New records set, in AYGP title race...
By AY MultiMedia
Goto December AYGP News...December 12th: While Paul Winkelmann’s JV42, Island Fling is off to a flying start, in the race for the 2014-15 AYGP Skipper and Yacht of the Year awards, this has not deterred fellow competitors, from making a run at the title and setting some new records in the process. Although Bill Bremner's Mills King 40 Foxy Lady 6, nine regatta AYGP winning streak, came to an end at the King's Cup, this is a very unique record in itself. No racing team has ever won so many regattas in a row, and will be firmly etched into the record books for all to see. Despite only contesting three events, compared to Island Fling's five regattas, Bremner's FL6 holds onto second place, only 18 points of the pace and are setting their sights on successfully defending the 2014-15 AYGP title.

Goto AY Race Report 6 & SummaryKing's Cup - Viva la Phuket King's Cup...
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
06 Dec 2014: Although the winner in most classes was already decided, the battle continued with the remaining podium places in the balance and the all important 'Bragging Rights' for the rest of the year. Despite the heavy storm last night and dark clouds forming over the island, there was wind coming from the South East and after it stabilised, the PRO"s on both courses released the fleet on its merry way. Like cream always rising to the top, the leaders quickly established their supremacy and the others desperately wanting to knock them back a notch or two, before closing time. Most classes had two races to settle the score, before preparing for the Royal Awards Ceremony and prize presentation at the Kata Beach Resort & Spa and home of the Phuket King's Cup Regatta, for the last 16 years.

RMSIR ends in a storm and some carnage...
Goto AY Race Report 6 & SummaryBy AsianYachting MultiMedia
22nd Nov 2014: The day started with a mild North Easterly blowing down the harbour and ended when a storm cell ascended from the South, and swung the breeze around, then increased to 20 plus knots and pelted down with rain. On the racing course, Neil Pryde's Welbourn 52 Hi Fi lost valuable time when they became entangled with the windward mark anchor line and low and behold, Nick Burns/Fred Kinmonth's new Sydney GTS43 EFG Bank Mandrake did the same on the second round. Those unprepared when the storm hit, ended with shredded spinnakers flying horizontally from the masthead and/or trawling in the water with embarrassing red faced crew. Others that were prepared, hankered down and experienced very fast two sail reaching and invariably won their respective classes. Goto AY Race Report 6 & Summary  Goto AY Photo Gallery

China Cup - Three-way gunfight to determine winners
Goto: AY Race Report 4 & SummaryBy AsianYachting MultiMedia - CCIR Media - Sailing Intelligence
Monday, 27th October, Shenzhen, China: With Vatti Sailing (2012 winner) and Vanke Longcheer (2013 winner) tied on 11 points at the top of the leaderboard, and Beijing Sailing Center (2011 winner) just a point behind in third place, all eyes were on the crucial start sequence today. Vanke Longcheer chose the favoured pin end, with Vatti Sailing mid-line and Beijing Sailing Center, held up in the second row. As they made their way along the course, Vanke Longcheer seemed to be heading for a light patch, while Vatti Sailing were forced to tack away and dip the boat behind, while Beijing Sailing Center struggled in bad air from the yachts in front. The passage course took them out to nearby islands and back, which would ultimately determine the winner in this hotly contested class. Goto:

Goto Daily Race ReportsAudi China Coast Regatta - Final Day 3
By RHKYC Media

12 October 2014: The wind gods resumed normal service this morning with a 10-12kt north easterly across the Lamma patch, allowing RO Inge Strompf-Jepsen to set a three lap 1.3nm windward leeward for the Racer 0 boats and a two lap 1nm course for all other divisions. After an extremely close race, using both sides of the course, the first boat to cross the line was Signal 8, only five seconds ahead of Island Fling, however it was Elektra which corrected out to first in Racer 1. In Racer 2, Mojito took the gun with Whiskey Jack taking the IRC honours, and Jelik took another bullet for Racer 0, but had to settle for third on IRC behind OneSails Racing and Team Beau Geste. The next race the committee boat could only watch as Jelik stalled and then slowly picked up speed to finish with a bullet, followed closely by Team Beau Geste and OneSails Racing. Ray Roberts sealed his third China Coast Regatta title with another win on handicap. Goto Daily Race Reports Here...


CPHPR - Barmy tropics interrupts racing but persistence pays off
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
Goto AY Race Report 4 & SummaryJuly 20th: After a two days of superb sailing conditions, the South Westerly flow deserted us yesterday and racing was completely abandoned. It didn't look any better this morning and after another lengthy wait, miraculously a light South Easterly appeared on the horizon, which was just enough for PRO Simon James to get racing underway. The Multihull, Cruiser and Classics started first and were dispatched to seaward on a two island passage race. Then the IRC Racers on a short windward/ leeward course. No racing yesterday, virtually ensured the run away class leaders overall victory. It didn't have the excitement of a final race showdown but none the less everyone was keen to get going again and make the most of the last day of racing.
