Dreaming of Sailing.
The ground is still frozen but the days are getting longer and, just like us, we bet you are dreaming about sailing. The LOOR Committee is meeting regularly and planning for a full racing season in 2021. If it can happen we will make it happen!
Rates & Dates for the 2021 Racing Season have been set, NOR's are being finalized, and logistics are well in hand. Registration will open on February 28, 2021 and LOOR continues to host our Webinar Series to help prepare racers for an exciting 2021 Racing Season.
The LO600 is Back in 2021
Great news for all those ultra-long distance racers, the LO600 returns in 2021. The Lake Ontario 600 Challenge is a 600 nautical mile race, consisting of a "Twice Around" sailing of the LO300 Main Duck Island Course. The LO600 has been held every second year since 2014, providing the opportunity to circumnavigate Lake Ontario twice.
LOSHRS Awards Banquet
The LOSHRS Awards Banquet which would normally take place this month will obviously not happen, but don’t despair. We have flags for the winners of the races we held last season and are planning for the distribution of those flags. Once the winners have their flags, we are going to hold a virtual awards banquet to celebrate those winners. Stand by for details.
