    After 40 years of Windsurfing racing at the club, It's a New Era as foiling and Wing-foiling are winning for the first time!

    Club pros Max and Simon are (naturally) in the forefront -- Max displaying
    amazing control of the WING foil and winning 2 (?) of the 3 races, closely
    eking out wins in the final lap over fellow foilers and the top raceboards
    (who have dominated club racing for decades!)

    Also finishing in the top 4 or 5 in the fleet of 20 are student foils like
    Paul and others -- can't wait to see the official results! The foils must
    travel longer routes to the windward mark but on the fast reach down to
    the leeward buoy they jump into the lead -- very entertaining!  (Should
    look good at the Olympics.)

      TWC is excited to be returning back to the club May 22, 2021 with the following safety measures in place.

      SCREENING

      TWC uses the COVID-19  Staff  Screening  Questionnaire/SMART WAIVER to  screen all  individuals  who  perform  work, including  employees,  workers,  volunteers,  contractors,  suppliers,  etc.,  before  they  enter  the club and asks Members to conduct a self-screening assessment. If they answered YES to any of the questions, they are asked to not come to the Club.

      PHYSICAL DISTANCING

      TWC asks Members to keep a physical distance of at least two metres/six feet from each other and posts physical distancing  signs  at all  entrances,  trailers, employee  areas, and public areas (e.g. washrooms and the beach).  

      MASKS AND FACE COVERINGS

      TWC asks everyone to wear a mask or face covering that covers their nose, mouth, and chin during any period when they are indoors. i.e. washroom, trailer.

      PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

      HAND HYGIENE AND RESPIRATORY ETIQUETTE

      TWC provides hand sanitizer (70-90%  alcohol  concentration)  by  entrances  and throughout the  club  for  employees  and patrons  to  use (and posts sign on how to clean hands, cover your cough and protect yourself.)

      CLEANING AND DISINFECTING

      TWC patrons are asked to wipe surfaces before and after each use in the washrooms with provided wipes. TWC washrooms are cleaned weekly.

      For more information, please email socialmedia@torontowindsurfingclub.com

      Stay well. Stay safe. Have fun.

      The Ontario Government has announced the extension of the Emergency Stay-At-Home Order, providing updated regulations that now require the closure of outdoor recreational amenities and marinas.  

      In order to ensure the security and safety of our members, the Club is closed effective immediately and until further notice.  This closure includes TWC grounds and facilities such as the parking lot, lawn, storage trailers, clubhouse and washrooms.

      This action reflects recommendations from Ontario Sailing and is consistent with the decisions of all other clubs of the Outer Harbour Sailing Federation which are also closed.

      As a result of this closure, the locks on the entry gate and all storage containers have been changed and we ask all members to stop visiting the club immediately. 

      City by-law officers and/or the police may enforce with fines and penalties which start at $750 for individuals, significantly more for the club. 

      Those with storage will receive a separate email later today with instructions on making an appointment to arrange for one-time pick up and removal of any gear from TWC property. Once removed, equipment may not be returned until after the lock down regulations are lifted.

      We thank you for your support and cooperation during this challenging period and hope that everyone will do their part to successfully “flatten the curve”. Please click here to contact us with any questions.

      For further updates from TWC, please continue to monitor your inbox and TWC social media, or visit https://torontowindsurfingclub.com/coronavirus.

      The Ontario Government new Lockdown Order went into effect at 12:01 am on April 8. There were no changes to the portion of the Regulations that impact boating clubs or marinas (the category that we fall within), as such, the Toronto Windsurfing Club remains open for individual sailing with current restrictions in place. 

      Stay home if you are not feeling well and use Ontario's online COVID-19 screening tool if unsure of your symptoms.

      Note that only 1 person is permitted in the storage containers and washroom at a time and masks are mandatory in these spaces.  Please maintain a 2m distance between yourself and others and wash your hands regularly (hand sanitizer is available in every trailer).

      Keep safe, be kind, stay healthy.
