LO300 Survey - Thank you to all respondents

LOOR issued a survey in November to many of the skippers from the 2014 and 2015 running of the Lake Ontario 300. The purpose was to obtain feedback to help us exceed racers expectations in the planning and execution of this event in the future.
 
Thank You! The response rate was excellent and LOOR is currently reviewing the feedback. Action Items will be shared in the New Year. The winner of the draw prize related to this survey will be announced in the LOOR January, 2016 E-newsletter.


Thinking About Single-handed Racing in 2016?

Ever thought about single-handed racing? Give LOSHRS a try. You will have lots of experienced solo skippers' brains to pick to help you get started. Racing the LOSHRS series solo also gives you some extra bragging rights at the bar after each race.
 
If you a not ready for the single handed challenge, race with another crew in a double-handed division. Start deciding who you want to enjoy some fun racing with this year. You can have one crew the whole series or spread the fun amongst your family and friends.
