    Lake Ontario Anarchy

    Twice in 2 years, a full day of racing ruined. No excuses for RCYC. I am still waiting for my refunds that I requested.

    You will also notice the NYC’s Argosy Rose Bowl has also disappeared (good riddance). So, with the Summerville attracting about 12 boats and no one expected for the Boswell in October ever again, that pretty much concludes LORC offshore racing. Too bad. A little marketing and organizational effort by the sponsoring clubs would go a long way. The Susan Hood was heading the same way until the Lake Ontario 300 took over organizing that race without LORC oversight. Look for at least 80 boats there this year.

    I would have to say that Coug's 1st annual D&S pour was enthusiastically received by the LOSHRS racers who had just weathered a truly ugly Lake Ontario crossing. And that was on top of the Heineken keg hospitality on Friday night. Coug has my vote for Boat of the Year! Now, if the syndicate could just get the interior fluffed and cleaned a bit...

    Last year there were 13 IRC boats in the race. This year, there are already at least 14 registered. There will be two fleets - IRC 1 and IRC 2 with the cut-off somewhere around 1.030. There are trophies for both IRC fleets and a separate trophy for the IRC overall winner IRC I Memorial Cup IRC II John Watson Trophy IRC Overall: Best Corrected Time J.J.Morch Rose Bowl

    Shock Therapy is in with a brand new IRC rating of 1.022. Hopefully, we will have a great IRC turnout. Glad to see PCYC putting some effort back into promoting, running the race, and doing post race activities. The chili is already made and we are just trying to decide on which grape juice would be the best with it.

    Racing is actually very much alive on the Lake. LORC is moving to an administrative/scheduling function which is where it should be. RCYC seems to have opted out of LORC, but since getting rid of the NOOD has actually been putting some effort into the regatta scene (RCYC is still brutal in offshore) LYRA at RCYC is being well promoted The LOSHRS singlehanded/doublehanded fleet is the biggest on the Lake and growing every year The Lake Ontario 300 continues to grow and with BlackBerry as a sponsor will go to the next level. The Great lakes Singlehanded Society has partnered with the LO 300 to offer long distance solo sailing on Lake Ontario Even the 8 Metres seem to be totally jammed Lasers are filling Toronto harbour A soon as we get all those cruiser/racers off their docks, things will really get interesting
