18ft Skiffs: Australian Championship - Race 3 - Nico returns to form    
Sun, 26 Jan 2014

18ft Skiffs: Australian Championship - The Mojo Wine 18ft Skiff team returned to form after a disappointing race last Sunday to take out Race three of the Australian Championship on Sydney Harbour today.

Chris Nicholson, Mike McKensey and Ricky Bridge finished one minute two second ahead of Thurlow Fisher Lawyers (Michael Coxon, Dave O’Connor and Trent Barnabas), with Coopers 62-Rag and Famish Hotel (Jack Macartney, Mark Kennedy and Peter Harris) just six second further back in third place.

Early leader in today’s race, Asko Appliances (Marcus Ashley-Jones) finished fourth, ahead of Lumix (Jonathan Whitty) and Fishewr and Paykel (Grant Rollerson).

With two more races still to be sailed in the championship, Thurlow Fisher Lawyers leads on seven points, followed by Asko Appliances on 12, Coopers 62-Rag and Famish Hotel 14, Lumix 16, Mojo Wine 17 and 22.

Today’s race was sailed, as part of the Australia Day Regatta, over a three-laps windward-return course in a six-eight knot SE breeze.

In such conditions you would expect few problems yet two of the highly fancied skiffs were out at the start.

Defending champion Seve Jarvin’s Gotta Love It 7 was forced out in the lead up to the start with a broken boom.


Smeg (Nick Press) was another casualty after being hit by two other competitors at the start.
