July 8, 2021
We are excited to announce that we remain “Go” for the start of the 2021 Lake Ontario Racing Season on July 10th and look forward to a great race.
The Lake Ontario 300/600 Challenge Race (LO300/LO600) is a 300NMand 600 NM sailboat race on Lake Ontario. The race is open to single handed, double handed, fully crewed keelboat and multihull sailboats.
With the Canada-USA Border remaining closed, the Main Duck and Scotch-Bonnet Courses will be modified to keep racers completely in
Canadian waters. Unfortunately this also means that sailboats from the USA will not be able to participate this year. We look forward to racing with our neighbours next year.
We have reduced the number of YB trackers this year and due to this limited number we will be capping the number of racers so if you plan to race this year, please register quickly so you don’t miss out.
Although PCYC will be welcoming boats, there is a very limited number of slips that will be available before and after the race. We will be reaching out to neighbouring clubs to help us facilitate slips for those who need one. If you are an out-of-town crew, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are coming. We can then plan for your arrival.
Updated Sailing Instructions and NORs are to be released soon. Please check them to make sure you know about the modifications for this year.
Please remember that if you are new to offshore racing and have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com or contact your LOOR Ambassador.
I must end with the caveat that things can change very quickly in these difficult times so although we are doing our best to put on a great race, we may still be forced to cancel. We do however promise to keep the lines of communication open and let you know of any changes as soon as we can.
See you on the water!
