Welcome to the Lake Ontario Short-handed Racing Series (LOSHRS), the largest and fastest growing racing series on the Lake.

See why our winning formula appeals to such a broad range of sailors, racing in boats of all sizes and ratings, attracting as many as 130+ entries each year:

It’s flexible.

Try just one race, for fun, or sign up for the whole series of six races to make a run at the trophies in races spread out from spring into fall.

Sunday June 4, 2017                  Course Race

June 17 and 18th, 2017             Youngstown Weekend (Two races)

Aug. 19-20, 2017                       100 Mile Race

Sept. 16 and 17th, 2017            Dalhousie Weekend (Two races)

(You can book a slip at PCYC for before the Port Dalhousie race)

It’s fun.

Whether you opt to race solo or sail double-handed, you may get to learn more about yourself and your boat over a couple of distance races than through an entire season of going around the buoys.

It’s challenging.

Test your skills in Lake Ontario’s ever-changing conditions over a series of courses that range from 20 to 100 nautical miles. Each event will bring new experiences and lessons learned.

It’s adventurous.

From lake crossings to night sailing, each race in the series offers a chance to navigate into a different corner of Lake Ontario, off the beaten path.

It’s social.

Enjoy the unique camaraderie of fellow LOSHRS sailors, on and off the water, for great post-race parties at the dock, dinner events, and a prize-filled annual banquet. Mingle with experienced sailors to share tales of thrilling race experiences.

We look forward to seeing you in 2016!
