Lake Ontario 300 Challenge

Winner of Fully Crewed Class

There have been a variety of courses used, all at least 300 nautical miles (approximately 335 land miles) straight line distance (Course Diagram). Since yachts cannot sail directly into the wind, and because the competitors will choose different courses between marks as they search for better winds, some yachts could sail as much as 400 miles and take 4 days or more to complete the race. An example of this is seen in the plot of the yacht "WINDRIVEN" which won the Fully Crewed Class in 2001 with an elapsed time of 2days, 18hrs, and 31minutes. The last yacht to finish that race had an elapsed time of 3days, 10hrs, and 39minutes.

The Lake Ontario 300 Challenge is organized jointly by the Oakville Yacht Squadron and the Port Credit Yacht Club.
