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 2006.


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.

Adult sailing instruction, for those 18 and over,  is available on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5 to 7 in July and August. Lesson prices are for two evenings for up to two people. Group rates and dates can be arranged. We are now offering two levels for adult sailing, Learn to Sail for beginners or those wishing to refresh their skills, and Learn to Race for those who have completed Learn to Sail and want to learn more about dinghy racing.

If you are an SPS members and you have completed the Learn to Race adult lessons and/or have been approved to sail by our instructors you may sail one of our boats on Wednesday evenings during our sailing school’s race night.  It is a good time to practice your skills while there are others on the water with you.
