The Brisbane 18 Footers are proud to be conducting the 2015 18ft Skiff Australian Championships on Waterloo Bay. The last Australian Championship held on Waterloo Bay was in 1986, won by Chesty Bond (Trevor Barnabas), and the last time the Brisbane 18s hosted was in 1991 on the Brisbane River (won by Prudential and skippered by Rob Brown). Let’s hope that Huey cooperates and provides some champagne conditions for the regatta.
The regatta will be held from the Darling Point Sailing Squadron, 22 Fairlead Crescent, Norfolk Point (Manly)
