18ft Skiff JJ Giltinan Trophy 2018

The 2018 18ft Skiff JJ Giltinan Trophy will see 26 of the best 18ft Skiff sailors battle it out on Sydney Harbour for the coveted trophy.

The Australia/New Zealand rivalry is hot as the Honda Marine team – previously known as Yamaha – return for another attempt at the title. The Kiwi team has finished second and third the last two years respectively.

The Kiwis may have won the Bledisloe Cup and the America’s Cup but there are a few Australians that will be fighting to stop them winning the JJ Giltinan.

Will the Kiwis add another trophy to their cabinet? Or will the Australians be able to hang onto it for another year?
