Sailing at Ottawa's Lac Deschênes Sailing Club is like going to the cottage for the day, right in the middle of the city. Look down river and you'll see skyscrapers. Look up river and take in the mountains. You choose which way you want to go. (Okay, the wind might have some impact, but you get the idea!)
