Russell Frazer

OCC Award - 2022

Twenty years ago, in early 2002, Russell Frazer ran the Big Fish Net crossing the Atlantic from the Canaries to the Caribbean. In more recent times, Russell and Lynne Frazer, s/v Blue Highway, run the annual OCC NE USA SSB Net. In years prior to 2013, Russell was an occasional Net Controller and since 2014 he has organised the net annually (with the exception of Covid year 2020) bringing together cruisers between New York and Nova Scotia on a daily schedule. This Net has always been open to non-OCC members and has been responsible for many joining the Club. The Net operates daily except Sundays at 0700 local time (1100Z) on 6227 kHz USB switching later to 4036 kHz USB.
