ONEC Sailing is a volunteer-based sailing club within the Ottawa New Edinburgh Club.

We provide sailing for members on club owned boats, mooring for privately owned boats & summer sailing camps for young sailors.

We offer a sailing experience that suits your needs, from beginner to boat owner.

About SAIL

You do not need to own a boat to enjoy sailing all summer long!


ONEC Sailing provides dinghies for members to use at no additional cost than the basic sailing membership.


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

Our new member training program is the cornerstone of our sailing program.  By becoming a member, you will be able to participate in our Learn to Sail program.  The lessons are provided by experienced sailors and it is a great way to meet club members. 

Once you are qualified as a skipper, you will be able to borrow club boats (without any supervision).

Learn to sail


SailONEC provides a structured training program for adult members from May until the end of July.  It is comprised of both basic theory and practical skills segments. Experienced, certified skippers provide training to new members under the direction of the head instructor.

The goal of the program is to train new members to a level at which they are competent to act as skippers and take club boats out on their own.

The club has been the springboard for many top area racers. Racing is not only competition – it is also a learning experience and a social event.


Novice sailors are encouraged to come out as crew for the experienced skippers and get a glimpse of the racing scene.
