A tradition for more than 50 years, the Susan Hood Trophy Race was witness to growing popularity of offshore racing on Lake Ontario; 75 yachts answered the call and showed up for the first overnight race of the season on the lake. As usual, the race dished out its challenging weather conditions, only it wasn't the cold in 2010 but rather, some amazing thunderstorms that kept the crews entertained. Everyone got back safe and sound to talk about the incredible display of lightning!
After a second place finish in New York City, Cape Breton Island hopes to be the first Clipper Round the World participant to win the leg into their home port; the fleet left the Hudson river earlier this week on their way to Sydney, Nova Scotia. where they are expected by the end of the week.
