Oh . . . so . . . close!

The 16ft Skiff NSW State Championships were decided over the weekend with racing on Botany Bay and our B16ftSC crew on TJS Services (Henry M, Israel S & Grant M) finished in 2nd place - on a count back!!

The boys finished on equal points after a drop with current Australian Champions, Brydens Lawyers, only to be relegated to second as Brydens had won two heats. The TJS boys carried three 2nd places - not a bad scorecard!

They did however romp away with the 16ft Skiff Junior State Champions crown - a title they were defending from 2014-15. Congratulations TJS on fantastic sailing and excellent results!

Our next B16ftSC boat was ATB Morton (Danny A, Brett D & Mat W) in 4th place. The top 4 boats were separated by only 3 points - awesome close racing!

East Coast Marine & Sail (Ben B, Troy D & Dave H) carried a 7th, 3rd & 3rd to place 5th overall, with EmptyJets.com.au (Rob F, Dallas D & Will M) posting consistent results to finish in 6th. KOFM 102.9 (Joel R, Kyle M & Trent M) rounded out the Top 10 for Belmont finishing in 8th overall.

Overall handicap results are being finalised so keep an eye on the Assocaition webpage for the full final results.

Congratulations to our B16ftSC Skiffs on the great racing!
