Guests Welcome

Visit us on Fanshawe Lake on Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM to 4 PM on both days. Admission is free, including entry into Fanshawe Conservation Area when attending this event.

Please note that the City of London has advised they will be doing and "emergency repair" that will require the Clarke Road bridge to be closed over the weekend of June 1 - June 4. Clarke Road will be closed at Killaly Road on the south side of the Thames River and at Fanshawe Park Road north of the Thames River. Access to the Open House will only be from the South at Huron and Clarke Road intersection.

The Fanshawe Yacht Club and Sailing School would like to extend an invitation to you, your family, and your friends to experience sailing in London, Ontario!

  • Discover our adult and youth programs at the Sailing School
  • Sign up for sailing lessons
  • Explore the grounds and tour our welcoming facilities
  • Talk to members and learn how to become one
  • Go for a ride on a sailboat!

Sailing school boats will be available for rides along with knowledgeable individuals and instructors on hand to answer any questions you may have.

To be eligible for a sailboat ride you must:

  • be age 8 and up
  • be physically fit and mobile
  • fit into on of our youth life jackets, or
  • fit into an adult life jacket (no bigger than a large size).

Be sure to bring a pair of soft soled shoes - running shoes would be great. A nylon wind breaker might come in handy if the wind is blowing, and don't wear your Sunday best. Life jackets are supplied, and must be worn when you go out sailing.

Be prepared for a great time!
