Gananoque hydroplane regatta postponed

GANANOQUE – Next weekend’s (June 3-4, 2017) hydroplane races along the St. Lawrence River have been called off due to high water levels.

The Nickel Cup Hydroplane Regatta, in its second year, was expected to bring in thousands to the town during the first weekend in June.

There are worries that debris in the water from the recent record flooding could pose a danger to competitors hurling down the river at incredible speed.

Pending approval from town officials, the Nickel Cup will go on Sept. 16-17, 2017.
