Sail-World.com : AUS v NZ in 12ft Skiff battle in Brisbane
AUS v NZ in 12ft Skiff battle in Brisbane

'Last years winners - Nick Press and Andrew Stevenson - 52nd 12ft Skiff Interdominion Championship'    Richard Billett

The Harsco Infrastructure 53rd 12ft Skiff Interdominions on Moreton Bay will be proudly hosted by the Brisbane 18 footers in January. Up to 40 skiffs from Queensland, New South Wales and New Zealand are expected to attend this year’s regatta. It will be high performance sailing at its best, with current Interdominion Champion Nick Press of Australia looking to win it three years in a row.

The world's leading access, formwork and industrial maintenance service provider, Harsco Infrastructure is proudly supporting the event.

Racing in Queensland and New South Wales has been close this season with a number of competitive crews on the water in the lead up to the event looking forward to taking on the New Zealand crews. All the skiffs will be looking forward to stretching their legs in the consistent breeze and open space of the bay in what will be a strongly contested regatta.

The trophies up for grabs include the Silasec Trophy for the overall champion, the Don Brooke Trophy for the winning Australian or New Zealand team and the Miner’s Trophy for the Underall champion, who demonstrates the most spectacular and consistent capsizing through the event.

Starting from humble beginnings, the 12ft skiff has grown and endured to become one of the last true development classes racing today. With only nine class rules limiting hull size and weight at 45kgs, sailors are free to create and race the boat that they want. The result of this is an extreme 12ft boat that regularly becomes airborne under the power of its massive spinnaker.

The racing will start on the fourth of January from the Darling Point Sailing Squadron at Manly Boat Harbour so if you are interested in checking out the skiffs, the competition or the competitors then come along!
