The 2013 Lake Ontario 300 Challenge has become one of the biggest challenge ever!
This year's Lake Ontario 300 Challenge has tested the patience and perseverance of even the most die hard of racer. As of Monday morning, no boat has yet to finish on either course and the closest boats are approximately 51 nautical miles away from the finish line. Normally by this time in previous years, many of the boats on the Scotch Bonnet Island course would have finished and the lead boats on the Main Duck Island course are normally finished as well. Instead, we have had one third of the fleet withdraw and no finishers as of yet. The organizing authority is contemplating extending the staffing of the finish line pass the normal midnight on Tuesday.
Little Bird & Soggy Dollars who are competing on the Scotch Bonnet Island Course and have been head to head through out the race but with many miles still to go, it is still anyone's race.
On the Main Duck Island course, the contenders for line honours are constantly changing among Gaucho, Hot Water, Shock Therapy, Husaria and Proclivity.
Light winds are still expected until Tuesday afternoon when hopefully, the winds will pick up.
We hope racers are doing their best wind dances and Mother Nature responds accordingly. Shoreline has the chilli warm and ready for returning racers and looks forward to hearing the tales of the chasing of the wind.
