Founded in 1967, Midland Bay Sailing Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to community service and providing local access to the waters of Georgian Bay. Two thirds of memberships are reserved for residents that live within a 32–kilometer radius, and we accommodate a range of sailing craft, from dinghies and small keelboats (launched by crane) in the dry-sail area to larger keelboats in the slips. The club has been the focus of racing activity on southeastern Georgian Bay since its founding, but we also have a strong cruising component, and many weekend events combine both interests. Since 1974 the club has occupied its home at the end of Marina Park Avenue, on leased municipal land recovered from marsh through the industry of its membership. As a condition of our lease, we created and continue to maintain the channel that leads to the bay from the public launch ramp at Pete Petterson Park.

The club has a strong spirit of volunteerism. Members collectively provide at least 3,200 hours of volunteer service annually to club duties, and our programming serves the community at large. We operate a vibrant, popular sailing school open to all youths, accommodating more than 130 students every summer in four sessions at affordable prices, and we donate several places to worthy youth through local service agencies. We also offer adult instruction. Our Able Sail program is the only recreational sailing opportunity for people with physical and developmental disabilities between Toronto and Thunder Bay, and is available both to individual participants and clients of local service agencies and treatment centres. A highlight of our event calendar is Sail for Hope, a fundraising event for the Canadian Cancer Society.
