A Great Start to the Season!

The Lake Ontario Offshore Racing series has started and WOW what a first race!! Susan Hood herself was there to send off the 95 boat fleet who after a BBQ, participants meeting and weather briefing by Ron Bianci took to the starting line with vigor. The 3 division IRC fleet was highly competitive. Congratulations to Spitfire, Jonathan Bamberger from NYC for finishing 1st overall in IRC. The 5 division PHRF fleet was also highly contested. In the end it was Terry McLaughlin & Rod Wilmer on Mandate from RCYC that won PHRF overall and the Susan Hood Trophy. Congratulations to all of the division winners.

Not to be outdone Mother Nature greeted the LOSHRS fleet for the 1st race of the series. With winds gusting to over 30 knots the fleet was put to the test with many round ups and knock downs. Congratulations to Vladimir Melnikov from CBYC on Ariadna who won 1st place overall and all off the division winners.
