This past weekend an ORC member had her single stolen from the ONEC Boathouse. The boat is a 2014 Kaschper Raven light-mid weight 1x with the serial number ZKQ04093H014. We are asking those in the ORC community to please keep your eyes and ears open and let the ORC office know should anyone attempt to sell you a boat matching its description or if you see such a boat on the water or otherwise.
This serves as a reminder that all of us in the ORC community must remain vigilant when around the ORC boathouses and ensure personal equipment is secured.
Our Adult Rowing League sold out again this year and we’re so excited for another amazing season of new crews and exciting racing come July!
Our ARL isn’t possible without our amazing team of volunteers from our VP Recreational, Jennifer Shortall, who organizes every detail and makes it run so smoothly, to our volunteer crew coaches who share their love and joy of rowing with their crews to our officials who make ARL July race nights safe and fun for everyone.
ARL is also a huge success thanks to our sponsors. We are eternally grateful to all of our ARL sponsors and partners. Sponsor contributions to the ORC support the purchase of essential rowing equipment that carry people like you, and the at-risk or disadvantaged youth discovering the power of sport through rowing and the athlete that trains hours a day with dreams of rowing for Canada. We want to give huge thanks and acknowledgement to our ARL sponsors: Commissionaires Security, Kodiak Security, Thyme and Again Catering, Orleans Boat World & Sports, Fendock, Halpenny Insurance and Oscapella & Associates.
The ORC is on the hunt for some gently used items including a wheel barrel, freezer, BBQ, life jackets, paddles, and yoga mats. If you’re spring cleaning and have any of these items looking for a new home please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll put them to good use!
The ORC’s National Capital High School regatta was a great success on Saturday, May 28! The race conditions were good, the weather was warm and the participating crews displayed some great racing ahead of CSSRAs this coming weekend.
At the end of the racing, it was Glebe and Lisgar high schools that came out on top in total points with 47 points each. Individual race results and medal winners can be found here. A big congratulations and thanks to all of those crews that came out to race.
Huge thanks to our volunteers and officials who made the event run so smoothly. The day is definitely not possible without a team of people and we are so grateful for everyone’s time and effort! We look forward to more junior racing action at CSSRAs this weekend in St. Catharines!
