the JJ, a new way
Just one more sleep until the 18 Foot Skiff World Championship – also known as Sydney Harbor’s JJ Giltinan Championship – and the ground is quaking for this one; not only are there 33 teams registered, but for the first time in the long history of the prestigious event, an all-female crew will contest the JJ! And not just one, either; the Aussies have SA’er Alexandra South at the tiller of Skiff Chicks/Lomax Financial, while Katie Love will drive the US entry Chad’s Angels. The race tracker should be live from Saturday here in the US, and we’ll be featuring video action right here on the front page of the coolest annual regatta in the world.
Get to know Alex, Saskia, and Lizzi in the video above, and check some of the earlier season action on the 18Footers TV page.
