“The Lake Ontario 300 has become one of the most significant races on Lake Ontario, entering its 29th edition in 2018. Having done this race many times, including the first one in 1990, I have learned something new each time. One of the most important takeaways from races like this is the value of seamanship and thoroughly enjoying your time on the water.
