The Sarnia Sailors were a senior team.
They started play at the Senior B level in 1947-48 when they won the provincial title. That was followed by two more good seasons at that level. They also played two seasons in the International Hockey League (1945-2001).
After they made it all the way to the Senior A final in 1950-51, it was decided to give the Senior A level a try. That was a bad mistake. In two full seasons (1951-52 & 1952-53) the Sailors finished in sixth place and out of the playoffs. It was no surprise that they dropped out during the 1953-54 season.
The Sailors carried on for a few more seasons at the Senior B level with some success before finally folding.
