Oakville #2 (Sailing)
Oakville, Ontario’s largest town (2021 Census), is located in the Halton region, between Toronto and Hamilton.
With both close access to Toronto, and its small town vibe, it’s no wonder Oakville was voted the overall best place to live in Canada and the best place for New Canadians (2018, Money Sense).
Oakville’s waterfront is terrific for sailing. Whether you are a racer, a cruiser, or a total newbie, clubs like the Oakville Yacht Squadron, included in this design, offer the perfect launch for your sailing adventures.
Oakville’s pedigree of yacht racing goes back all the way to the 1870’s with the birth of the beloved ‘Aggie’ . The Aggie, commissioned by Cecil Marlatt, and built by Captain James Andrew, launched in 1887, and with 83 victories is the most successful boat in RCYC history.
A military road survey in 1793 began the European settlement, and by 1807 British immigrants were moving in along Dundas Street, and on the shore of Lake Ontario.
In 1834, the Sixteen Mile Creek harbour was considered a Port of Entry to the United States, which attracted various businesses, like manufacturing, grain storage and ship building.
First Nations, dating back over 10,000 years, including the Ojibway, Anishinaabe, and Wendat inhabited this area, particularly along the Bronte River, with later migration to the shores of Lake Ontario.
