Lincoln Crowne to sponsor 12' skiff NSW State Championship

Lincoln Crowne - 12ft Skiff NSW State Championships Brett Phillips
Lincoln Crowne & Company are sponsoring the 12ft Skiff NSW State Championships, to be held in Sydney in November and December. The announcement is a boost to a series that promises to be one of the most closely fought state championships held in recent years.

The Lincoln Crowne State Titles will be run over six heats and will double as the selection series for the Interdominion Championships. Starting up on the harbour on 26 November at the historic Lane Cove 12ft Skiff Sailing Club, the event moves up the Parramatta River at Abbotsford 12ft Skiff Sailing Club on 27 November. The following weekend on 3 and 4 December, Woollahra Sailing Club will host the final three heats.

Lincoln Crowne & Company is a trusted independent boutique corporate finance firm specialising in guiding boards of Directors and Shareholders through complex Mergers & Acquisitions & Corporate Strategy engagements. Lincoln Crowne & Company has deep experience working across Australia and South East Asia.

Current Interdominion champions Nick Press and Brad Yabsley in Dimension Polyant must be the favourite for the championships but will be pushed hard by last year's big improver Adam Forbes in D-Unit and by former NSW Champion Brett Hobson in Garde.

Executive Chairman Nicholas Assef and his team at Lincoln Crowne & Company will be cheering for another former state champion crew in Jonothan Temple and Richard Jones in the Lincoln Crowne skiff.

Nicholas has always had a great interest in Skiff sailing and was eager to support the class during the 2011/12 season. The firm has been a big supporter of the 12ft Skiff Class, having sponsored skiff 'Lincoln Crowne' for the past three seasons.

Mr. Assef believes that the agility, speed and finesse with which the skipper and his crew handle themselves on the water is a spectacle to watch, and is something he is very proud to be a part of. Lincoln Crowne & Company has also recently commenced a 16FT sponsorship, enlarging the firm's support of skiff sailing in Australia as a whole.
