Inception of PHRF-LO

In December 1979, 12 yacht clubs along the south shore of Lake Ontario gathered to discuss area wide PHRF ratings to facilitate their inter-club racing. Thus laying the foundations of PHRF Lake Ontario.

Since that time, PHRF-LO has grown to include over 60 yacht clubs, over 100 Club Handicappers and over 1600 active certificate holders.

Over the past 2 decades, hundreds of dedicated volunteers have spent many hours of their own time developing the PHRF-LO system and have helped issue yacht racing handicaps to over 4000 owners around the lake.
