Golf Tournament WinnersThe Boating Ontario team would like to thank all those who participated and contributed to this year’s sold out event. Although teams were faced with less than ideal conditions your spirit and enthusiasm was truly appreciated. We hope that everyone had as much fun on the course as we did putting this event together. A true sense of fellowship was felt by all the sponsorship, donations and volunteer excitement throughout the day.

Due to your generous support, valuable funding was raised for both Ontario Sailing and Boating Ontario’s MarineWorx Development Fund. In 2019, the MarineWorx Development Fund assisted over 45 staff at Boating Ontario member locations with over $15,000 returning to the market. Our future and existing employees are benefitting from education and training support to strengthen and grow the marine workforce.

“Networking and enjoying moments together have always been a cornerstone of this event and behind those moments is the knowledge for each and every one of us that the time and dollars we commit to this day go right back to our sport”, said Rick Layzell, CEO Boating Ontario.

A special thanks to our major event sponsors Mercury Marine, Toronto International Boat Show, Dealerplan and Yamaha for helping make this event a great success and to all of our 36-hole sponsors for showing your support for two great causes.

Congratulations to all of our contest winners and big Boating Ontario congrats to the tournament winners;
