Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, January 30, 2020 – The Hydroplane Racing League (HRL), presented by Reliable Diamond Tool, announces that the 1000 Islands Regatta event in Brockville will not take place in 2020.


The financial aspect

Due to a lack of funding, the Brockville Regatta organizing committee has announced that the event cannot be counted among those registered on the 2020 HRL calendar.


Various alternatives have been proposed by HRL in order to reduce the costs of presenting the event. Despite the idea of not including the Grand Prix class for this weekend, funding is still insufficient.

The commissioner of the Hydroplane Racing League, Mr. Didier-Bernard Séguin had this to say,“Obviously we are disappointed not to be able to include the Brockville event on our 2020 HRL circuit. However, we are very aware of the problems that this experienced organizing committee faces and we hope to work in collaboration with them in 2021. It should be equally noted that the tragic accident last year has no connection to the cancellation of this race site.”
