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!

Fremantle to Bali 2022
It is time for a revival of one of Australia's iconic races, the 1427 nm long "Fremantle to Bali" race, and it's considered to be a true test of seamanship.
Last raced in 2021 Super Maxi 100, we will do it this year in a Sun Fast 3300 which is considerably slower!

Baker Lake Ice Race 2022
Up north, it’s Winter, so time to put your skates on, but first you’ll have to airfreight them, your carbon spars, your mylar sails and your DN hull to Baker Lake, for a 109nm race, the first of 4 (3 to count) at high speed before the ice melts! Well inside the Arctic Circle, this is a cold, cold place, where the wind is rarely benign. No Performance Loss, so put your goggles on, wrap up well, and try to get round as quick as you can!

Christmas Is (Pac) to Christmas Is (Ind) 2022
Two waypoints, start and finish, and between them 5827 NM of two oceans. Not much time if we want to sit at the Christmas Eve table. You will need to maintain an average speed of over 10 knots, so prepare your Volvo70s well and choose the best of the many possible routes. Hands up everyone who knew there were TWO Christmas Islands?! OK, maybe you have sailed this Sailonline course before... but it's time to get ready for the 2022 challenge of racing between Christmas Island in the Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean! Please have fun! Fair winds!

The Three Kings Race 2022
The Three Kings Offshore Race is a 520 nm challenge, in Farr 38s, from Auckland (Orakei) up and around the Three Kings Islands and then back to Auckland finishing where you started. Manawa Islands (Three Kings) are a group of 13 uninhabited islands about 25 nm northwest of Te Rerenga Wairua aka Cape Reinga. They're also about 250nm due north of Auckland, known also as the world's best diving and fishing locations (although hopefully, you won’t be fishing too much during the race, or diving for that matter) and it is just a beautiful yet rugged place that is a must see for anyone who loves the oceans.
