Hans Fogh was a one of the most successful competitive sailors in history, with dozens of national and international championships and in many different classes, including two Olympic medals. As a long term member of EYC, he was a big supporter of our youth sailing program and we are pleased to name our regatta after him.

The aim of this regatta, held annually in August, is to provide an opportunity for budding racers to take part in a friendly less formal introductory to competitive sailing . The event is open to members of sailing schools and clubs who are under the age of 18. In previous years we have focused on the two-handed boats used by many junior sail programs around Lake Ontario; Club 420 white sail and spinnaker, RS Feva XL and RS Feva S. In recent years, we expanded the scope of the regatta to include single-handed Laser Radials. This has proved to be a very popular event attended by over 100 participants and coaches !

For the last few years we have been very luck to have Thomas Fogh offering his services as guest coach and international race officer, Irene McNeill as principal race officer.

We strive to keep this event one of the most affordable in the youth racing calendar, this is only possible with the help of all the people who generously donated their time. If you are interested in volunteering or helping out in any way to make our regatta truly successful, we would love to hear from you at jsp@eyc.ca.

At the conclusion of the regatta we can now report a very successful event comprising 6 races on two separate courses with a 115 competitors and coaches representing all the local yacht clubs.

Below are the final official results for the 2022 Han Fogh Youth Regatta. For those who prevailed, congratulations and keep up the outstanding performance ! For those who may have performed less than expected, remember to work hard and focus on your own goals..........and get ready for next year !
