Aussie Invasion

For the first time in many years the Aussies are back to sail against the kiwis in an 18 foot skiff regatta. From the days when the grande prix boats priced the kiwis off the water we have not seen an international 18 foot skiff regatta in New Zealand.

It gives us at the Auckland Sailing Club great pleasure to be hosting this international regatta. With 6 Australian boats coming from Australia and 6 New Zealand boats to race in this regatta from the 25th – 29th of April this is sure to be a sight to behold.

Class President Graham Catley says he is excited to have these boats coming from Australia to participate. The competition will be fierce but with the kiwis local knowledge we should see a kiwi boat out front. Spectator boats will be around for this regatta but spots are very limited. Should people wish to watch these fantastic machines on the spectator boats, I would advise them to get down to the ASC early to secure a spot. Written by Russell Davis Commodore ASC
