Goto Rio 2016 Olympic Sailing RoundupRio 2016 Sailing - That's a wrap
By World Sailing & Andy Rice
August 18th 2016: Over the past two weeks we've witnessed some of the world's greatest sailors compete in Rio. With full hearts and great pride we congratulate them on their achievements. Creating an Olympic Games highlight moment with impact is the mission of the Medal Race. After a series of 10 to 12 races, the top ten in each event advanced to a double-point, non-discard race. A lifetime of effort is put to the test. Who can stare down pressure and be triumphant, and who would get swallowed whole by the moment? Goto Rio 2016 Olympic Sailing Roundup & Photo Gallery...

Goto AY Race Report 4 & SummaryBy AsianYachting MultiMedia
August 20th: On the last day of racing sailors were greeted with the clearest day seen in Singapore for some time, blue sky and a 10 knot South Westerly blowing down the West Johor Strait. This enabled the Race Officers on both courses to set true windward/leeward courses and complete three races to wrap up the series. At the morning assembly the sailors were looking forward to a good day of racing, to improve their standings and complete the regatta in fine style. Goto AY Race Report 4 & Summary

Slow start to 2016-17 AsianYachting Grand Prix season
By AY MultiMedia
Goto August AYGP NewsAugust 4th 2016: Light, variable wind and strong tidal currents, resulted in only four races being completed at the 2016-17 Season opening Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek. As only two TP52's contested the top Racing Class 0, under the AYGP Scoring System, it also reduced the chances of scoring big on their first outing in anger. Consequently the winners of the classes that had five or more entries, now lead the AYGP by small margins. Three race wins for Alan Carwadine's Stealth 11.8 Asia Catamarans Hurricane in the Multihull Class and John Newnham's Twin Sharks in the Firefly 850 One-Design class has them tied on 13 points at the top of the table.

Goto AY Race Report 4CPHPRW - Wind god gives up the ghost...
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
July 24th: Despite three days of fickle weather and lengthy delays, racing still went ahead and a total of four races have been completed. The early morning drizzle and breathless conditions produced a glassy sea state today and despite the race committee searching for wind, nothing that was sailable could be found and the final day of racing had to be cancelled. Everyone thanked PRO Simon James and his team for their tireless work in difficult circumstances and the regatta organisers and friendly Cape Panwa Hotel staff for keeping the party going and producing a positive attitude. This amazing turnaround means yesterdays results will stand as final overall results. Goto AY Race Report 4 & Summary and AY Photo Gallery

AY Race Report 4 & SummaryBesar Regatta - Victory for Kaze & Shardana defends the title.
By AY MultiMedia
June 16th, Pulau Besar, Malaysia: After an hours delay waiting for the wind, the final race got underway around Pulau Besar, Tengah and Hujong to finish the three race series. The Monohull title was still undecided with Joe Lombardo's Dufour 34 Shardana and James & Hanna Sharpe's Moody 376 Southern Light tied on 4 points. While two wins for Damien Geoffray's Corsair Dash 750 Kaze earned them the Multihull title, with a day to spare. The Southerly breeze provided a short tacking duel, to the Southern tip of Besar and the favourites were in no mood to make any mistakes. The Multihull's led the way and despite the wind turning to the East on the leeward side, spinnakers were set and it was a matter of boat speed on the back straight and a lengthy slog to the windward finish line, that ultimately would determine the overall finishing order.
