Convincing win for Smeg at the NSW 18ft Skiff Championship

A reunited crew of Chris Nicholson, Ricky Bridge and Mike McKensey scored a convincing win with Smeg in Race 2 of the NSW 18ft Skiff Championship on Sydney Harbour.

Following three weeks of strong winds, which has affected the racing, Sunday’s ESE wind allowed most teams to carry their bigger #1 rigs and produced some very close racing in the leading group.

The young Noakes Youth team of Ash Rooklyn, Rhys Mara and Justin Mulkearns again showed theie potential with a strong second placing.

Third today went to Line 7 (Jonathan Whitty, Aron Everett, Greg Dixon), which was a further 49s behind Noakes Youth.

After battling in the top group all throughout the race, John Winning’s Yandoo finished fourth.

They were followed by early leader Coopers 62-Rag & Famish Hotel (Jack Macartney) and Asko Appliances (Micah Lane).
