Despite the light air ending, the high standards set both on and off the water have been maintained throughout. The IRC racing classes have fought a close battle, with the final results decided on the last race, on the last day. It doesn't get much better than that.
Our moment of glory, presenting the 2014-15 AYGP Skipper and Yacht of the Year title and awarding the winner with the perpetual AYGP Cup filled with champagne and the embroidered Trend Fashions navy blue blazer to take home, is one of the highlights of this regatta.
Serious contenders for the title are already making plans for the coming season. Just ask any winning skipper and they will tell you "Winning the AYGP is the hardest task any racing crews can go though in Asian waters". They have to be in top form and compete with distinction in at least 6 regattas during the season, before celebrating the proudest moment of their racing careers.
/ Race Line-up for the 2014-15 season
That makes it 5 on the East Asian Circuit (Hong Kong China, Vietnam, Philippines) and 5 in South East Asian waters (Malaysia, Phuket SW Thailand, Indonesia) finishing up with the centrally located Top of the Gulf and Samui Regatta in the Gulf of Thailand. Boat owners are not restricted to regional events and are free to compete on both circuits and in as many events they choose to contest. As the championship is open to multiple classes, the degree of difficulty has just increased to a new and extremely challenging level.
System - “Six best regattas to count”
We will continue on with our "Work in Progress" policy that has served us well for the last 12 seasons. Further tweaking is expected to take place as the season unfolds and "Awarding more points to the Overall IRC winner in Single Race events, like the Hainan and San Fernando Race" is under consideration.
