Kick off the 2023-touring season with a two-day outing on the beautiful Rideau Lakes. Participants should have at least one season’s rowing experience including quad rowing.

Simmons Cottages, between Lake Opinicon and Newboro Lake, will be our launching point. We’ll wind our way through lakes and marshes always on the lookout for wildlife: birds, fish and …. to be discovered!

Overnight accommodation has been arranged by ONEC at Simmons Cottages, located at Chaffey’s Lock. All cottages are equipped with full kitchens. To keep things simple, we ask that you provide your own breakfasts and lunches.

On Saturday night, your hosts will provide a buffet dinner at the cottages.

Please join us for this early season tour!
