NORWAY BAY Sept. 8, 2018
The pier in Norway Bay saw an unprecedented gathering past Labour Day occur Saturday afternoon, as locals waited upon a visit from a boating club that usually resides downriver.
As the clock rolled closer to 3 p.m., five boats could be seen making their way across the river and those watching from the pier stood up to welcome members of the Manotick Antique Boat Club, as they pulled up to the pier.
“This is the first year we’ve done a big tour [up the river],” said club member Kevin Hayes.
He explained that the lately-arranged outing, organized just a week or so prior, was a chance for club members to explore different bodies of water in the area while promoting the antique boating industry, too. Though just five boats arrived that day, each carried at least four passengers, many members of the Manotick club or the Chats Lake Boat Club.
