18ft Skiffs Winning Appliances JJ Giltinan 2012.... Gotta Love It 7's MOB in Race 6 doesn't stop her winning yesterday's penultimate race of the JJ.
Gotta Love it. JJ Giltinan Trophy Sydney Harbour 2012.
Ian Jensen, standing in for Sam Newton, missed his trap hook up at Clark Island whilst rounding behind Michael Coxon's Thurlow Fisher Lawyers, which had Ewan McNichol in the bow filling in for the injured Trent Barnabus.
This mishap was soon overcome, with Gotta Love It 7 overtaking Thurlow Fisher Lawyers, to go away for her fifth bullet of the series.
Jonathon Whitty's Lumix finished third in front of Alex Valling's C-Tech followed byYandoo and Appliances on Line. Both Jack McCartney's Rag & Famish and Marcus Ashley Jones' Asko snapped their centreboards on the bouncy run to Clark Is. and retired.
Team Gotta Love It 7 have now wrapped up their JJ Giltinan event hat trick with one heat to sail on Sunday - hats off to them.
