Update – May 21, 2020

The March 25, 2020 update is still in effect.  Additionally,  the Queen City Yacht Club (QCYC) will be closed to visiting yachts for the 2020 season.  This closure will be reviewed periodically during the season for possible changes, at least monthly.


Covid 19 Update – March 25, 2020

The COVID-19 situation is evolving rapidly.  Our highest priority is the health and safety of our members and staff. Therefore, in accordance with government public health recommendations and legislation to help control the spread of COVID-19, until further notice,

  • Our boat launch is postponed.
  • Our clubhouse is closed.
  • There is no tender service to the Island.

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide periodic updates. We thank you for patience and understanding as we work through these unprecedented circumstances.

Be safe, be patient, be kind, save lives.


Our restaurant and bar are also in operation.  Please wear shoes on club property.  Call in on channel 68 when nearing our lagoon entrance to receive a mooring assignment.  QCYC is a smaller club and does not have designated visitor moorings.  Reciprocal visitors use the moorings of members who have temporarily vacated them.  The club does not take reservations.

QCYC is a not-for-profit community of sailors and friends located on parkland on Algonquin Island in the Toronto harbour – just minutes from downtown. Our boats are moored in a sheltered lagoon with a gorgeous view of the Toronto skyline.
