PWC Ride – 2018 Edition


The 2018 edition of the now-famous annual PWC ride hosted by Club APRIL Marine (formerly the RPQ) took place on Saturday, July 21st in Port-Lewis, Quebec. This year, we were treated to full-on sun and warm temperatures all day long.

This year’s event attracted nearly 250 PWCers and over 100 PWC from across the province.

The Club APRIL Marine PWC Ride is a free event for Quebec’s entire boating community and a great opportunity to promote best practices while enjoying one’s favourite activity in a safe and responsible way.

Your participation has helped make this event the largest gathering of PWC in the country!

Club APRIL Marine, APRIL Marine Insurance and the Port-Lewis marina had plenty of free gifts and surprises in store for participants: lunch on the water, giveaways of sports towels, water bottles, boating checklists and sunglasses, copies of PLAISANCE Mag, an evening BBQ, and much more.

Upon returning from the ride, Club APRIL Marine decided to skip the draw and instead handed out $50 APRIL Marine gift cards to ALL participants.
