 


The fees are $30 per sailor for the season, $20 for family and friends to attend socials for the 2024 season, or $8 per social.


We have also partnered with Sharon and her friendly team at Gilmour Bay Marina who will supply a wide selection of our new sailing club apparel.
