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.
Main Duck Island Course is a 302-nautical mile course on Lake Ontario, starting at Port Credit, then on to the Fogh LSYC Mark, Niagara Bar Lighted Buoy 2, Main Duck Island (M9 & MM2), Ford Shoal Buoy and the Finish.
Scotch Bonnet Island Course is a 194-nautical mile course starting at Port Credit, then on to the Fogh LYSC Mark, Niagara Bar Lighted Buoy 2 Scotch Bonnet Island and the Finish.
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 10, 2020.
