Crew rowing is back!
On Thursday June 24th the Ontario Government announced that the Province would move to Step Two in the Reopening Plan effective June 30th.
As per Row Ontario:

Team sports are now able to proceed if there is no likelihood of physical contact between participants - meaning ONEC rowers can row in crew boats of any size as long as no physical contact happens between rowers.  There are no rowing cohorts or circles required.

Masks are not required while rowing in crew boats.  Wearing masks at other times (such as in preparation and post sport activity) is still encouraged especially when maintaining a distance of 2 metres becomes difficult.
ONEC Rowing is still required to maintain our Member Registry.  Please complete the screening questions upon arrival to the club.
Organized sporting events are now able to include up to 25 people.
Available Crew Boats:
Our Scotty (Hudson racing 2X - Heavyweight)
Renaissance (Kaschper racing 2X - Lightweight)
Newboro (Hudson T7 2X - All weight Classes)
Arriving Shortly:
Odawa (Hudson T11 4X+ - All weight Classes) - Available shortly

June 8th

Following the announcement by the Ontario government yesterday that the province will be entering Step One of re-opening on Friday (11th June), we are delighted to announce that from Friday the pavilion canteen will be open for serving food and drink for consumption in the patio garden beside the tennis courts.  The canteen is open to members of all sports.
Capacity is limited to four people per table / group. As with last year, members are not permitted to enter the pavilion (except for washroom use) and should place their food and drink orders with the staff member at the desk on the deck.
The waterfront is also now open for all our water sports (Rowing, Sailing and Paddling), and from Friday, instructional courses and classes will be permitted (up to a maximum of 10 participants).  Each sport will send out further information on the specific details of programming, courses or lessons available to members.
We look forward to a great summer of safe socially-distanced sport !

Suite à l'annonce faite hier par le gouvernement de l'Ontario selon laquelle la province entrera dans la première étape de la réouverture vendredi (11 juin), nous sommes ravis d'annoncer qu'à partir de vendredi, la cantine du pavillon sera ouverte pour servir de la nourriture et des boissons à consommer dans le jardin patio à côté des courts de tennis.  La cantine est ouverte aux membres de tous les sports.
La capacité est limitée à quatre personnes par table / groupe. Comme l'année dernière, les membres ne sont pas autorisés à entrer dans le pavillon (sauf pour aller aux toilettes) et doivent passer leurs commandes de nourriture et de boissons auprès du membre du personnel au bureau sur le pont.
Le front de mer est également ouvert à tous nos sports nautiques (aviron, voile et pagaie), et à partir de vendredi, les cours et classes d'instruction seront autorisés (jusqu'à un maximum de 10 participants).  Chaque sport enverra des informations supplémentaires sur les détails spécifiques de la programmation, des cours ou des leçons disponibles pour les membres.
Nous nous réjouissons d'un bel été de sport sûr et socialement équilibré !
