18 foot skiffs on Sydney harbour – 127 years of sailing history!

Get amongst the action of the Australian 18 Foot Skiff’s racing on Sydney Harbour every Sunday from the 13th of October. A truly unique way to spend a Sunday afternoon on the worlds best Harbour cruising on the heritage 1939 Rosman ferry “Proclaim”.

18 foot skiffs are fast and furious, combing extreme speeds with highly skilled sailors to make for some of the best spectacles in modern sailing. A fleet of 20 boats, each containing a crew of three elite sailors, fly around the harbour to the spectacular backdrop of Sydney city.

Viewed from the comfort of the ferry, whilst sipping on a beverage from the licensed bar, you can take in all the spills and thrills while listening to expert and fun commentary. Spectators have always contributed to the success of the iconic 18 footers with every age group enjoying the day out. Plenty of seating and tables available, along with on board toilet facilities, it is a safe bet that your whole family will enjoy watching the race. Whether you are a local or a tourist this experience delivers quintessential Sydney in comfort and style.

The club’s spectator ferry will follow all the action, leaving the Double Bay Public Wharf, alongside the clubhouse and rigging area, at 2pm for a 2 hour trip.
