RMSIR - New name on Raja Muda Cup - Sarab Singh Windsikher II
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
Goto AY Race Report 628th Nov 2015: Overnight the North Easterly realigned itself along the harbour, with 12 to 14 knots and blue sky, to bring a picture perfect conclusion to the regatta. One passage race for the Multihull and Cruising classes and two windward/leeward races for the IRC racers, for the final showdown. Several classes already had an outright winner, while others the possibility of toppling the leader and settling the podium places existed. Despite a solid week of racing and crews feeling the stress and strain, they were all back out on the water and ready to race. As the high noon starting horn sounded, it was on in earnest and the best day of racing on picturesque Bass Harbour was left to last. Goto AY Race Report 6 and AY Photo Gallery

By AY MultiMedia
Goto October AYGP News Summary...October 22nd: A resounding overall victory on the Audi Hong Kong to Vietnam Race from the IRC Racer 1 Class, plus second place at the China Coast Regatta, elevates Steve Manning and Anthony Root's, recently launched Ker 42 Black Baza, to the top of the AsianYachting Grand Prix with a 10 point lead over 2nd place. This is a remarkable effort for the yacht and talented crew, straight out of the box, against some very stiff competition. Anthony Root is no stranger to the AYGP, during the 13-14 AYGP, his Red Kite II was fighting it out at the season ending Samui Regatta, with Bill Bremner's Foxy Lady 6 for the title and narrowly missed out on the last race by half a point. Anthony vowed then, to return with a special IRC optimized yacht and teamed up with Steve Manning, to build the custom Jason Ker designed 42ft Black Baza, at McConaghy's yard in China and have launched a full on racing campaign, with an aim to secure the elusive AYGP Skipper & Yacht of the Year title, this season.
