Sail-World.com : 18ft Skiff fleet to don white ribbons
18ft Skiff fleet to don white ribbons

This coming Sunday, each crew in the Australian 18 Footers League’s 18ft Skiff fleet will carry white ribbons on the boats and competitors as part of ‘White Ribbon’ campaign day. ‘White Ribbon’ is an organization that works to prevent male violence against women and believes in the capacity of the individual to encourage a change in others.

The ‘White Ribbon’ annual campaign seeks to change the attitudes and behavior that leads to violence against women.

Alexandra (Alex) South, a former world and Australian champion in the Laser Radial class before joining the 18s for this season, approached the League about supporting the campaign.

President John Winning and his Australian 18 Footers League team immediately agreed and are totally supportive of the concept and the need to publicly show their support for such a worthy cause.

Alex, who skippers Lomax Financial Group, and her ‘Skiff Chicks’ team of Saskia Tidey and Lizzi Rountree, will be joined by the male competitors on Sunday to swear the oath before the 18ft Skiffs race on Sydney Harbour.

Nineteen of the world’s best skiff teams will then make a great display on the harbour as they show their support.
