Lawyers rule at Australian 18ft Skiff Championship

Thurlow Fisher Lawyers took another step towards defending her Australian 18ft Skiff Championship with her second all-the-way win in Race 2 of the Championship on Sydney Harbour Sunday. The Thurlow Fisher team of Michael Coxon, David O’Connor and Trent Barnabas were superb again as they powered their way to a brilliant 3m 12s win in a light SE wind. Gotta Love It 7 (Seve Jarvin, Scott Babbage, Peter Harris) were second again, just 12s ahead of Pure Blonde (Tom Clout, Jared Smith, Matt Wark). Thurlow Fisher Lawyers, with her two wins, leads the series on two points, followed by Gotta Love It 7 on 4, Pure Blonde 10 and Coopers-Rag & Famish Hotel (Jack Macartney) on 11.
