The JJ Giltinan International 2013 resumed racing on Tuesday with Race three played out on a picture perfect Sydney Harbour NE Course yesterday. Gotta Luv it 7 dominated from the start as its crewmen Seve Jarvin, Scott Babbage, and Peter Harris charged to Bradleys Head and held the perfect lane to cross the fleet on port tack and never put a foot wrong to the finish.

Rag and Famish Hotel, Jack McCartney, Sharko Kennedy, and David Witt kept the 7 Skiff honest throughout and at times closed it right up, especially on the downhill run to Clark Is. Rag, always looking for an opportunity to attack the leader.

The battle for third on the podium had Lumix, Jono Wittey, C- Tech (NZ) Alex Vallings, Appliances on Line, Mica Lane and UK's Pica pushing hard to the finish. Appliances on Line eventually got the better of that group and took third for their score card.

The disappointment award went to Thurlow Fisher Lawyers after playing catch up on the first beat, and pulling into the leaders at the Shark Island wing mark, broke the bobstays on their bow pole which immediately forced their retirement.

Pick the Podium. We had 23 entries go into the hat all with two correct, and out came Sue Tucker from the UK.

Congratulations Sue, you win the cool Barzoptics San Juan Floater Sunnies with the Bragging Rights forRace three and you go into the JJ major prize draw next Sunday with Tina Babbage, Adam Young and Graeme Tumber.
