Manly 16ft Skiff Sailing Club

The Manly 16ft Skiff Sailing Club, founded in 1922, is located in Manly, New South Wales.

The Club traces its beginnings to the 1921/22 sailing season when a number of members of the Delwood Canoe Club decided to band together and conducted sailing races on Sunday afternoons. The Club was actually formed at a meeting held on Friday 23 February 1923 and was to be known as the Manly Sailing Club.

In 1952, with the Club now only racing 16ft skiffs, the name was changed to Manly 16ft Skiff Sailing Club. The 16ft skiff class had its origins on Sydney Harbour at Balmain in 1901. To comply with the State Government requirements, the Club was incorporated as a company (limited by guarantee) in November 1972. By the end of the 2003/04 season the Club had nearly 3,900 members.
