12ft Skiff Interdominion: Kiwis fight back in Teams Trophy

'12ft Skiff Interdominions - Race 1'    Sue Debrosses    Click Here to view large photo


Races two and three of the 12ft Skiff Intrdominions, being sailed on Waterloo Bay, Brisbane, pushed the 12ft skiffies to the limits of their skill and endurance. A 15-20 knot forecast and rain squalls made the rig choice difficult, but most went second and it turned out to the be the right choice, at least for part of the day.


Race two was won by Gemmell Sails, second C-tech Performance and third Garde. A rain squall on the way to the start continued as the skiffs battled up the first work. The wind started dying down the first run as the skiffs negotiated the downwind gate and all came together at the dual bottom marks. Gemmell started in front and was never headed, extending to a three minute lead by the finish. Garde and PB Towage had a good battle, with Garde getting the edge. The softening breeze and leftover chop was making things difficult both up and downwind.

Race three was won by C-tech/Little Bus, second Gemmell Sails and third C-tech Performance. The breeze settled into a nice second rig and the speed of the racing picked up. The first work and run was extremely close with bunches of boats coming together at the first gate and bottom marks. Plenty of yelling and chaos meant getting a clean line shot you out in front of the pack. Once again, C-tech/Little Bus and Gemmell Sails were inseparable, with only two seconds splitting them at the finish, this time with C-tech Performance only seven seconds adrift. It doesn’t getting tighter than that! The 12ft skiff spectacle was in full flight with at least five big spectator boats crowding the course, getting an eyeful of the best action on Waterloo Bay.

Miners was won by Chris Reid and Ben DeFluiter for a bit of pre start submarine action and also forgetting to tie the head of the kite to the halyard.

Spinners was won by the local Brisbane favourite, Brad Madders for a bit of time in the clink the night before and waking up in an unknown suburb.
