2017-18 Asian Yachting Grand Prix
Skipper & Yacht of the Year Awards
This unique partnership have successfully run yachting campaigns over the past 20 years and scored in all 16 AYGP seasons to date, on four different yachts. Mostly finishing in the top order, with three runner up places and now topping it off with victory on their finest year, is acknowledgement of their outstanding achievements and honours their special sailing partnership. They are also the first team in the all inclusive class era, to go down in history, for winning six point scoring regattas in one season.

The main aim of the AYGP Ranking system has always been, to rank Boat Owners and Skippers, ability to organise and run a racing campaign, through Asian waters during the season. As a result, we have decided to revert to awarding the Skipper and Yacht points to multiple Skipper/Owners for the 2017-18 Season and into the future.
2. As China is rapidly becoming a sailing nation and if the AYGP Rankings, are to be truly representative of the East Asian region, we welcome the China Cup International Regatta (CCIR) into the family of regattas, as the sixth event on the Eastern Circuit and expanding the AYGP to 13 regatta/races. Over 100 extra skippers and yachts will be added to the rankings and become aware of other regattas in the region and what the AYGP Ranking is about. It may also encourage Chinese boat owners to come out and participate at other regional events.
3. There have also been some small changes to the AYGP Scoring System. On Single Races, the Bonus Points for winning the class, has been reduced from 5 to 3 and the 3 added Bonus points for 1st Overall under IRC, has been reduced to 2, making 15 points the maximum a skipper and yacht can score, if they won the class and overall awards. The Best 6 results will still count for the overall title and the leaders are expected to compete at the season ending Samui Regatta, if they expect to be crowned the 2017-18 AYGP Skipper & Yacht of the Year
/ Race Line-up for the season
That makes it 6 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 AYGP Ranking is open to all classes, the degree of difficulty has increased to a new and extremely challenging level.
