The Women’s Keelboat Championship draws competitors from across Canada. Hosted annually, and rotating through the western, central, and eastern regions, this event returns to Toronto in 2018 after 10 years.
The Shark has a reputation as an outstanding racing boat, challenging for experienced racers, yet approachable for novices.
Designed by George Hinterhoeller in 1959, when he was looking for a boat that would "go like hell when the wind blew”. The Shark is the biggest one-design class on the Great Lakes, with more than 2,500 in North America and in Europe.
