18ft Skiffs

Skipper Marcus Ashley Jones and Team Asko had to split the atom to get their 18ft skiff across the finish line in Heat 3 NSW State Championships, on Sunday.

Asko showed amazing commitment to make it across the line given their approach maneuver.

They were in the tide for long periods and had to tough it out for a second place.

The Podium was Rag & Famish Hotel (1) , Asko (2), and Smeg (3)
