Happy New Year !


The Lake Ontario Offshore Racing Committee hope everyone had a great holiday, and we wish you all the best in 2013! Hopefully this year one of your resolutions will be to participate in more of the great racing that is happening on Lake Ontario. We will be having a number of "road shows" at various clubs this winter. These shows are designed to help you get prepared for offshore racing. Our safety committee will lead a panel discussion with some "go fast" strategies. Dates will be sent out as they are confirmed. We are pleased that a lot of our sponsors are returning for another year. Please let us know if your company is interested in getting involved with offshore racing on Lake Ontario.


Dont forget to mark your calendar with the new date for the LO300 Challenge which is on July 13, 2013. 


 Please feel free to email me if you are interested in volunteering this year
