FAST AND FURIOUS INTERNATIONAL SKIFF RACING ON SYDNEY HARBOUR
18 Footers on Sydney Harbour combines extreme speeds with an element of danger and is one of the biggest spectacles in modern sailing.
Racing is contested every Sunday (October to March) during summer over specially designed courses to provide spectators with fast, action packed excitement as the fastest skiffs in the world race around beautiful Sydney Harbour.
Watch the incredible athletic skills of many of the world’s greatest sailors, as they battle the elements to keep their flighty, carbon racing machines upright, under the huge sails and spinnakers, while avoiding the variety of power craft traffic on a busy harbour.
You can get a front row seat at the “Flying 18s Show” by joining the crowd on the Australian 18 Footers League’s spectator ferry, which leaves Double Bay Public Wharf, just minutes before every race. Click the link on the website to get your Ferry Tickets.
