2022 PHRF-LO Chapman Championships

It wouldn’t be the first day of the Toronto International Boat Show without PHRF-Lake Ontario presenting the awards for the Chapman New Racers and the Season Championship at the AGM. We had a huge showing of support for the winners this year from clubs all around the lake.


The PHRF-LO Season Championship awards seasoned racers who participate in qualifying events from around the lake.

PHRF-LO Season Championship

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.

PHRF-LO represents 1,551 sailors from 60 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.
