Shoreline Sailboats began in late 2012. We saw the decline of sailing in our area that started in the 1990s, but during that time we were starting families and didn’t have as much time to sail. Today, our own children are old enough to start sailing, but it is clear to us that the number of people we used to sail with has dropped by a large percentage.

We had a lot of fun as kids sailing dinghies and racing big boats on Lake Ontario, and we both agreed that the Sunfish was the one boat that gave us access to the water on almost any day of the year. Our family’s Sunfish was one of the most forgiving and thrilling sailboats we could have asked for. Although the deck was faded and the sail was as soft as silk, it would take almost anything the Lake could throw at it.

So, our business began out of the nostalgia of youthful days on the water, with a desire to bring families back to sailing. What better way than by offering new Sunfish along with the full line of dinghies to sailors young and old.

Happy sailing,
Kyle and Darren Leonard
