Philippe Colas and Philip Hedrei have partnered to create a g/l rowing club in Montreal, CLUB d’Aviron ODAWAGAN. Phillippe had always wanted to pursue rowing and was dismayed at the lack of a rowing entry in the Montreal 2006 bid. Philip, an avid collegiate rower, yearned to get a boat together in Montreal. The two combined forces and now have some 40 rowers and with Philips coaching, a very competitive slate of boats! Congratulations Phillippe and Philip! Over the course of the summer, the team rowed in morning and evening sessions and were able to launch two eights and a four.


Update: 08 Oct 2009 - The Owawagan Rowing Club has gone into hibernation but the Montreal Rowing Club openly welcomes gay and lesbian rowers.
