Upgrade for Chester Race Week August 13-16, 2014

Chester Race Week Upgrades

Chester Race Week is bringing both sailors and race organizers important benefits through its investment in Yacht Scoring, a web-based, race management and scoring system used by some of the competitive sailing world’s top organizations including the 2013 Rolex Farr 40 World Championships, 2014 J/70 World Championships, and Charleston Race Week – the only annual keelboat race week in North America larger than Chester Race Week, based on number of competing boats.

Benefits will include:
-Real-time online scoring so anyone with a web or wifi connection can see results from the water or dock. Race result reporting will be managed by a trained specialist on the water for all race courses
-Instant, direct communication with skippers and crews before, during and after each race via convenient email notice function. Note: Email notificaton is a courtesy service. Official notices will continue to come from race committee boats via traditional flag and horn signals.
-Easier, faster online registration and payment service will reduce headaches all around
-Handy mobile web sites for smart phones via www.ChesterRaceWeek.com and www.YachtScoring.com/mobile – type “Chester” into List of Events, then bookmark the Chester Race Week 2014 results site

In addition to Yacht Scoring, Race Week sailors will also appreciate the new www.ChesterRaceWeek.com site that can handle the heavy loads of 1,200 sailors seeking race results, is tablet and smart phone compatible, and makes it easier and more intuitive for sailors to find what they need, quickly.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. 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.
