The 2024 Australian Skeeta and Nikki Cup was not short on excitement as the Skeeta and Nikki community congregated at BYRA Sailing Club on Sydney’s Pittwater.

We welcomed Skeetas and Nikkis from around Australia for some training, coaching and racing. 

Although we had very light weather, we had a low riders race which BYRA commodore Leah came away with the win in the Skeetas in a tough and closely contested race. I think we have another Skeeta convert!

Young gun jumps straight into Skeeta

In between racing, current IQ Foil youth sailor and 13ft Skiff champion Orlando showcased his talents and light wind foiling ability by pulling off gybes with barely anytime spent in the Skeeta.

It was magic to see, and gave our new Skeeta sailors of juniors an achievable view of what they can do in the Skeeta & Nikki.

Once again showcasing how easy the Skeeta is to jump into and foil – which makes it the most versatile foiler in the market. Foiling faster and for more people!

Sailors around Sydney were also invited to come and try foiling Skeeta and Nikki. 

Oodles of junior sailors from a range of junior classes including Opti’s and O’pen Skiffs were in the boat park, eagerly awaiting their chance to try out Nikki. Juniors as light as 28kgs got up foiling in the light conditions and came away with a huge grin on their faces after they reluctantly jumped off the boats. 

Even sailing around in low riding mode, the juniors on Nikki were very quick, mixing it up with the Skeetas in the racing. Having so many juniors of varying abilities, shows Nikki is the perfect platform to get them into foiling and to keep them excited and inspired to keep sailing for longer.

Introducing the Stoke Foil Boost

This was also the first time that the Stoke Foil Boost had been showcased at an event and has proven to work perfectly in the light breezes, getting everyone who tried it up and foiling in what would otherwise we non-foiling conditions when tested.
