The health and safety of all guests remains our ultimate priority. The NEIGHBOURHOOD EARTH experience is built to be completely Covid-safe and to exceed government public health guidelines. Controlled visitor capacities through hourly timed sessions and 5000 square meters of floor space allow for considerably more than the recommended square meters per person, and managed visitor flow means that guests can easily respect social distancing advice.

The exhibition also meets the highest hygiene standards with hand sanitisers and daily deep cleaning. Further safety measures include contactless entry through advance ticket sales; unidirectional people flow managed throughout the event and adherence to all government regulations.

Strategy

How should I select crew?


From a skipper’s point of view, select your crew carefully. Experience tells us that it’s better to have less experienced crew you get along with than experienced crew you can’t stand. A boat becomes a small space after two or three days. Be clear with your expectations. If you are very competitive and intend to finish no matter how long it takes be sure all crew understand and agree to that. Friendships have been lost when part of a crew had different expectations than others. One of the exciting aspects of the LO300 is that it involves overnight sailing. For most of us, that means more than one overnight during the race. If you can conduct a practice overnight sail with your crew before the LO300 you’ll get a very good idea of what’s to come during the actual event. Have fun! The boats that do the best are those that focus on the joy of being on the water and working as a team.




What’s important when it comes to provisioning?


Make sure you have plenty of water and enough good food on board and that people eat and hydrate themselves. Include food that can be eaten during rough weather and while sitting on the rail. No one is happy when they are hungry.




How should first-time racers prepare?


We encourage all racers, first-timers and returning boats, to ensure they thoroughly review the Notice of Race and the Sailing Instructions on the LOOR website.

All racers should know their boat. Know where all the lines are, how to reef in the dark and which sheets tend to catch sometimes. If you don’t which point of sail your boat perform best at, figure it out before the event. It’s also recommended that they enter all the rounding mark coordinates into their on-board GPS system. Pre-programming those coordinates provides for an easier rounding in the middle of the night.

Safety is always first! It’s important you have approved PDF’s, jack-lines, harnesses and tethers, to name just a few items, to provide a safe environment and comfortable race for everyone onboard.

All participants are invited to the pre-race safety and weather briefing where you will connect with other racers and pick up valuable insight. For the Lake Ontario 300 Challenge, the race committee monitors your progress from the start to the finish through a special device from YB Tracking which is attached to your boat throughout the race. The race committee are also just a phone call away in the event you need to reach them.

Friendships have been lost when part of a crew had different expectations than others. One of the exciting aspects of the LO300 is that it involves overnight sailing. For most of us, that means more than one overnight during the race. If you can conduct a practice overnight sail with your crew before the LO300 you’ll get a very good idea of what’s to come during the actual event. Have fun! The boats that do the best are those that focus on the joy of being on the water and working as a team.




What’s important when it comes to provisioning?


Make sure you have plenty of water and enough good food on board and that people eat and hydrate themselves. Include food that can be eaten during rough weather and while sitting on the rail. No one is happy when they are hungry.




How should first-time racers prepare?


We encourage all racers, first-timers and returning boats, to ensure they thoroughly review the Notice of Race and the Sailing Instructions on the LOOR website.

All racers should know their boat. Know where all the lines are, how to reef in the dark and which sheets tend to catch sometimes. If you don’t which point of sail your boat perform best at, figure it out before the event. It’s also recommended that they enter all the rounding mark coordinates into their on-board GPS system. Pre-programming those coordinates provides for an easier rounding in the middle of the night.

Safety is always first! It’s important you have approved PDF’s, jack-lines, harnesses and tethers, to name just a few items, to provide a safe environment and comfortable race for everyone onboard.

All participants are invited to the pre-race safety and weather briefing where you will connect with other racers and pick up valuable insight. For the Lake Ontario 300 Challenge, the race committee monitors your progress from the start to the finish through a special device from YB Tracking which is attached to your boat throughout the race. The race committee are also just a phone call away in the event you need to reach them.
