Thank You! Thank You!
Now that the 2013 Lake Ontario Challenge is complete, we want to take a quick minute to thank our sponsors and contributors who help make this event the Greatest Race on the Lakes.
Sperry Top-Sider once again provided us with some excellent shoe give-aways, our Crew T-Shirts and of course that great Skippers Plan Pre-Race Breakfast.
Mount Gay has been an excellent supporter of this race and this year added the Tattered, Torn and Worn Hat Contest, with the winning Mount Gay hat receiving a nice bottle of Mount Gay XO, shown below being presented by Dianne Reed of One Girls Challenge. THe winning yacht crews will also receive a nice bag from Mount Gay, which will include a bottle of their new Mount Gay Silver! Hopefully everyone got a chance to take part in their rum sampling prior to the skippers meeting. We know everyone will enjoy their Mount Gay Hat.
North Sails has once again provided us with amazing Division Flags that will be a collector item once awarded.
Canadian Yachting, Sail-worldCanada.com and GAM have provided excellent coverage and support for the race.
Thank you, to Pitney Bowes for providing the printing services.
Spirit of Canada Finish the Challenge Draw will be held at the skippers meeting for the 100 mile LOSHRS race in August and the odds of winning this amazing trip have just increased 40%.
The Store Mason's Chandlery, and The Rigging Shoppe once again were our Friday night sponsors and I am sure everyone will support both our retail sponsors.
Thanks you to the many contributing sponsors, we appreciate the support and loyalty of all our sponsors and encourage our participants to say a word of thanks the next time you encounter them. Take the time to check them out, a complete list is posted here.
We look forward to having everyone return again next year for our 25th running of the Lake Ontario 300 Challenge.
