Niagara2Toronto cross the lake paddleboard race

August 17 - August 18

The Lake Ontario Crossing is a 32-mile paddleboard race from Port Dalhousie in Ontario’s Niagara region, to Toronto.
The 32 mile, point-to-point course matches the standard established by the Molokai-to-Oahu crossing in Hawaii and the Catalina Classic in California, bringing an open-water endurance race to the Great Lakes.
Make no mistake. Although this is a fresh-water event, a Lake Ontario crossing is a big and exposed paddle not to be taken lightly. At the mid point of the crossing, paddlers are 20km from land and without cell phone coverage for three hours. Weather on the Great Lakes is highly variable, often changing from calm winds to gale-force conditions in minutes. Six-foot swells are common in the autumn months. We aim for this to be a down winder as it has been in the past but who knows what mother nature will provide
