The start to race 6 of the JJ Giltinan today was scheduled one hour later as usual, but the competition has even been more delayed by three general recalls, obviously hardly avoidable in the very light breeze and the popply water. That's why the race is still underway at press deadline (6 hrs UTC). In difficult conditions with almost no wind and cross waves caused by the intensive weekend boat traffic on Sydney Harbour, it was ‚Mojo Wines' with Lee Knapton AUS rounding mark 1 as first. The overall leader ‚Gotta love it 7' was on 4th with the first persuer group, a perfect position to consolidate the overall lead and the path to the 6th Giltinan title.
