Toronto's Outer Harbour


As a not-for-profit club, we have a responsibility for the stewardship of the water and beach that we enjoy and honour its rich story. For thousands of years the nearby bay, marsh and river have been the traditional passageway, home, and healing place for the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, after more than a century of newcomers, Toronto's waterfront is still the home for many Indigenous people and we are grateful to have the opportunity to enjoy access.

"Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing around in boats." - Club motto from Ratty, in Kenneth Grahame's The Wind In The Willows
