Visit us at the 2020 Boat Show - Booth #1615!
The annual Toronto International Boat Show is always a great venue for saying hello to fellow racers and sharing information about the upcoming offshore racing events. Although launch is still about three months away, the boat show seems to jump start the adrenaline in all of us as we look ahead to the summer season.
