Sailonline is delighted to announce that we are again partnering with Lake Ontario Offshore Racing (LOOR), this year offering you two virtual versions from their popular annual Lake Ontario series. LOOR, like Sailonline, 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 in both 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

Both 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 as soon as each race opens!

Sailonline’s 15th Birthday Balloon Race
Sailonline offers a huge variety of boats to sail in. One of the more unusual ones has got to be SOL's Balloon, which was polarized by past SOLmaster 76Trombones. Notably, the SOL Balloon will actually ‘sail’ in other directions other than straight downwind, although it will not 'sail' over land or beyond a 'beam reach'. Like in 2013 and 2018, we will be taking the Balloon across the Atlantic from St. John's and 'land' it in the sea off the Cliffs of Moher.
