Lake Ontario Offshore Racing are proud to announce UCC Industries International Inc. as the Gold Sponsor for the Lake Ontario Short Handed Racing Series (LOSHRS).

“We are extremely excited to welcome UCC Industries International and UCC Steelwork Connections as the Gold Sponsor for the Lake Ontario Short Handed Racing Series” commented Joe Doris, Chair of Lake Ontario Offshore Racing. LOSHRS is a series of mid to long distance races for those who want to race single or double handed. Joe added that “Partnering with UCCI / UCCSC will bring added excitement to the onshore activities and the six-race series that make up the LOSHRS.” More specific details on the benefits this new arrangement will bring to LOSHRS participants will be shared in the coming weeks.

“Our company slogan is ‘Your Partners in Building Excellence’,” shares Brent Hughes, President of UCCI. “Though the work that we do in this industry may not benefit sailing directly,” Brent added, “we as a company and as sailors are aware that a great many of our friends are architects, engineers, builders, municipal workers, electricians, plumbers, steel erectors, & manufacturers. Perhaps one day, UCCI or UCCSC can help to benefit some of the work that our friends and colleagues are involved in.”
