RACE VENUE AND COURSE
Similar to last year LO300 Challenge organizers are adjusting the initial part of both courses for 2017, removing Gibraltar as a mark and adding a mark offshore, southeast of the start, to be left to port – and a fresh new angle to think about as you plan your race strategy.
Long Course: Main Duck Island Course is a 300 nautical mile course on Lake Ontario, starting at Port Credit, then on to the Humberview Mark, Ford Shoal Buoy, Main Duck and Yorkshire Islands, Niagara Mark, PCYC Mark and the Finish Mark.
Short Course: Scotch Bonnet Island Course is a 190 nautical mile course starting at Port Credit, then on to the driveHG.ca mark, Scotch Bonnet Island, Niagara Mark, PCYC Mark and the Finish Mark.
Complete details for both courses and course marks are available in the Sailing Instructions on the Yacht Scoring Registration and Race Document Web Site and at the Skippers’ Meeting on Friday, July 14, 2017.
