    Description
    This photograph of Georgie Robinson captured on the right and a younger man to the left holding a Jack Russell Terrier dog behind a vessel which could possibly be BRITANNIA.
    History18ft. skiff racing was an entertaining sport for spectators. Its origins are attributed to Mark Foy and a group of businessmen who founded the Sydney Flying Yacht Squadron, reportedly established on 19 October 1891.

    BRITANNIA and its skipper Georgie Robinson were prominent figures in 18ft. skiff racing between the two world wars.
