Latest News from Advantage Boating!

Congartulations to our first Basic Cruising graduates of the 2019 sailing season. These ladies came from Sault Ste. Marie to learn how to sail in Ottawa only to find out the river ban was still on last week. No problem we said - how about road trip to Kingston? We finished their course aboard our 30 boat Nancy O in Kingston. These ladies really know what it means to go where the wind takes you.  Welcome to the sailing lifestyle! #livelovesail
Its official, the Ottawa River Boating Ban is over!  Friday early morning sail - happy times are here again.    #GetOutOnTheWater #OttawaRiver #SailingImage attachment
