J/80 Canada Fleet Growing

Port Credit YC J/80 Challenge Cup- Larry Alexander and friends on the north shore of Lake Ontario (Hamilton to Toronto) have formed a small group that are diligently putting together a fleet of J/80s on Lake Ontario (perhaps a J/80 World's boat or two?).

As Larry describes, "..the reason I’m writing is we’re putting together a friendly match in September at Port Credit YC with the hopes to create some local knowledge and interest in J’s.  The PCYC race committee chair has generously offered to run the series and our hope and desire is that J/80 owners (and potential owners) have some interest in helping get the word out and participating!"

Furthermore, Larry says, "So far we have contact with seven boats of which we believe we’ll be able to put together a race, and we’ve set up a hotmail account ( and a FaceBook group (J80 Lake Ontario).  One of our owners went so far as to put his boat in the Toronto International Boat Show last winter created a lot interest, but we need more enthusiasm from any and all sources. Ideas welcome."  Please contact Larry at mobile# 416-464-5236 or
