Montreal: Sailing

A city of a hundred nations

Montreal Sailing

Sailing in Montreal is fun and accessible and has a great sailing community. You don’t need to own your own boat to experience the amazing waters surrounding Montreal. You can rent a boat for a couple of hours or even a week. Take a sailing lesson from any one of Montreal's many clubs (such as Baie d'Urfe Yacht club) in the summer months with courses designed to suit beginners up to advanced sailors. Sailors in Montreal can simply enjoy Lake St Louis, Lake Champlain, the St. Lawrence River or explore as far as the ocean. Most clubs have harbour space on offer and strorage available for small boats. Racing is also popular.
