Scuttlebutt: Video of the Week

(February 20, 2009) The holy grail of skiff events, the JJ Giltinan International 18ft Skiff Championship, is occuring this week on Sydney Harbour in Australia. This is the 60th time for the event, where a fleet of 32 skiffs representing Australia (NSW, Western Australia and Queensland), UK, USA, New Zealand and Canada are competing for the unofficial world championship for the class. Representing North America are skippers Howie Hamlin (USA), Chad Freitas (USA), and Andrew McQuarkendale (CAN). Sailcam, an online sailing video channel, has provided a highlight reel from this very high performance arm of the sport.
