The Australian 18 Footers League's 2021-2022 18ft Skiff racing season began on Sydney Harbour today when the club staged Races 1 and 2 of the annual seven-race Spring Championship series.
For the first time this season, the winds favoured all skiffs racing ‘heavy rig’ resulting in a great race with only seconds seperating the leading skiffs. Aboard the Spectator Ferry the Balmain supporters cheered the loudest.
Showing elegance, robustness and durability the Balmain skiff placed 10 across the finish line and 7 on corrected time. We sit in overall position 12 on the NSW Championship leaderboard.
