NSW 18ft Skiffs Championship fifth race was held today, Sunday 10 March 2013, on Sydney Harbour. Gotta Love It 7 became the 2012-2013 champion when Euan McNicol (replacing regular skipper Seve Jarvin), Scott Babbage and Peter Harris took out the last race of the championship.

After trailing Pure Blonde (Tom Clout, Rob Bell, Matt Wark) by two boat lengths at the first windward mark, Gotta Love It 7 edged away to a 30s lead downwind, then from that point were never likely to lose.

Smeg (Nick Press, Dan Phillips, Dave Ewings) stayed in touch with ‘7’ over the first two laps of the NE course but couldn’t match the Giltinan champions over the final lap to go down by 2m52s.

Pure Blonde were consistent all day after their early lead and finished a further 46s back in third place.

The fleet was divided in rig choice with the NE breeze around 12-15-knots.

Results proved that the smaller number 2 rig was the correct choice.

While Gotta Love It 7 had the edge over the rest of the fleet, there was plenty of close racing throughout the fleet.

There was little between Smeg, Pure Blonde and Thurlow Fisher Lawyers for most of the journey while Lumix, De’Longhi-Rabbitohs and Yandoo were always in close contention.

The club’s regular spectator ferry will follow next Sunday’s annual Queen of the Harbour race, leaving Double Bay Wharf at 2.15pm.
