Lake Ontario Offshore Racing 2024

Sailonline is delighted to once again have the honour of partnering Lake Ontario Offshore Racing (LOOR), in offering virtual sailors the opportunity to compete in two of their popular annual Lake Ontario races. 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.

As is becoming a tradition, Sailonline’s yacht of choice will be a Beneteau First 36.7 for both races of the virtual mini-series:

(1) Susan Hood Trophy Race (Friday, May 31): 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 (Saturday, July 13): A 300nm figure-eight circumnavigation of Lake Ontario. Since 1990, the LO300 has been a main event for offshore racing on the Great Lakes. As probably the longest freshwater race in the world, the course reaches the Niagara River, the gateway to the St.Lawrence Seaway at Main Duck Island in the Thousand Islands, and makes 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, and entries are free-of-charge, so be sure to start practicing early and to tell your fellow LOOR members, friends and family, as soon as each race opens!

Prerace the question was which way to go. West or East around Mellum. After the start the second guessing began, was it wrong to be East or West, should the other way have been taken. As our eventual winner mentioned it was going to depend on the Wx mid race and which route it would favour. The question was answered as the Wx updated and it favoured the East route boats and importantly provided a lift to the finish.

As described in the reports events unfolded and the result was the East boats finished P1 and P2, however, by milliseconds Mirek pulled out a P3 as the first boat to finish from those initially going West. The tricky bit as described in the reports for the West boats was when to tack, which Mirek did first. Time for a break before the June sprint in Greenland.

Hegura to Anchorage 2024 - RESULTS

Race Leaderboard



This race proved to be remarkably swift, thanks to a combination of a fast boat and favorable weather conditions. The fist stretch, to Cape Oma, was not that fast, but the frontrunners managed to reach the weather system in the pacific just in time. The main fleet managed to connect with the advantageous low-pressure system, following it all the way from Hokkaido along the Kuril Islands and then along the Aleutian Islands.

The fleet remained concentrated as they navigated this stretch. The average speed of the podium finishers was an impressive 746 nautical miles per day, with a peak of 830 nautical miles in 24 hours. This translates to an average speed of 31 knots and a top speed of over 37 knots.

Ninety-one competitors started at the sound of the gun, followed by 36 latecomers. At the time of writing, 109 boats have crossed the finish line. The shortest route sailed was 3212 nautical miles, which resulted in a 59th place finish. The longest route covered 3986 nautical miles, completed by the last finisher, who placed 109th.

CA 500 2024

In 2019, the organisers of the California Race Week introduced a new longer distance event for the world’s very largest maxi trimarans in town that year intent on setting new records for the TransPac Ocean Race on its 50th anniversary. This CA 500, 500nm from San Francisco to San Diego, was repeated in 2023, but this year it will be an online only event, as it is a lot more straightforward to get a fleet of Maxi trimarans out on the virtual water, than in real life.

Neumayer Station to Biscoe Wharf 2024

It’s Autumn now in Antarctica, the sun is permanently below the horizon, but during the day, from c 0900 to c 1700 local time, there is some twilight – nautical twilight, not to be confused with civil twilight which is brighter. The penguins are starting to huddle together to keep warm and the sea ice is growing. Time to get back to Biscoe Wharf then, before the water becomes impassible. Including a detour past Argentina’s main two Antarctic stations, it’s only 1900nm, so, although we’ll be in a hurry, we will take the bigger, better ice-classed Paratii 2 once more, just to be sure!

Melbourne to Osaka Prelude 2024

Welcome once again to what these days is Sailonline’s almost annual virtual Melbourne to Osaka Yacht Race. In real life, this double-handed 5500 nm race between these two sister cities, one deep in the southern hemisphere, the other high in the northern hemisphere, is run every four to five years, and is planned to be held again in 2025, so this race is a Prelude in partnership with the Melbourne Osaka Cup 2025 organising committee collaborating with the Ocean Racing Club of Victoria (ORCV), and the Sandringham (SYC) and Osaka Hokko (OHYC) yacht clubs. On this occasion, we’ll be racing the well-known First 40, a popular size of boat for a long-distance double-handed race. With the doldrums unavoidably lying across the track, you can expect to be at virtual sea for at least a month!
