1st Overall New Racer1st Overall 2019 PHRF-LO Chapman New Racer Award Mike Fuessel of Apache, Cobourg Yacht Club presented by Brian Thomson, Chief Handicapper and Mike Campbell President of PHRF-LO.

The snow storm on the first day of the Toronto International Boat Show last month didn’t prevent sailors from as far away as Albany NY, attending PHRF-Lake Ontario’s presentation of the awards for the Chapman New Racers and the Season Championship at its AGM.

PHRF-LO represents 1,446 sailors from 58 member clubs racing on Lake Ontario, Lake Nipissing, Lake Simcoe, Georgian Bay and, the Ottawa River. Each member club submits their race results at the end of the season to the PHRF-LO office for computational analysis. The actual performance of every boat compared to their handicap is the foundation of the annual handicap review of boat classes undertaken by the PHRF-LO Central Council of Handicappers.

The PHRF-LO New Racer Award is for novice racing sailors to encourage them to participate in as many races as they choose and continue their involvement in competitive sailing. Named for Brian Chapman, a long time Technical Adviser to the Central Council of PHRF-LO. His advice was integral in efforts to create and maintain fairness and encourage racing across PHRF-LO waters.

The PHRF-LO Chapman New Racer Award winners for 2019 were:

KingstonBy Amy Hogue

Cruise into the city of Kingston, Ontario, and it will quickly become clear that this city and surrounding waterways have something special. Built around the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Kingston is the place to go if you love to explore new waterways, fantastic views, and exceptional boating opportunities.

Sitting at the intersection of three world-class Canadian bodies of water, Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal (Cataraqui River from Kingston to Newboro), the water’s influence is deeply woven into Kingston’s culture and history.
