Thank you IYC
We would like to thank the IYC and Vice Commodore, David Baskin, for his generous support of Broad Reach
The Island Yacht Club is nestled in Blockhouse Bay, one of the prettiest coves in the Toronto Islands. Our private tender whisks you on a scenic journey, from Queen’s Quay, across the Toronto Harbour, through Blockhouse Bay, and onto our very own Muggs Island.
It may only be a quick ferry ride from the hustle and bustle of city life, but Island Yacht Club is a quiet oasis that delights first-time visitors and continues to amaze long-time members.
