Manly 16ft Club ‘Crew Swap’

Manly youth Sailors, Kids, Girlfriends, Wives, Fathers, and Mothers, you name them, they were out in Manly Cove last Saturday for the annual Manly 16ft Skiff Club “Crew Swap”.

At the end of the season the 16 and 13ft Skiff fleet invites anyone who’s keen to jump onboard and experience the joy of sailing a skiff.

Racing was fast and furious with the race committee setting 3 short races in a fresh 12-15 knot NorEaster in brilliant sunshine.

“Crew Swap” is a great opportunity for the young rising stars of the club to jump onboard the skiffs and experience the clubs premier classes.
