Unfortunately, the launch ramp in Sarnia is closed and due to be rebuilt. However, the city has not started construction, and we were not confident that it would be ready in time for our event. Although other marinas in the Belle River/Windsor area had launch ramps, none had enough dockage to accommodate all the boats and we would be spread out over 2 or 3 marinas.
We are very disappointed and apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. All room blocks and reservations have been cancelled at the Guildwood Inn in Sarnia and Caesar’s Windsor.
We would like to thank Steve Gelinas at Sarnia Bay Marina, Rob Troup at The Sandbar Waterfront Cafe, Kellie from Lakeview Park Marina, Mary at Belle River marina, new member Richard Marier, Mike from Ranta marina and all the others who offered their help and services.
We will be back next year when construction has been complete and we hope you will join us! The 2018 date will be announced later this year. Until then, we are looking into a fun run option on another lake on July 22. More to come on that. We also look forward to seeing you at our Fun run on Georgian Bay, July 7-10; Orillia, August 25-27; and Rice Lake, September 15-17.
Thanks for your understanding,
