Lake Ontario 300 Offshore Race Preview

J/109s sailing Lake Ontario 300 (Port Credit, ONT, Canada)- From July 12th to 16th the Port Credit YC in Port Credit, Ontario will be hosting their annual Lake Ontario 300 race for a fleet of singlehanded, double-handed, and fully-crewed yachts from across Lake Ontario. It is considered one of the most challenging Great Lakes long distance offshore races due to the nature of the course sailing a criss-crossing navigation of the lake.  The event is popular with J/Boats crews in the region and many are participating in nearly all the divisions.

In the IRC 1 Class, Bruce Pierce’s J/122 HOOLIGAN II from Toronto, ONT.  In the PHRF Singlehanded 1 division will be Geoffrey Roulet’s J/35 JEANNIE from Kingston, ONT. In the PHRF 1 Division are several full-crewed teams, such as Robert Dewitte’s J/100 PERSPECTIVE, Kim Piller’s J/109 LIVE WIRE, Murray Gainer’s J/109 LIVELY, and Matt Emerson’s J/120 RED LEAF.  For more Lake Ontario 300 sailing information Add to Flipboard Magazine.
