Lake Ontario Offshore RacingGeneralCongratulations to this year’s Susan Hood Trophy Race trophy winners.

Congratulations to this year’s Susan Hood Trophy Race trophy winners.

2014 will be remembered as a long slow race that was filled with many wind shifts and changes under predominantly light and variable winds.
It is fitting that a team of former Albacore racers with solid experience at the Provincial and National Championship level used their dinghy skills with a lighter yacht to win this year’s Susan Hood Trophy.
Out of Bounds is an O’Day 322 skippered by Terry Wagg and his wife Pam from Hamilton Bay Sailing Club. This is their first venture into offshore racing and from all reports was an excellent experience. Crew on board are, Mike Thomlinson, Kevin and Cheryl Soldaat & Adam Mitchell.
