Redress hearings were held this Tuesday July 23, 2013 at Port Credit Yacht Club to address multiple requests from time taken out of the race for a few reasons.

Redress was granted to the yacht Tango racing in IRC 2 for assistance they rendered after spotting a flare during the leg from Ford Shoal to Main Duck Island. After reporting the sighting to Coast Guard they were instructed to proceed to the site. Tango responded and provided assistance until Coast Guard took over. The outcome of the Search and Rescue has not been verified, but our thanks go to the skipper and crew for their providing the necessary assistance in this matter.
As a result of the redress hearing there will be 2 second place flags given out for IRC2

Boomerang, skippered by Jason Smyth sailing in the Solo Challenge was also granted redress for the time taken to stand by and provide assistance to the yachts Black Diamond and Mythos who were caught up on rocks in the False Duck Island area. After witnessing the boats in distress Jason dropped sails to return to the area and stand by until given the clear that things were OK. The Lake Ontario 300 Organizing committee would like to thank Jason for his effort in providing assistance. It takes a larger amount of effort for a Solo Sailor to take time out drop and hoist sails and get back in race. Black Diamond continued in the race and Mythos withdrew from the race and motored to Cobourg to inspect and repair. No change in the division winners resulted from this redress.

The results now posted on Yacht Scoring are final and on behalf of Lake Ontario Offshore Racing we would like to thank all our division and trophy winners for the Lake Ontario 300 Challenge 2013.

Below is a list of the trophy winners for this year’s race, which will be handed out at our September Banquet.
