It was a Night of Stars as the sailors and volunteers of Manly 16Ft Skiff celebrated the season and winners of the Club Championships in the Centenary Year.

It has been a memorable year at the club and it was only fitting that the annual presentation night was a formal event and the guests were walked the red carpet before the winners were honoured. New Club Commodore Malcolm Page presented the championship awards.
