16 Foot Skiff Class

Skiff sailing in Australia has a rich history and dates back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  In that time, the 16ft skiff has evolved from a relatively simple, heavy wooden boat to a sophisticated, high-performance sailing craft which reflects broader trends in sailing technology and has kept the class both challenging for sailors and exciting for spectators.

The 16ft skiff class in Brisbane boasts a history that reflects a passion for high-performance sailing, a spirit of innovation, and a strong community of sailors and enthusiasts. The class remains a vibrant part of the Brisbane Sailings Squadrons sailing culture, continuing to attract sailors who seek the thrill of fast, competitive racing.
