The NYC Open - August 13, 2016
The NYC Open Regatta is back with a splash on the LORC schedule and is proud to be part of the inaugural year of the Volvo Sailing Series Program!  As part of this program, Volvo will generously provide incredible prizes and rewards:
  • The winning skipper from each fleet will receive a Helly Hansen Jacket with the Volvo Sailing Series 2016 Event Winner logo and the winning crew will receive vests with the same logo
  • All participants will receive:
- Volvo Ocean Race Swag
- A chance to win a Volvo Ocean Race Prize package valued at $250
- A Helly Hansen 50L Duffel Bag for test driving a new Volvo within 45 days of the event
- A Volvo Accessory Purchase Reward.
Be sure to visit to share your photos and learn more about this national program.
The NYC Open will have it all - the 2016 IRC Lake Ontario Championship, One Design and PHRF racing. This is an IRC intro event so anyone who would like to race in a spinnaker division will receive an IRC rating at no charge for this event.

The 2016 IRC Lake Ontario Championship will feature three divisions for the closest racing possible. Please come out and experience the greatest racing to be had under the IRC measurement rule. 

One Design fleets will need a minimum of six boats for a start; alternatively these boats will be welcomed into one of the IRC divisions. 

There will also be a PHRF white sails division (minimum crew of two people) to encourage everyone to come out and race!
On Saturday after racing, return to NYC and visit the Volvo/Helly Hansen tent where there's a Volvo cap for every racer; pick up a skipper's bag; place a bid at the silent auction in support of The Dorothy Ley Hospice; stay for the BBQ dinner (starting at 5:00 pm), awards presentation with great prizes and give aways. Tim Horton's swag will be out in full force!
Looking for a second day of racing? Come out on Sunday and join the Argosy Rose Bowl distance race - the final race in the IRC Offshore Series and also part of the AHMEN series. What a great weekend - course racing and distance racing back-to-back!
All competitors are invited to dock at NYC on Friday and Saturday night.

The event sponsors including Volvo Canada, Helly Hansen, Tim Horton's, Redpath, Celtrade, Genco, Evolution Sails, North Sails, Fogh Marine, Harken, Station Ski & Ride, Westport Marine Supply and Stiegl Radler have really gone all out to help make this an exciting event!
See you on August 13, 2016 for the NYC Open and on August 14, 2016 for the Argosy Rose Bowl.
This is certainly a weekend you won't want to miss!
