With a little over 90 days until the start of the third Lake Ontario 300 Solo Challenge, now is the time to start thinking about the Challenge, and preparing your boat and yourself for an all new adventure this year. So far, we have six Solo sailors signed up for this year’s race, including three returning GLSS members, two first timers, and one skipper returning to try it again.

On April 3rd 2012, the GLSS met and had their Detroit Area Spring Safety Meeting at the GLYC in St. Clair Shores MI. Forty-One sailors attended the seminar, including 15 potential first timers, who wish to try their hand at one of the GLSS events this year.

To date and in addition to the six sailors already signed up for the LO300SC, we have had inquiries Kingston, Hamilton, Bronte, Windsor/Detroit MI, and Cleveland OH. With six confirmed and seven new potential entrants by mid-April, the LO300 may well be on track for another banner year.

If you have sailed in the LOSHRS series for many years, or have done the LO300 double-handed, this could well be your next great challenge.

For more information on the GLSS requirements for first-time sailors, please go to www.solosailors.org, email LO300-GLSS Liason Brent Hughes at bhughes@ucci.ca, or give him a call at 416-984-7967 at any time.

We hope you are up to the Challenge in 2012.
