A not-for-profit corporation formed to restore the sailing heritage to the waters of Parry Sound, by inviting the world's sailors to the Parry Sound Area for regattas, and by offering sail training, especially for youth, seniors and people with disabilities. You have charted your course for a magnificent sailing venue!
Sail Parry Sound is a volunteer-managed club, home of the *Big Sound Challenge, winner of the CYA Recreational Event of the Year Award 2009, and the Sail Parry Sound Sailing School, 2003 winner of the William Abbott Senior Award for Best Sailing School in Canada.
Parry Sound is the largest natural harbour on the Great Lakes. Georgian Bay is on the East side of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada. The pristine, open water, known locally as the Big Sound, and renowned worldwide, is more than five by six nautical miles in area, and more than 300 feet deep with dependable, brisk winds.
Designated as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, this sailing paradise offers every possible convenience for racers and cruisers without compromising the spectacular beauty of Northern Ontario.
The Sound, in the heart of the 30,000 Islands, is accessible directly from the town of Parry Sound which is on Highway 400, only two hours from downtown Toronto.
