It's the longest fresh water race in the world and it is ON this weekend. I will be participating for the 4th consecutive years (3 completed). Stay tuned for real time tracking !

Best of luck. Looks like you'll have some decent weather, unlike last year with several squalls etc.....

Sorry, Let me correct you. The Chicago to Mackinac Race IS the longest fresh water race in the world at 333.

Twenty-one years ago the Lake Ontario Single Handed Racing Society formed the Lake Ontario 300 Challenge as the ultimate long distance race for double handed sailors. Three Hundred Nautical Miles, non-stop from one end of Lake Ontario to the other and returning back to the start. The race was an inspiration after some of the LOSHRS members raced the Chicago MAC race, which is probably why the distance was set as a length slightly longer than the MAC

So, 300 is GREATER THAN 333?

Twenty-one years ago . . . formed the Lake Ontario 300 Challenge
. . . . why the distance was set as a length slightly longer . . . .
So, 300 is GREATER THAN 333? I think we have a place for you in Washington DC too, unless the 300 is only an approximation and the real distance is 334.

I'm on the train right now to Chicago for the longest running freshwater race (Chicago-Mack), then next week I'll be doing the longest consecutive running freshwater race (Bayview's Port Huron-Mack).

Have fun, Sail Fast, and stay safe!
