December first at the Boulevard Club was a special evening to launch a more formal drive to build and take the first step in establishing the Hans Fogh Foundation to support, foster and grow youth and youth development sailing in Ontario and Canada. Using only the interest generated from the fund, reliance on government or uncertain funding will be reduced.

It was not only a special night to celebrate the legacy of Hans Fogh, but also to listen to the spell-binding words of Canada’s legendary sports broadcaster, Brian Williams. With much arm twisting, due to his incredibly jam-packed schedule, Brian was convinced to be the guest speaker by the Pope of Sailing, Paul Henderson. There aren’t many things that these two men agree on except one key passion: the promotion and support of Canada’s athletes!

Brian held the audience captivated with his inside stories about athletes that he has covered over the span of 14 Olympic Games in his career. His key to success: Be prepared, no matter what, as it pays off in sport and life.

To donate online to the Hans Fogh Fund visit: and select “Ontario Sailing Programs” from the drop-down menu.

Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
