Canadian Yachting Media Toronto Boat Show Contest Winners

Apr 11, 2023

The Toronto International Boat Show was a great success this year, bringing over 65,500 consumers through the gates of the Enercare Centre. Canadian Yachting Media had a strong presence at the show and had a fantastic time meeting everyone at the booth.  

Visitors were able to grab a copy of the February issue of Canadian Yachting Magazine, flip through old archives, give their feet a rest at table and chairs to watch a special boat show video. Children could colour boats at a colouring station and there was a retail portion where customers could purchase any of the PORTS Cruising Guides including the brand new 2023 Lake Ontario edition.

A contest was also held at the CY booth. By subscribing free to Whatever Floats Your Boat during the boat show, attendees were entered for a chance to win one of three prizes: Steiner Binoculars from Stoeger, Auto Inflate PFD from Mustang Survival or a Mercury Swag Bag.

The boat show brought in boaters from all across the country and the winners were picked at random after the show and contest had closed.

Congratulations to our three winners!

1. Colin McGruer, Vancouver Island / Steiner Binoculars Navigator 7×50

2. Evelyn Lacerda, Port Credit Yacht Club / Mustang Auto Inflate PFD M.I.T. 100

3. Max Krüger, Bedford Basin Yacht Club / Mercury Swag Bag

Thank you to all of our subscribers and the thousands of attendees who visited us at the booth.

See you next year at TIBS! Save the dates: January 19 – 28, 2024.
