the way it should be
Battling through their skipper’s knee injury and sporting the only reefed main in the fleet in the final deciding race, Seve Jarvin, Scott Babbage, and Peter Harris took another JJ Giltinan/18 Foot Skiff World Championship this past weekend with some serious last-race heroics. Meanwhile, SA friend Cocko on Thurlow Fisher Lawyers was among the many spectacular crashes in perhaps the ultimate 18 Footers weather: 25+ knots and Sydney Harbour’s finest chop. Above is the highlight reel from the final race; you can see the full Race 7 coverage (along with the entire JJ) at the 18FootersTV.com site here. We think the Sydney TV boys do it better than almost anyone on 1/1000th the budget…check ‘em out. Title inspiration thanks to some Aboriginal rap from the Yarrabah kids.
