Waka Tere wins SMU President's Cup
Triumph for Xtra Mile 2 in SB20 International Cup

By AsianYachting MultiMedia
Goto AY Race Report 2August 18th 2019, Raffles Marina, Singapore: At the high noon starting signal, an 8 to 10 knot SSE'ly breeze sent the combined IRC A & B classes on a short windward/leeward course, before joining the PY Class, that had already set sail on a long passage race, outside of the Western Johor Strait, contesting the SMU President's Cup. As the Multihull's don't want to race outside, they continued with 3 windward/leeward races. During the afternoon, the breeze moved to the South and picked up in strength, so the SB20 class maximised their schedule by completing 4 races of the 8 race program for the SMU International Cup, before the Malaysian Marine Police intervened and sent the fleet back to race in Singapore waters.

August 17th 2019, Raffles Marina, Singapore: Although an overcast sky, was followed by a heavy downpour in the morning, it left behind a gusty 12 to 16 knot Southerly breeze, which turned into sunny, hazy conditions for the rest of the day. This allowed the Race Officers on 4 courses, to run multiple races and get the 22nd edition off to a flying start from Day 1. At the skippers briefing, PRO Jerry Rollin issued some Special Instructions and course alterations, in case the forecast breeze came across the Western Johor Strait and paved the way for smoother operations on the water. All the skippers and crew in 14 classes, were keen to get going and put an end to all the speculation. Goto AY Race Report 1 and check out the AY Photo Gallery

By AY MultiMedia
August 7th 2019: Despite two stormy days at the start of Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek and only one race completed, the race committee made up for it on the final two days, with six races and got the 18th edition of the Asian Yachting Grand Prix (AYGP) off to a flying start. Although we earlier reported that Danish expat Niels Degenkolw's Asian crew, on his X3/4 Ton MK2 Phoenix, cleaned up the IRC 2 class, with seven wins and became the 'Highest AYGP Scorer' at the regatta, we didn't take into account, that only 4 yachts in the IRC 2 class and under the low scoring system, were reduced to 2nd place. A late charge by John Newnham's Firefly 850 Sports Twin Sharks, earned them the title and lead the 2019-20 Rankings, into the new season by three quarters of a point. Goto August AYGP News...

Goto AY Race Report 4 & SummaryJuly 21st Cape Panwa, Phuket: After all the stormy weather, an 8 to 10 knot South Westerly and slightly overcast sky, was all that remained and a great relief to the sailors and organisers alike. PRO Simon James and his race team have worked tirelessly all week, to get racing underway and managed to squeeze in three windward/leeward races for the racing classes and two for the cruisers, that constitute a series. At times the teams have experienced overpowering conditions and some of the new multihull teams are learning to tame their beasts, in the upper wind limits, but today could keep their rides under control and it shows on the results sheets.
