    Youth Riders Wanted! 18' Skiff Demo Rides coming in August!


    If you are young and willing, you could being doing something like this in August!


    If you are a kid, 10 and over and have the desire to take a ride on one the fastest sailing craft on the planet, your ship has sailed in! On Saturday , August 20th, teams from the Aussie 18’s International Regatta at the the StFYC in San Francisco Bay will be hosting demo rides on the skiffs for interested youth sailors who would like to check out and experience the thrill of these awesome go-fast machines.

    Event coordinator David Gibson is heading up the event, has been doing similar rides for youths in Sydney Harbor for quite some times and notes:

    “The idea to encourage any kid to take this type of racing is important for the future of the USA scene so any thing we can do to help would be good.”

    Each ride would be probably around 10-20 minutes dependent on conditions and numbers. Wetsuits and life jackets are required, and if you have a harness, you may even spend some time on the wire. The event is tentatively scheduled to begin at 11:00 AM at the east end of Crissy Field. You can contact David at davids_gibson@tnt.com.au for more details!
