The Brisbane 18 Footers are hosting the 2018 Historical 10ft Skiff Australian Championship 5-7 May 2018. The skiffs are replicas of the early 1900s, varnished timber hull and spars, gaff rigged, 3 crew. The event is being held from Brisbane Sailing Squadron, Quay St, Bulimba. Races will be held on Bulimba and Hamilton Reaches of the Brisbane River.

We've used this image quite a bit on our website over the years, taken by Peter Burgess from Sydney in Heat 3 of the 2012 Australian Championships here on the River. Literally a few seconds later, Avro was ragging the spinnaker to avoid going down the mine and well overpowered. Over half the fleet did not finish this race having suffered capsizes or broken gear. L'il Imp 3 broke their gaff but managed to limp home.

We've seen plenty of close racing on the River over the years, 2009 was a "light" year which produced some close racing like this. Photo by Paul Vivian (RIP).
