In Praise of the TS&CC

This past weekend, while enjoying a leisurely walk along the waterfront between High Park and Ontario Place, I came across the Toronto Sail & Canoe Club (TS&CC). I headed back there, by bike, last night, in hopes of getting some more information about the club. Within minutes of arrival I was on the crew list, and had spoken to a few skippers who were looking for crew. I ended up on a Beneteau First 235, which is a nice little racer. After 45 minutes or so of reconfiguring the race course, we were off! Just in time for a the storm front to get close enough to steal away all our wind! The race was uneventful, but relaxing, and I got to meet some new people, so it was an overall positive experience. I think I'll be going back next week for more of the same.

Oh, did I also mention that a Crew membership at the TS&CC is extremely affordable? Well, it is!
