Brydens Compensation Lawyers sailed by Lee Knapton, Peter Mackie and Ricky Bridge from Georges River Club in Sydney are the 2010-2011 Australian 16ft Skiff Champions.

The 2010-11 Australian 16ft Skiff Championship was sailed on Waterloo Bay at Manly in Brisbane between 2 – 9th January 2011.

The win was the narrowest margin for a number of years. Close point scores and consistent racing between 'Brydens Compensation Lawyers' and 'Fluid Building Services' saw the championship come down to the final race.

The final race saw Waterloo Bay dish out some of the harshest weather conditions experienced during more recent regattas. 25 knot winds, big swells, poor visibility and heavy rain made the last race a nail biter for spectators, as each work became a battle for survival.

The 16ft Skiff National Title win was a first for sheethand Peter Mackie and for bowman Ricky Bridge. The win was the fourth for skipper Lee Knapton.

Brydens Compensation Lawyers finished on 13 points, with defending Champions, 'Fluid Building Services', sailed by Clint Bowen, Anthony King and Brent Dennis from the Manly Club in Sydney and the current NSW State Champion, finishing as runner up on 14 points.

Third place went to 'Fire Stopping', sailed by James Dorron also from the Manly Club. Fourth place went to Beijing 2008 Olympian Nathan Wilmont from Middle Harbour Club on 'Hubble Cleaning Products'.
