Abbotsford 12' Skiff Sailing Club hosted the 85th running of the Australian 12' Skiff Championship over the recent Easter weekend. 17 skiffs entered the series with Nick Press & Andrew (Noddy) Hay, sailing 'Sail INc.' finishing clear winners, taking 5 firsts & a second from the 6 races.

Sail Inc always found an extra turn of speed when needed, their exceptional crew work & the development they have done with Steve Jackson, sailmaker from Sail Inc continues to produce the goods. While the result was a clear points win the racing was close with hard fought finishes among the top half of the fleet. Boat handling being clearly rewarded on the tight river courses.

New skiff this season 'Stiff' sailed by Cameron McDonald & Brendon Jenkins finished 2nd overall just 1 point clear of Terms & Conditions sailed by Brad Phillips & Oscar Wilson.

Handicap results saw Terms & Conditions win comfortably from Stiff & Hey Charger (Nick Bernard & Ian Terley). Jono Temple & Richard Jones sailing LCC Asia Pacific not only took away the Veterans title but miners as well with a perfectly executed nose dive.

A good result also from Glenn Farquhar (Grandad) who sailing forward hand on 'The Bird' finished 8th in his 50th consecutive year in 12 foot skiffs.

All in all a great contest
