 18Footer  Australian National Championship 2018  Sydney AUS  Races 1 + 2
On last Sunday, the Australian 18-Footer National Championship - the last regatta before the JJ Giltinan Trophy, the inofficial 18-Footer World Championship - began on Sydney Harbour with two races. With a 15kn breeze, racing was quite challenging and the experienced top teams dominated. 'Asko Appliances' with James Dorron AUS (ranks 1/3), and 'Yandoo' (2/2) with John Winning jr NZL are in the lead at equal points. Bad luck for 'Smeg' (Michael Coxon AUS), winner of race 1, who capsized before the start of race 2 and departed with a 7 minutes backlog. Strongly coming from behind, she finished finally on rank 7.

The Championship can be followed in the livestream window of this website every Sunday beginning at 4h a.m. UTC ... the best time for nighthawks and early birds.
