Australian 18ft Skiff League Club Championship 2013. Gotta Love It 7 made a clean sweep of the 2012-2013 Season championships when she took out the final race and the Australian 18 Footers League Club Championship on Sydney Harbour today.

There was quite a reshuffle on the boat, with regular skipper Seve Jarvin moving to bow today with regular forward hand crewman Peter Harris missing from the team, World Moth champion Josh McKnight joined the Gotta Love It 7 crew for the race as sheet hand.

The skiff’s regular sheet hand Scott Babbage, who was defeated in the World Moth Championship by McKnight, skippered Gotta Love It 7 to an all the way victory today.

Gotta Love It 7 grabbed the lead soon after the start in the 8-12-knot NE wind and took out the race by 2m57s from Appliancesonline.com.au (John Sweeny, Paul Montague, Tom Anderson).

It was a lead ‘7’ never looked likely to lose, but the race for the next six placings remained in doubt throughout.

Today’s race produced a first in the 120 years old class when three generations of one family comprised the entire crew of an 18 Footer.
