by Frank Quealey 21 Jan 21:21 PST 22 January 2023

The Andoo team of John Winning Jr, Seve Jarvin and Sam Newton officially became the 2022-23 NSW 18ft Skiff champions after today's final race of the championship was cancelled due to zero wind on Sydney Harbour.

Andoo had the series wrapped up after last week's race following the team's two wins, one second and one third placing for a total of seven points.

With no discard permitted in a four-race championship, Smeg (Michael Coxon, Ricky Bridge and Tom Anderson) finished as runner-up, on 16 points, just one ahead of Yandoo (John Winning, Fang Warren and Josh Porebski) on 17.

Shaw and Partners Financial Services (Jim Colley) was fourth on 25, followed by Lazarus (Marcus Ashley-Jones) and Birkenhead Point Marina (Kirk Mitchell).

All teams will now prepare for the Australian Championship, which will be sailed next week on Sydney Harbour
