2017 CANADIAN WAKEBOARD NATIONALS MOVES TO SPRAY LAKE / THE RANCH WAKE PARK, ONTARIO
The Canadian Wakeboard National Championship presented by Nautique boats will move from the Ontario Place West Channel in Toronto to Spray Lake / The Ranch Wake Park in Newmarket due to the continued record high water levels of Lake Ontario. The Championship will maintain the same dates of August 19-22.
“While Lake Ontario water levels are now receding from this spring’s 100 year high, we felt the need to change venues to ensure optimal riding conditions, four weeks out from Nationals,” stated Sean Fleming, Chair of the Wake Canada Committee.
“Spray Lake / The Ranch Wake Park is a proven and popular venue 40 minutes north of Toronto that has hosted many wake events, including this year’s Ontario Wake Series as well as the 2002 National championships.”
