Ontario Adventure Rowing (OAR)

Download the 2017 OAR Schedule of Distance Events here.

OAR sponsors an exciting series of tours, marathons, coastal rows and other distance events in eastern Ontario from May through October. See the OAR website for information on individual events, registration forms and contacts.

To take part in these events, you must be a member of the OAR Association. In addition, some of them are restricted to experienced scullers or require previous touring experience. ONEC membership includes OAR membership and all qualified ONEC rowing members are encouraged to participate.

Charges apply to cover boat rentals, transportation, food and accommodation. When a trailer is used to transport boats, participants are expected to help load/unload and rig/de-rig.

OAR tours are organized by volunteers in member rowing clubs. In 2016, ONEC will organize the following tours and distance events:
