Mighty Mite wins National Championship

13ft Skiff Nationals | Skiff kids turning it on at Lake Illawarra


The feeder class to the 16ft skiffs, the 13s, are enjoying what Lake Illawarra has to offer with similar breezes to the 16s including a couple of light shifty days followed by a belter of a black nor-easter.

Leading overall are Mighty Mite, showing good consistency, followed by a log jam behind them.

Arris Projects leads the next pack in second while RW Retail from Queensland is tied for third with Dimension Polyant.
