The 13ft skiff has been designed as an intermediate skiff to provide a reasonably priced stepping stone between the Junior classes such as a Flying 11 and the 16ft skiff. Its purpose is to give teenagers the fun and experience needed to take the step into the 16ft skiff class.
The NSW 16ft Skiff Association administers the class and represents the eight affiliated 16ft skiff clubs in NSW, including Belmont, George’s River, Middle Harbour , Drummoyne and of course Manly. These Clubs provide professionally managed sailing programs with highly organized sailing committees with access to equipment and boats essential to a successful and safe sailing club.
The 13ft Skiff Division races every Saturday with a delayed start behind the 16ft Skiff Division throughout the sailing season. Fleet sizes fluctuate however the level of talent and enthusiasm for the class continues to grow.
