Manly 16ft Skiff Sailing Club and St George Sailing Club are increasing prize money for the 13ft and 16ft Skiff Classes and also offering generous subsidies for new and 2nd hand boats including the junior pathway classes of Flying 11s and Manly Juniors.

By breaking down the financial barriers the club is seeking to build their fleets and attract and retain sailors at all levels and age groups. If you are a weekend warrior or an International sailor, all are welcome and encouraged to put together a team to enjoy the camaraderie and action-packed racing of 16ft skiffs on Sydney Harbour and Botany Bay.

With consistent attendance on race days in-time, 16'ft Skiff Sailors will be able to go racing self-funded.
