Water Access

Water privileges will be granted on receipt of payment only. Please note fees for SR & JR Competitive categories include race entries for Ontario races only. The Masters fee does not include any entry fees. All categories include your membership to RowOntario and Rowing Canada Aviron. 

Damage to Equipment Policy

In the event of damage being caused to club equipment, it must be immediately reported to the Club Captain or Head Coach and an Incident Report completed. Club equipment in this context includes any items that are owned, borrowed, or leased by the Club.

Repairs to equipment will be estimated and paid for by the club. However, the individual crewmembers, including coxies, who were using the equipment when the damage was sustained, will be asked for an equal contribution of up to $250 each to cover the cost of the repairs. Any additional balance will be paid for out of club funds and/or insurance. In a multi-boat collision, all crewmembers and coxies involved will be assessed equally regardless of the damage to each individual shell.

The club members so assessed will be allowed a period of twenty-one days to make their payment to the club. Should any payment not be received by them, water privileges will be revoked for that member(s) until payment is received. Please make cheques payable to Hanlan Boat Club and remit payment along with this completed and signed release waiver.

I acknowledge that I have read and will abide by the ‘Athlete Code of Conduct’ published in the Member Handbook.
