54th Australian Cherub Championship - Videos (Mon 9 January 2017)

 

The Cherub class is doing well here in Australia, with over 40 boats turning out for the titles. Cherubs are designed to allow innovation and at a min hull weight of 51 kgs a fair bit lighter than its contemporaries. The class has a great fun and slightly anarchistic (read Skiff) culture. They are sailed by mostly young crews 16 – 30 yrs old, but some older guys and ladies are still engaged.

Great work from Ollie Hartas, who when he isn’t sailing his Cherub, 18 foot skiff or otherwise, is a videographer specialising in sailing vids.
