New Sails

Turn over in sails is a 5 year cycle. The Martin16 sails are used every day all season long, are stretched out and are currently in need of replacing. Dacron heavy duty sails 7.5oz

We need 3 sets for the 3 martin16 sailboats.

$2,300 + HST


The KAPE Seat is an option for sailors who require more trunk support.  The side supports are adjustable in height and width. Customization for extra wide back and tall.

AST needs 2 more KAPE Seats, one customized for wide and higher back and the other size large.

Over half of our participants want to use the KAPE seat, as it gives so much stability and enables the participants to be able to enjoy a wider range of wind strengths when sailing.

$1000 + HST

In addition to these equipment needs we also require operating funds for the program.  The $50 annual membership fees and the $15 fee for a sailing outing cover approximately 8% of our expenses. The Canada Summer Jobs grant covers about half of the salaries of our paid staff. Able Sail Toronto finances expenses such as staff payroll, insurance, port-o-potty rental, gas for the safety boat, etc. 

Able Sail Toronto relies on the support of donors, sponsors and volunteers. Without this support we would not be able to provide this unique program to our community. We are truly grateful for every contribution - financial and personal. We truly cannot achieve our mission without all of our support. Thank you!
