2019 Jilàsi for Youth Regatta – September 21st, 2019


Broad Reach Foundation expresses sincere gratitude to all who made our  inaugural Jilàsi for Youth Regatta a resounding success!

Our regatta was in honour of our 20th Anniversary, the 5,000 youth we have engaged during that time, and the gift of Jilàsi, a beautifully restored Rhodes Offshore 40 that was recently donated, with great generosity, to Broad Reach by Ms. Marlys Edwardh, C.M. and Dr. Graham Turrall.

Pursuit Race

All sail boats and crew were invited to participate in fun and excitement and twelve have sailed – not bad for our first one!

On Shore Activities

After the race there was food and beverage, music with DJ, Jeff Chalmers,  silent auction, pictures, ice cream and Awards.


Two trophies were presented:

  • The Hans Marius Fogh Memorial Trophy was awarded to Mischief, skipped by Uri Sacks and crewed among others by the young and nimble Emelia who went up the mast to retrieve a lose halyard. Congratulations!
  • The Broad Reach Foundation Jilàsi for Youth Trophy was awarded by Marlys Edwrdh C. M. and Dr. Graham Turrall to the beautiful boat and crew of Catchacoma II skipped by John Lever and crewed by several Lever family members. An amazing family and most generous team. Thank you and congratulations!
