Welcome to ONEC Rowing!

The Ottawa New Edinburgh Club offers rowing opportunities for its members using club-owned boats, as well as providing rackage space for privately owned boats.



Learn to Scull: a three week-end class, is the way in for those with no experience of the sport.

Rowing Day Camp: a week-day morning class is offered to newbies, novices and intermediate scullers.

Each year we strive to renew our fleet, improve our docks, present interesting clinics, as well as offer ambitious tour and head race schedules for all levels. The Rowing Consultative Committee listens to the members and new programs are introduced in addition to the full range of coaching from the novice to the advanced rower.

Sculling Traffic

With many scullers and rowers on the water, to avoid a collision it is essential that you follow the official sculling traffic routes.

NOTE: Don’t let existence of sculling traffic routes give you a false sense of security! Expect to encounter rowers and scullers from both ONEC and the ORC, and fishing boats and cruisers, on the wrong side of the river at any time. Practise defensive sculling; always be checking for hazards in the direction you are sculling.

CAUTION WHEN CROSSING THE RIVER While crossing the river from/to the ONEC boathouse, scan for other river traffic: also crossing the river; travelling upstream or downstream both near the shore and near the centre of the river.
