Welcome to the Lake Ontario Offshore Racing Group Boat Show Newsletter!
The Lake Ontario Offshore Racing Group is in full swing at this year's Toronto International Boat Show and the interest we are seeing in all three of our events over the opening weekend has been excellent. New participants are looking to compete from all around the lake and even out of province. Some new competitive yachts are planning to come into this year's LO300, which is exciting.
The LOSHRS looks like it is going to continue to expand with lots of enthusiasm.
So far at this year's show we have confirmed that Sperry Top-Sider will once again be a major sponsor of the Lake Ontario 300 and the Susan Hood Trophy Race.
North Sails will once again be our exclusive flag sponsor with the best division flags on the lake.
Mason's The Store and Rigging Shoppe are both returning as our retail sponsors and will be co-sponsors of our Friday Night Pre-Race Party. Gill has confirmed that they will once again be our Official Clothing Sponsor.
Make sure you drop by and say hello, give us your feedback and visit one of our many sponsors while your at this year's show.
