Sailing

SailONEC is a volunteer based sailing club within the Ottawa New Edinburgh Club. It provides sailing for members on club owned boats, mooring for privately owned boats, and summer sailing camps for young sailors. We offer a sailing experience that suits your needs, from beginner to boat owner.

You do not need to own a boat to enjoy sailing all summer long! SailONEC provides dinghies for members to use at no additional cost than the basic sailing membership.dinghies

You do not need to know how to sail! SailONEC provides training for new members at no additional cost than the basic sailing membership.

Interested in getting involved? Please contact our current Sailing Director: Director@sailonec.com.

Our new member training program is the cornerstone of our sailing program.  You can become members and you will be able to participate in the program.  The lessons are provided by experienced club members and it is a great way to meet club members. The goal of the program is to train members to become self-sufficient on the water as there is no Duty Officer at the club. Once you are qualified as skipper, you will be able to borrow club boats (without any supervision).  There are no additional fees for either training or use of the boats.

SailONEC has a presence on Facebook. If you wish to join the group (for SailONEC members only) where we share pictures and videos of the sailing season please contact the Sailing Director.
