At Humber Bay Sailing Club, in addition to casual sailing through Book A Boat and Tuesday and Thursday night mentoring sessions, many members want to experience destination cruising. Throughout the season we offer dinner cruises to local clubs and flotilla weekend cruises to clubs beyond the GTA such as Niagara-on-the-Lake or Whitby.
Dinner cruises depart HBSC at 1800 hours for a local club where members enjoy a few hours of dining and socializing and then return to HBSC at approximately midnight. Whether we sail or motor depends on weather and wind, but it is always in the dark so a harness and tether are mandatory.
Flotillas begin the day before departure provisioning and preparing the boat for the overnight adventure. Skippers and crews work together to ensure a departure the following day at 0900 hours. Flotillas usually return to HBSC by 1700 hours the next day to allow time to return the boat to club sailing condition.
