The 2018 Lake Ontario 300 Challenge will be contributing more to Junior Learn to Sail programs in the GTA thanks to the generosity of Sperry Canada. Sperry, a longtime supporter of the Lake Ontario 300 Challenge, will once again be supplying Lake Ontario Offshore Racing (LOOR) with product, competitor shirts and have donated $1,200.00 to junior learn to sail, which will be used as prize money for the Team Challenge- Main Duck Island.
Pat Sturgeon Yachts remains the sponsor for the Team Challenge – Scotch Bonnet Island Course.
Since the inception of the Lake Ontario 300, portions of the race proceeds have been donated to Junior Learn to Sail as part of the Deed of Gift. The Team Challenge was created to provide an avenue to dispense funds to Junior programs at a wider range of clubs participating in the Challenge. The Team Challenge also provides an excellent inter club competition within the Lake Ontario 300 Challenge helping to determine the supreme offshore racing club.
Registration for this year’s Team Challenge Event is as easy as talking to your fellow club racers and agree to be a team.
Send an email with your team boats and team name.
Main Duck teams are 3 boat teams;
Scotch Bonnet teams are 2 boat teams.
Boats must be registered and paid for the division you are registering a team for. (i.e. white sail boats cannot be on a Main Duck Team)
Enter in as many teams from the same club as you wish.
Winning teams will be presented with the Team Challenge Trophy and will have a keeper trophy to take to their home club with their respective donations.
If your cub does not have a Junior Learn to Sail program, no worries, you can list on your entry email the club that your winnings will be used for.

LOOR and PCYC are dedicated to bringing the offshore sailboat racing experience to Lake Ontario. This is accomplished with its running of the Lake Ontario 300/600 Challenge Races (LO300/LO600), including the Solo Challenge, the Susan Hood Trophy Race (SHTR) and the Lake Ontario Short Handed Racing Series (LOSHRS) offshore sailboat races. This is augmented by LOOR’s educational series throughout the Lake Ontario basin and promotion of other activities related to offshore racing. A key focus of LOOR is the safety of offshore racing.
