Corona Cinema – 18 Footer – JJ Giltinan Trophy 1967 – Sydney AUS

The 18-footers have been sailing their regattas on Sydney Harbour for more than 130 years, and they have always been the measure of all things in terms of sailing skills and speed. The 19-minute video of the 1967 JJ Giltinan Trophy is demonstrating the high level in these skiff races over 50 years ago. Even then, the 18-footers reached speeds exceeding 20 knots.
