In what was always going to be a classic 18ft Skiff race with everything on display in a testing 25 knot plus Southerly course 4 ...
Yandoo skippered by John Woody Winning was taken to hospital after being body slammed in a capsize. The Manly Ferry was the biggest obstacle for Gotta Luv it 7 when locked in spinnaker combat with Smeg on the first run to Obelisk Bay. Trevor Barnabus and his team on Smeg were outstanding the way they attacked this race and were unlucky at the end given a broken tiller in their monumental spin out while leading Cocko's TFL.
