Congratulations to the 2023-24 season National Champions - Greg Patterson and Yianni Foufas from St George Sailing Club, NSW on their red and white speedster 972 - What Now.

That makes it back-to-back titles for Greg and Yianni, and Greg's third National Championship win.

Runners-up were Steve Hudson and Bodhi De Freitas from East Fremantle Yacht Club, Western Australia, on 945 - End of the Road, with Brett Fannon and Cam Fannon from also from East Fremantle on 984 - Last Crack - finishing third.

Top quality boat preparation and the experience of the leading crews meant spectators were treated to close racing every day in the challenging Swan River summer conditions.

A big thank you to the sailing officials and volunteers from East Fremantle Yacht Club, and the series sponsors, for making the 65th Skate National Championship a series to remember.

The full set of Results and Race Reports are available on the Skate Sailing Australia website and Facebook page.
