The Sailors were formerly known as the Belmont Bombers, playing their last season as the Bombers in 05-06. Prior to the 06-07 season, they changed their name to the Central Elgin Express. This was done as the team was going to be splitting their home games between Belmont and Port Stanley. During the 07-08 season, the Express played all their home games in Port Stanley, which was formerly home to the Port Stanley Lakers, which are now known as the West Lorne Lakers.
During the summer of 2008, it was announced that The Central Elgin Express had been sold by Peter North and Bill Walters to a group of four equal owners led by St. Thomas resident Dale J. Howard. The other three owners are Harold Lang, Matt Stolk and Mike Carson. The Sailors were not able to play in 08-09 because the OHA had already been done up. So the Sailors will begin play in 09-10.
