18ft Skiffs ‘Supercup’


Some of 18ft Skiffs past greatest sailors will make a return to the 18s on Friday, December 14, when the Australian 18 Footers League will stage the inaugural ‘Supercup’ on Sydney Harbour.


Among those already committed to sail in the event are several former JJ Giltinan (world) champions, past 18 footers champions Chris Nicholson, Dan Phillips, Adrienne Cahalan and Adam Beashel, as well as newcomers to the 18s, Olivia Price (Olympian) and Joe Turner (16 Footers).


Boats for each of the guest skippers will be allocated after a ‘draw from a hat’ earlier in the day, and each boat’s regular crew will sail with the guest skipper.


Guest skippers include:

Trevor Barnabas

Rob Brown

Rob Greenhalgh

Lee Knapton

David Witt

Adrienne Cahalan

Chris Nicholson

Dan Phillips

Adam Beashel

Olivia Price

Joe Turner


The racing will commence at 5pm and comprise at least two sprint races (three, if conditions permit before sundown at 8pm).


A spectator ferry will follow all the action, leaving Double Bay Public Wharf, alongside the Australian 18 Footers League clubhouse, at 4.30pm.


For those who can't make it onto the water:

Live streaming of each race is available on 18FootersTV
