2018 Sponsor of the Year Finalists!
Below you will find the top seven finalists. Remember, it's YOUR vote that will decide who takes home the trophy!
Voting will be open through August 31, 2018. The voting will be "one Looper, one vote."
The seven finalists are:
"We have made the Big Bend Gulf Crossing six times and we have stayed at C-Quarters...all six times. This marina understands the emotions and physical complexity involved with the Gulf Crossing, and work hard to help any boater preparing to leave from, or arrive at Carrabelle, to have everything at their ready and necessary to take away as much stress as possible. I always feel welcome at this marina, fuel prices are always very fair, slip prices are very fair (they never take advantage of stuck or waiting on a crossing weather window Loopers), and the employees simply go out of their way to welcome us."
Curtis Stokes & Associates
"Curtis and his entire team is focused on cruisers finding the RIGHT boat and enjoying the lifestyle, not just making a sale. They took the time to educate us on boats, what to look for and were patient at every twist and turn. It's a pleasure to find a brokerage with such integrity and community involvement."
Dog River Marina
"DRM has been a consistent, active, and generous supporter of Loopers for more years than I remember. All their marina personnel, from dock hands to mechanics to office staff, try their best to make you feel welcome whether you only stay one night or stay for extensive mechanical work. We're proud to show our support of this exemplary marina by personally recommending them to fellow Loopers at every opportunity."
Legacy Harbour Marina
"Marc/Eric/Sheila and staff are the Host with the most! They make room for Loopers even when there is no room, they make everyone feel welcome, and help take care of any problems that boaters may have. We do not know of any marina that hosts more Loopers."
Shady Harbor Marina
"Dockage is easy and directions are great. Great restaurant and pool; everything was clean. It seemed as if we were staying with friends rather than at a marina. It is family run and everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming. Brian Donovan, the owner/operator checked to make sure all was well. I also read on the forum where Brian posts answers to questions - his perspective is a great addition to the looping community."
Queen's Cove Marina
"Whether you need major service, minor maintenance, a boat wash, provisions, a delicious meal, or just a break from the water, Queen's Cove offers expert service. The convenient full service marina at the mouth of Georgian Bay includes an opportunity to sit down with Robin - an expert water guide - to chart out a navigational course on either the north or south channel - tailored to your boating style. Whether you prefer marinas, anchoring out, remote hikes, meandering rivers, open waterways, long or short runs, she will help you customize your journey. It's amazing. Robin took the time to meet with each Looper to create an itinerary based on that boaters preferences."
"Wright's makes Loopers welcome, provides great facilities at fair price. Stay 3 nights, 4th night is free, free pump-out or $20 off stay, and courtesy car. Wright's greatest service this year was to provide frequent and up-to-date information on how the Ontario forest fires were affecting boaters."
