The Next Sail For Hope – August, 2018!

The Sail for Hope is now a biennial event of the Thornbury Yacht Club located at Thornbury Harbour. This fundraiser brings together both volunteer host skippers with their sail and power boats and guests for a wonderful summer afternoon.

The Thornbury Yacht Club skippers volunteer their boats and crew to take guests on an enjoyable and relaxing cruise through the scenic waters of Southern Georgian Bay. Both our guests and volunteers enjoy the sail and many new friendships are formed during the day’s events. The proceeds from Sail for Hope are donated to the Canadian Cancer Society – Town of the Blue Mountains Branch. Over the last 8 years, the event has raised over $100,000 for the region.

The Town of Collingwood has assumed the operations of the Collingwood Sailing School starting in 2015 and is excited to continue the program. The summer program will continue to run the CANSail 1-4 curriculum as well as evening adult lessons.
