Welcome to the Lake Ontario Offshore Racing Website
Susan Hood Trophy Race Flag Ceremony
Due to the number of boat still on the water as the time for scheduled awards ceremony approached it was decided to postpone the awards until the “LO300 Celebrate your Race” event on the evening of Friday July 21, 2017. This is a new event we are planning with our sponsor driveHG. We will have a band and dancing plus great giveaways from many of our sponsors – not just flags. It will be the perfect time to celebrate both races, so mark it in your calendar then tell your crew and their significant others to come and celebrate.
Regarding the LOSHRS Port Dalhousie and YYC weekend races we invite you to read the current news on the LOSHRS race page. As with all LOOR events registration is high and the races are absolutely on, but there will be a course change as the water levels at YYC are very high and accommodation there will be difficult. Instead of heading to Youngstown, the weekend racing for the 17th and 18th of June, 2017, will be to Port Dalhousie. Please follow the LOSHRS link above for details.
We look forward to seeing you at the Start Line.
ANNOUNCEMENT: “We are extremely excited to welcome UCC Industries International and UCC Steelwork Connections as the Gold Sponsor for LOSHRS – the Lake Ontario Short Handed Racing Series” announced Joe Doris, Chair of Lake Ontario Offshore Racing.
