We encourage all sailors, volunteers, donors and supporters to join DSAO.

Sailing members have access to DSAO sailing programs, including boats, safety equipment, assistive devices and dockside assistance during program hours of operation. Sailing Members can sail recreationally, choose to receive instructional sails, or may participate in racing,

Volunteer Members take an active role in the organization by volunteering as a sailing companion, dock assistance, events, or other ways they can contribute to helping the operations of the organization.

All Members are invited to attend any DSAO Social Events, the DSAO Annual General Meeting held in the Fall and Meeting of Members held in Spring.

Individual annual memberships are not transferable.

Community health, independent living and social service organizations can purchase one or more individual annual membership(s) and can transfer the use of these memberships between two clients per membership and up to five (5) sail bookings per client so as to best service their community.

New members and returning members are required to disclose relevant health information and a waiver form upon registration for membership. The documentation is strictly used by staff to provide the most appropriate dockside and on-the-water service.

Membership is for the calendar year in which it is granted and is subject to Board Approval.

Join us in providing sailing opportunities to Ontarians, regardless of ability or age.

Sails through our bursary program

We understand that there may be individuals who would love to sail with DSAO but may not have the necessary funds to do so. We encourage those to apply for one of our blocks of five (5) sails through our bursary program.

All we ask in return is that individuals give back to DSAO in whatever way they can (by volunteering, encouraging others to join, or simply by saying ‘Thank You’).

Please note that individuals will still have to apply for membership separately. Please apply by emailing [email protected]
