The 2020 Sailing Season is one we have never experienced before.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions placed by our Provincial and Municipal Governments as well as Sail Canada and Ontario Sailing Authorities, we have adjusted our operations to ensure we keep the health and safety of our Members, Staff , Volunteers and any DSAO Participant as our priority.

The good news is we are sailing!!!

Please be patient with us as there will be a couple of more steps to follow when applying for membership as well as adhering to the strict COVID-19 Policies and Protocols DSAO has put in place.

As with any other year, we encourage all sailors, volunteers, donors and supporters to join DSAO as members.

Sailing members have access to DSAO sailing programs, including boats, safety equipment, assistive devices and dockside assistance during program hours of operation. In 2020, Sailing Members can only recreational sail and receive instruction, but not go through the formal CanSail Program.

Volunteer Members take an active role in the organization by volunteering as a sailing companion, dock assistance, or other ways they can contribute to helping the operations of the organization. This year more than most, we need our volunteers!

Unfortunately, we will not be having any in person DSAO Social Events but there are virtual socials which Members can attend. The DSAO Annual General Meeting 2019 was held in May virtually and was a big success! We will hold our next Annual General Meeting in Spring 2021 and a Virtual Meeting of Members in the Fall 2020.

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

New members and returning members are required to disclose relevant health information and a waiver form upon registration for membership. There will be a separate request for accommodation information as well as our new COVID-19 Protocols after membership is approved. The documentation is strictly used by staff to provide the most appropriate dockside and on-the-water service. Individual annual memberships are not transferable.

We welcome you to join us in getting out on the water this year.
