True North Yachts to sponsor Post Race Celebration at this year's Lake Ontario 300.
True North Yachts understand this race and are pleased to provide us with a Post Race reception area on their new Hunter Max. This fabulous yacht will be stocked 24 hours with the most desired refreshments and will be docked on the wall in front of the club house and right by the Mount Gay Photo Wall.
This is an exciting new feature that is brought to you by people who know this race, have raced it and have wanted a good cold one at the end.
Line Honors For First Time Participants Sponsored By Gord Honor: Royal LePage
Another new and exciting feature for this year's race is the introduction of a special Line Honor prize that will be awarded to first time participants in the Lake Ontario 300.
Both the Main Duck Course and the Scotch Bonnet Island Course will have a "Line Honor" winner who will be the first yacht to cross the line out of all the first time participants.
The prize is $500.00 and is a great way to encourage new participants into this race. It is an exciting challenge that everyone should try at least once.
Prior to the start of the race you will be confirmed as a first time participant in this race to inform you of your chance to win. You can't be a repeat skipper with a new boat or a repeat boat with a new "Skipper". It's going to be another of our little challenges within the Challenge.
Thanks to Gord Honor: Royal LaPage Realty for making this happen and supporting our race.
Mount Gay Rum - Proud to Launch their new Black Rum at the Lake Ontario 300.
This year Mount Gay will be providing a little twist to their sponsorship with the introduction of their new Mount Gay Black. (due out in Liquor Stores midsummer). This does not change the colour of our traditional hats, but will change the flavour of what we are drinking. With this announcement you can count on some good Dark n' Stormy's being served pre and post race.
The numbers of Mount Gay hats are limited, so please sign up early if you want to be assured of your souvenir hat.
