The inflatable sailboat movement is growing!
Sailing has been suffering a slow and steady decline for many years now as more and more people move into smaller homes and condos and no longer have the room to store a sailboat. Some people turned to storage facilities and boat clubs but paid more than $500 per year and after several years the cost of storing a boat or joining the club approached the cost of owning a boat. Club members also lamented as they could not take the boats with them to cottages or beaches outside the city and suffered under a variety of rules and restrictions and were often left to the mercy of those who would sail with them. Couple all this with the high cost of maintaining and repairing traditional rigid sailboats and the dream of owning your own slice of sailing heaven began to look like a distant fantasy.
Now with the advent of new technologies comes a revolution in the sailing world: ultra-portable, inflatable sailboats! Now anyone can own a boat, sail it whenever they like and take it with them wherever their heart's adventure draws them to next.
Inflatables are the toughest yet easiest to repair of all the sailing boat designs. They pack into bags and are easy to store and transport. They are 3-4 times lighter than traditional boats making them easy to sail in a larger wind range and much easier to right in the event of a capsize. They make great learning boats and are family and kid friendly, but they also provide an excellent experience for seasoned veterans.
Our goal is to promote and facilitate a renewed interest in sailing by allowing those who could not previously own a sailboat due to lack of space have an opportunity to own an inflatable, portable sailboat. Ultimately we hope to have a fleet of inflatable sailboats so we can hold meet ups and regattas just as they do in Europe where inflatable sailboats have taken off!
Our friends south of the border at Red Beard Sailing share this passion and they have teamed up with CatSailor.com to create the first Inflatable Sailboat Forum. You can visit it by clicking HERE and ask other owners of their experiences owning an inflatable sailboat and see why this is the next exciting chapter in the evolution of sailing!
Anyone who has experienced sailing knows it is one of the greatest things you can do in life. We are passionate about wind and water sports and we want to share this passion with others. That's why we invested heavily in bringing these products to Canada and hope to turn the tide on the downward trend in sailing. Our goal is to help people get on the water and enjoy one of the greatest and oldest past times the world has ever known. Thank you for taking this journey with us and we hope to see you on the water soon.
Do you ever look at some photos and think, "Mmm, that looks like fun, I wish I was there."
That's the feeling I get when I look at this collection of customer photos. Summer is just around the corner and I cant wait for the warm summer sun, to feel the spray of the water and hear the sound of waves gently lapping at the shore.
Hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
It was great to meet so many new people and introduce them to the Joys of Sailing at the Learn To Sail Info Night at MEC. Thanks to the Canadian Albacore Association and St. Jamestown Sailing Club for the invite. Spent a good portion of the night chatting with sailing instructor and fellow wind and water sports enthusiast Alex Byczko whose got some great things going on ... Hopefully we will collaborate on some projects down the road, but until then follow his adventures on Instagram HERE.
Alex was involved in some adventure sailing adventures, check out this video below or by clicking HERE.
On behalf of the Canadian Albacore Association and the local Sailing Clubs of Toronto we will be participating in a special Info Night at Mountain Equipment Co-Op in Toronto located at 400 King St W. from 5:30 to 8:00 PM. The Albacore is a classic boat that I honed my sailing skills on over the years and is the mainstay of the Toronto Sailing and Racing community.
Part of our VISION at Mystic Point Water Sports is to share our passion for Sailing and we are honoured to be contributing to this event. If you've been wondering if sailing is for you or wanted to learn more about local clubs and sailing lessons, this will be a great event to attend. E-mail or call us if you have any questions by clicking on our CONTACT INFO page. Hope to see you there!
Due to the strength of the Canadian dollar against the Euro we have adjusted the prices on our Tiwal and Mini-Cat lineup. Now you can get an even better deal on the award winning inflatable monohull and catamaran sailboats from Europe. Not only that but for a limited time only we are still running our 2017 Spring Special featuring 15% off demo boats and 5% off new sailboats. Owning a sailboat has never been easier. Now you don't need a big expensive trailer to tow a boat around as these sailboats pack into 1, 2 or 3 duffle bags depending on the model and store safely and conveniently at home when not in use. These boats are built tough, unlike fibreglass boats that are easy to damage. These boats are also easy to repair unlike moulded plastic or PVC boats. These sailboats are lighter than the competition making them easy to transport, launch and right in the event of a capsize. They are fun and safe for the whole family. Sailing season is coming so you may want to act fast as these prices are subject to change without any notice due to the volatility of the currency market. If you have any questions just Contact Infocontact us and we would be happy to help.
At Mystic Point Water Sports we are always on the look out for ways to add innovative solutions that allow people to enjoy water and nature the way we do. We look for products that are highly portable so you can follow your heart's calling without requiring an entire caravan. We look for products that are reliable so you don't have to worry once you get there. We look for products that are innovative and multi-functional so when you arrive you can take full advantage of being there.

Our product lines are not typical off the shelf mass assembly that you will find in your local Walmart, but then again neither is a Ferrari or some of the best things in life, and sometimes the best things in life are unique and special just like each of us.
So stay tuned we have some great things in store....
And thank you for taking this journey with us.
