The Thurlow Fisher Lawyers 18ft Skiff team of Michael Coxon, Trent Barnabas and David O’Connor gave a wonderful exhibition on Sydney Harbour at the weekend when they took out Race 4 of the NSW Championship in an 18-25-knots South-East wind.
After trailing Gotta Love It 7 by just 3s at the first windward mark, Thurlow Fisher Lawyers grabbed the lead when Gotta Love It 7 capsized and from that point Thurlow’s crew were brilliant as they led clearly for the rest of the course. The conditions were took a heavy toll on the race as six teams failed to complete the course, while four others did not make it to the start.
