Lake Ontario 300 Challenge J Boats
The Lake Ontario 300 Challenge always provides a challenging circumnavigation of Lake Ontario. Co-hosted by Oakville Yacht Squadron and the Port Credit Yacht Club. Teams have the option of two courses, the Main Duck Island course of 300nm and the shorter Scotch Bonnet Island course of 190nm. Both courses start and finish at Port Credit YC.

On the longer MDI course it was John McLeod’s J/133 Hot Water sail a fantastic race to take IRC Overall honors. Not far behind on handicap time was Murray Gainer’s J/109 Lively in fourth place (a past overall winner of the race).

In PHRF A division, Mike Pietz’s J/35 Shorthanded grabbed the top honors followed by Graham Toms’s J/120 The Cat Came Back in third place, Bob Hesse’s J/111 Lake Effect in fifth place, Geoff Clarke’s J/105 Casual Elegance in sixth, then Geoff Roulet’s J/35 Jeannie in seventh and Paul-Angus Bark’s J/35 Crime Scene.

In the Scotch Bonnet Race, the PHRF 'white sail' class saw Bonnie Reib’s J/33 Daybreak sail a beautiful race to take second and Leszek Siek’s J/35 Jaeger finish third.
