Racers in the annual Lake Ontario Susan Hood Trophy Race had to deal with no wind a few hours after the Friday start where many drifted in unison under the lights of the Hamilton steel plants before getting hit by a sever storm some hours later while on the way to the mouth of the Niagara River on the south shore of the lake. Many reported sustained wind velocities over 30 knots and torrential downpours, which caused some retirements. Keith Bechard's ZOOM from RCYC, took line honors finishing shortly after 10:00am on Saturday morning, the last yacht came in safely after 9:00pm that evening.
