Ready for the JJ

Racing was cancelled at the final 18ft SKiff Championships race before the JJ Giltinan Trophy

A lack of wind forced officials to abandon race six of the Australian 18ft Skiff Championship on Sydney Harbour today.

Under the sailing instructions for the regatta each skiff will count her best four placings from the five races sailed and consequently the points after last Sunday’s race five will stand as the final placings.

Seve Jarvin, Sam Newton and Robert Bell had already won the championship (regardless of race six) in Gotta Love It 7 with a total of six points, followed by Fiat (Michael Coxon, Aaron Links and Nathan Ellis) on 11 points and defending champion Macquarie Real Estate (Micah Lane, Jack Macartney and Drewe Waller) third on 14 points.

Friday (8 February) will see the fleet line up for a Twilight Race, followed by another race in the Club Championship on Sunday (10 February).

These will give all crews a final opportunity to tune up for the Giltinan International Championship, which starts on Sydney Harbour on Friday 15 February.


1-Gotta Love It 7, Seve Jarvin
2-Fiat, Michael Coxon
3-Macquarie Real Estate, Micah Lane
4-Rag & Famish Hotel, John Harris
5-Club Marine, Adam Beashel
6-Omega Smeg, Trevor Barnabas
