Scuttlebutt: Video of the Week

(November 12, 2010) The days are getting shorter and colder in the northern hemisphere, which means the 18 footers are back in season on Sydney Harbour in Australia.

Since the birth of 18 footers on Sydney Harbour in the early 1890s, large spectator fleets have followed the speed, the thrills and the spills of the crazy racing machines they call "The Flying 18s" - "Formula One on Water".

Thanks to The Flying 18s online magazine, a series of video programs has been launched to provide the ins and outs of this sector of sailing. And if the excitement of 18 foot skiff sailing wasn't enough, their inaugural segment is hosted by the delightful Nicky Cameron.
