8 °C: the water temperature at the docks on May 5.
While waiting for the water to warm up, ONEC work crews have been busy getting the shoreline and docks ready for our boats when they're brought back on May 14.
On Saturday the boat storage area was cleared of leaves, racks were re-positioned, all sand bag anchors were replaced, and new padding was added.
The quad docks are now repaired and set in place, ready for the start of Elmwood School's spring rowing season on May 6.
Repair work on the docks continues this week, as well as the building of storage racks for the Hudson T-7 doubles at the docks.
