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!

Virtual PIC Coastal Classic Yacht Race 2021


Welcome! Kia Ora! to Auckland, New Zealand, and Sailonline's annual multihull race against the NZ Multihull Yacht Club competitors over 118nm from Auckland to Russell. Sadly, COVID19 restrictions mean the real race will not be running, but we welcome real racers to our virtual event where we are racing our 60ft trimarans in this testing event in the endlessly varying conditions off the east coast of North island. As is tradition, a hearty breakfast of bacon butties and rum will welcome yachties on their arrival.
