Sailonline is delighted to announce that it will be partnering with Lake Ontario Offshore Racing (LOOR) to run virtual versions of three of their popular races raced on Lake Ontario. LOOR is a not-for-profit organisation and is run by volunteers drawn from several yacht clubs around Lake Ontario with the aim of delivering the best races throughout the sailing season while also complying with the Clean Regatta rules of Sailors for the Sea.

Sailonline will be racing its Beneteau First 36.7 for all three races:

(1) Susan Hood Trophy Race (June): An overnight fully-crewed 75nm circuit around the west end of Lake Ontario. Run annually every year since 1955 (except 2020, of course) the race is affectionately referred to as ’the coolest race on the lake” and offers a brisk opening to the race season in Ontario.
(2) Lake Ontario 300 Challenge (July): A 300 Nautical Mile figure-eight circumnavigation of Lake Ontario. Since 1990, the LO300 has been a main event for offshore racing on the great lakes and as, probably, the longest freshwater race in the world the course vists the Niagara River, the gateway to the St.Lawrence Seaway at Main Duck Island in the Thousand Islands, and a customs-free visit to the American shoreline of Lake Ontario in New York State
(3) LOSHRS Race #4 (August): A 100 miler race that runs the west end of Lake Ontario, from PCYC to Burlington via Toronto Islands, then to the Niagara River entrance and back to to PCYC.

Each of Sailonline's virtual versions of these real races will open several days before race start to allow practice on-course - the techniques for sailing on Sailonline are the same for all races so all LOOR members, friends and family are invited to start racing for free on Sailonline today!

Sinbad Braves the Bay of Bengal 2023
“Sinbad, you sorry sailor, why have you not told me of this great sea, this giant bay, stretching hundreds of thousands of qasbah east of Al-Hindi to fabled lands where tea and rice and rubber is abundant?” and Sinbad replied “Ahh, umm, shall I go have a look. May I take the Judel Vrolijk 62 again, it’s going to be a long voyage, perhaps a million and one half qasbah (c 3000nm)? I’ll start in Chittagong and follow the coast to the southern tip of the Hindus’ land, round Serendip, head east into the vastness of the seas, and if I’m lucky (no pun intended, oh Mighty One) I shall find land again and then head north and see where I end up”. “Fair winds, Sinbad”, said the Sultan.

Maryland to Alaska 2023
Welcome to this September edition of 2023 OCCH. This route was first sailed in 2020. At the time it was inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposing a half-around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska, now to be sailed in our magnificent Archer 78.
