High Water Levels 2017
Currently there are very high water levels affecting many clubs in Ontario. This has caused a lot of docks to be covered with water. Due to the potential hazards caused by this condition, many of our member clubs are unable to accommodate visiting boats at this time. They are asking that you reach out to your membership and let your members know.
Below is a current list of our member clubs that have reached out with the status of their facilities.
Please contact each club for updates on their status.
