The Australian 18 Footers League’s 2012-2013 Season fleet promises some great racing on Sydney Harbour when the 19 teams begin their campaign in the $10,000 3-Buoys Challenge on Sunday.

Several previous Giltinan and Australian Championship winners are aiming to add to their records, but they will be under pressure from a number of young teams looking to take the honours away from their more experienced rivals.

Twice Australian 16 Footer champion James Dorron (Mojo Wine) and three-times Inter-dominion 12ft Skiff champion Nick Press (Smeg) are two skippers with serious chances to add the Giltinan Championship to their already impressive records.

There will also be great interest centred on two new teams.

Malcolm Page, the Gold Medal winning 470 champion at Beijing and London Olympics, will skipper The Kitchen Maker skiff team and Alexandra South heads the rookie all-girl ‘Skiff Chicks’ team.
