Skipper, my Skipper, we flew together through thick and thin, sleet, heat, and an awesome A fleet.. To share your cockpit is to splendor in the joy of the sail. Your trust in us, your crew, lead us to glory after glory, whether we placed or not. You are a Skipper for the ages…and no matter where you are: Will you please get a #2 for the sake of your grinders. Thank you Sue for sharing him with us. And a special thanks for Catherine for your kindness and devotion to Feather. An era has pass. And Phil would want us just to carry on. To go out there and fetch the next mark. And we will, dear Skipper, we will. Ready about, hard to lea…

Phil you are the founding force and spirit of sailing in Hampton Roads and Chesapeake Bay. Each of us know the kind ,warm and generous spirit that you engender in every human being you met..The sailing world probablly doesnt know the full impact you had on Southern Bay sailing. You personally stabilized and grew CCV in its infancy. You created races when none existed; you mentored ALL OF US and we are all deeply grateful. THE HYC BAR HAS FOREVER LOST A STOOL..SO IT GOES. nameste my friend. bouchard/ganar/bumps.

I knew Phil from afar, normally with "Feather" in front. He was always smiling, upbeat and in the hands of great friends. Always a good sport, and lived and sailed an incredible life. Farewell Phil, you will be remembered long into the future at the Hampton Yacht Club.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Sail on, sail on, sailor. Phil always wished us "good luck, but not too much" when sailing against him. By "good luck" I think he meant good luck trying to beat me. Greatly Missed by me and all our crew. Leroi/Voodoo 2

Phil was a great friend and competitor. Level headed and always great to have a discussion with. He was on the water not as a fair weather sailor but stuck it out in rain and sleat late November just to finish the Frostbite series. He leaves a huge hole in our club and large shoes to fill. We dearly miss you Phil your MIRAGE / MYRAGE crew
