National Champion History
Our record of National Champions goes back to 1932 with the only gap being the world war 2 years. Have a look at the register of champions and there are a few famous names in there. Technically Pete Burling one the Aussie Championships twice (2012/13 and 2014/15) but as a Kiwi he couldn't take out the national title, only the open championship. impressive yet embarrassing that he came over here and dominated.
Historian Member Richard Gibson has been collecting a record of Aussie sail numbers for boats registered before mid-1973, under the old national (1928-1961) and . state-based (1961-mid1973) systems. If you are trying to find some history on your boat look it up here. This is a developing list, so if you have info that is missing, please let us now.
And with input from Phil Stevo, here are some sail number records for skinny skiffs and early foilers
