Skiff Report | 20 November 2016
The 16s had a nice Big Rig easterly that built throughout the race.
The KOFM led the pack around the first mark. As the race progressed a pack of 5 boats broke away and battled it out for the lead. The Young Guns on "TJS" led for a big portion of the race with "Insight Building", "Empty Jets", "Redicrete" and "Southern Beaches Rugby" all in the mix. "Empty Jets Led around the bottom for the last time and up the last work, in true Flano style, decided that attack was the best form of defence and went to the right side leaving the other 4 boats racing closely up the left. The "Empty Jets" tactic worked a treat and they claimed a well earned victory. "Insight" held out "Redicrete" to take the remaining podium positions. The "Enigma" took out the handicap win.
