Sam P - back for more down under - 18ft Skiffs

10/02/2016


While the rest of us are waiting for storms to abate, maintaining, or in some cases windsurfing through this rubbish winter, Sam Pascoe (with support crew Michelle) has gone back to the country of his recent INT14 World Championship success – Australia – this time for the ‘unofficial’ Worlds in the spectacular and wild 18ft Skiffs. The JJ Giltinan trophy dates back to 1938 and takes place over 9 days on Sydney Harbour - starting this Saturday 13t, with 30 skiffs taking part.
 
 
 

Sam will be front man in one of the 3 GB boats – ‘GBR47 The Black Dog’ helmed by Jarrod Simpson (middle man Nick Murray),  re-forming the same crew that placed 2ndlast year in Lake Garda at the titled ‘World Championships’ (albeit only a few of the Aussies attending).
Should be great to follow,  so if you want to keep up – there are a few handy links and info below.
