18ft Skiff

The 18ft Skiff is considered the ultimate skiff, and boats powered by North Sails have won events dating back at least 25 years—including the JJ Giltinan Championship, when the world’s best teams come to Sydney Harbor to compete for the most prestigious trophy in skiff sailing. We’ve updated all of our mains and jibs for 2017 to take advantage of 3Di technology, and the new models listed here have already won the 2017 Australian and JJ Giltinan Championships.
