Sail Parry Sound is a not-for-profit corporation formed by volunteers in 1997 to restore the sailing heritage to the waters of Parry Sound, through excellence in sail training and regatta management.

We teach hundreds of students each summer and the sailing school was named Best in Canada in 2003.


Parry Sound is the largest natural harbour on the Great Lakes. Georgian Bay is on the East side of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada. Parry Sound sailors are the envy of the sailing world. Strong, dependable winds, on deep blue water with pine-clad pink granite shores in the heart of Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands, attract racing and cruising sailors alike.

“Passing Wind” by Vic Carpenter For Sale


Looking for a buyer for this boat built by famed boat builder Vic Carpenter. It has deferred maintenance but still looks great. Looking to sell very inexpensively to anyone who is a fan of Vic Carpenter. Any offer welcome as we need to divest ourselves of this boat and would like to get it back to where it belongs. It needs work, but make us an offer we can live with. We will look at all offers.

SPS sailors and members may recognize this boat as it is featured on the Vic and Hazel Carpenter Award for Sailing Excellence.
