The Water Rat Sailing Club offers access to dinghy sailing and paddling in Toronto's Outer Harbour beside Cherry Beach. 200 members and their families participate in their dinghies, catamarans, canoes and kayaks. The volunteer-run non-profit co-op was founded in 1969 and has one of the largest Laser fleets in Canada.

Acknowledgement

As members of a community driven not-for-profit outdoors club, we each have a responsibility for the stewardship of Lake Ontario's waterfront that we enjoy. We acknowledge that for thousands of years the lake and waterways have been the traditional land and passageways for the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and more recently the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, after more than a century of newcomers, the local region is still the home for many indigenous people including members of our club. We are very grateful to those that came before us and the City to have the opportunity to enjoy this Lake, beach and park.

Club motto

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