About ONEC
ROWINg

Located just minutes from downtown Ottawa, ONEC Rowing runs out of the renowned heritage boathouse located on the south bank of the Ottawa River.

 

ONEC offers a wide range of sculling programs. Sculling is rowing with two oars. It is a symmetrical, low impact, all body fitness activity that has been enjoyed in Canada since the late 19th century.

Members of all skill levels are welcome – whether they’re recreational or competitive. Boats are club-owned and can accommodate all skill levels from beginners to expert.

A number of group rowers and tour leaders are bilingual and are always ready to communicate in French or English.

Once you’ve become a member, you’ll hone your skills under the watchful eye of experienced instructors, discover the beautiful Ottawa and Gatineau Rivers (as well as the rivers and lakes beyond), and make new friends. Participate in our group rows, clinics, tours, marathons, erg challenge and pub nights.

 

ONEC’s online boat reservation system also gives members the freedom to scull when it suits their schedule.

ROWING PRO

IMG_0300_edited.jpg

For all the changes that happen around us in life there are some constants and one of those is the way to move a rowing boat across the water in an enjoyable and efficient manner. Over the centuries changes in blade and boat design have altered some aspects of technique but it is still refined down to three elements; blade entry to the water, blade exit from the water and movement of the body in between strokes.

 

I have been so lucky in my life to have worked with amazing coaches and rowers who have taught me how to understand these elements. I will do my best to pass on this knowledge to you in a way that will allow you to discover the joy of stroke making for yourself.
