Early Bird Deadline!

Don't forget.... Avail yourself of the early bird registration fee structure by registering and PAYING before March 15th. It looks like things are shaping up nicely with quite a number of returning and new participants.

Quality boatyard time is just around the corner which means your 2016 offshore racing isn't far off either. Remember, a clean bottom is a fast bottom!

Best regards,

Joe Doris
Chair, Lake Ontario Offshore Racing
