More LO posts here in a month than in the LORC website in a year. Website still has some value, but the forums are shot.Winnie the Pooh said:do you mean dead as in no one goes there?
i don't think the rcyc hoist will accomodate an O30. be nice to the National YC guys, their crane will.How big of a hoist does RCYC have on the City side? I am thinking about trailering the Olson (3800 pounds with gear) down for LYRA.
Oh, and don't forget there is more to the Lake than GTA. We are looking forward to a good regatta for EYC (Eastern Yacht Circuit (or Conference depending on who you talk to ) at Henderson Harbour in July. CORK Offshore will be fun as well, with the Olsons competing for the inaugural North Americans, and the new sportboat division. KYC is restarting a double handed race in June (singlehanded Shark). Shorthanded racing has definitely been lacking out here in the East.
My non-sailing wife wants to come to EYC for the American beer so we took a trip over last weekend and booked some rooms at one of the Inns. Pretty quiet at the club there.LORC site is up. Forum, too, although it sees very little action.
Chris Steer and Thisbe are also active on SA. There was a thread here while they were working on the GTASR&PU (RCYC replacement for the NOOD).
I am looking forward to EYC! Missed the cottage at Henderson though, too bad.
I have a Laser 28 at RCYC named Impact
Lake Ontario Anarchy - I'm in, I am from the south shore, Rochester, and it would appear that THE epicenter for alot of the LORC, LYRA and PHRF is focused on the west end of the lake. Granted there are alot of people with boats in the west end/ Metro Toronto area , but with all of the focus on the west end of the lake it seems as we are seeing less of a united sailing front and too many conflicting events as each club tries to get the regattas more boats and bring back those large and special regatta days..
If any group can unite LO sailors and bring people that have tacked away from the racing back. the days of Levels with over 450 boats, LYRA events with 100 boats are gone, oh yea and PHRF handicaps based on facts and data instead of political bullshit, can it happen?
