18ft Skiff 2022 JJ Giltinan Championship Day 3 - Racing cancelled due to gales on Sydney Harbour

by Frank Quealey 7 Mar 23:08 PST 5-13 March 2022

The Race Committee for the 2022 JJ Giltinan 18ft Skiff Championship were forced to abandon Race 3 due to the gale force conditions being experienced on Sydney Harbour today.

One of the committee said that when the team were setting the start line they believed conditions were sailable but later the southerly winds were averaging 28 knots, with gusts up to 35 knots.

A decision will now have to be made regarding the upcoming race dates in the championship.

2022 JJ Giltinan Championship Race Dates:

  • March 9 - Races 5 & 6, A.J. Reynolds Trophy
  • March 10 - Race 7, Bill Miller Memorial Trophy
  • March 12 - Race 8, Big Kite Memorial Trophy
  • March 13 - Race 9

Spectators can follow the racing on board the spectator ferry. Booking online through the club's website www.18footers.com is essential.
