12ft Skiff Interdominion Championship – Gemmell makes it four in a row

Nick Press and Andrew Stephenson fly the ribbons - 12ft Skiff Interdominions - Race 10 Richard Billett
The 12ft Skiff Interdominion Championship 2013 came to a dramatic finish with the first three boats crossing the finish line in a span of eight seconds. At the end, Gemmell captured the overall championship to make it four titles in a row for Nick Press.

A fitting lumpy third rig for the last race and whilst the competition was strong, the arms were getting weak. Another general recall started the day and Variety suffered under the black flag, despite their strong performance and a capsize around the last windward mark. The gate course was causing havoc for a few with Giddy Up blocking the way for a long while, but it was great for spectating as the boats could get in nice and close to the action.

A big thanks to the sponsors, Harsco Infrastructure, CG Composites, Zhik, PB Towage and as always Maerskline for container shipping. Our volunteers put in a monumental effort to ensure the event ran smoothly. The Matrix provided a great platform for spectators as well.
