Rescheduling of the Gananoque Hydroplane Regatta

May 30, 2017 Town News
MONDAY MAY 29TH 2017, SALABERRY DE VALLEYFIELD – The Hydroplane Racing League (HRL) officially announces the rescheduling of the Gananoque Regatta that was originally scheduled for June 3rd. and 4th. Due to record breaking high water levels and the quantity of debris floating on the river it was decided this morning from the race site to push back the date of the event.
The racecourse conditions would have been dangerous and would have put the driver’s in danger as well as causing heavy damage to their hydroplanes.
Therefore the HRL commissioner and the organisers of this HRL championship event decided to push back the Ontario Hydroplane event to September 16th and 17th. This change will make this event the final one on the HRL calendar for the race teams.
