We have started a new section on our website to read and download articles from magazines and newspapers about the 18-footers of yesterday.

Over time we will grow the offerings but we have a few going back to the late 40’s available now. Read about 12-foot skiffs in 1948 courtesy of John Lewis. Do you want to know about Jenny IV winning the Australian Championships in 1952.

To find the articles, go to the menu at the top of all the web pages. Select “History” and from the sub-menu, “Historic Articles”. Alternatively, follow this link.

Sometimes the text is hard to read but if you go down to the green button, and move the mouse up slightly, a toolbar will appear. There is a zoom function on the toolbar.
