Goto AY Race Report 2China Cup - Combining business with sport...
By AY MultiMedia
25th October: One may wonder, why would you hold a Sailing Forum when all the sailors are out on the water racing. In China, educating the masses, plays a big part when introducing something new and important to the community. Pleasure boating pursuits are activities that successful businessmen and upwardly mobile people in the community, are likely to undertake as a sport or leisure activity. Therefore a variety of specialist speakers were invited to the 6th Asia Sailing Culture Development Forum to present their case, to a mixed audience, mainly students from the Tourism University undertaking a study in this field. There were also some big future plans announced by CEO David Zhong on the way forward for the China Cup. Goto

By AsianYachting MultiMedia - CCIR Media - Sailing Intelligence

Goto AY Race Report 124th October: Fifty five yachts in six classes set off on the 20nm close hauled Simpson Marine Passage Race from Clearwater Bay, Hong Kong to Daya Bay, China. The 14 to 16 knot EN Easterly sent them briskly on their way and the big boats made quick work of the course. Frank Pong's Custom 75 Jelik claimed line honours by the preverbial mile and the IRC A handicap honours. The rivaly in the Beneteau First 40.7 one design class, between 2012 Champion Jono Rankine's Team Vatti and defending champion Haitao Zang's Vanke Longcheer has started again with Rankine's Team Vatti taking the upper hand by a mere 44 seconds this time around, with the 2011 champion Rick Pointons' Beijing Sailing Center slipping into third place.

Hong Kong Teams making waves in 2014-15 AYGP title race...
By AY MultiMedia - RHKYC Media
Goto End of October AYGP News October 20th: Although Karl Kwok’s all-conquering TP52 Team Beau Geste suffered their first loss in ages, at the Audi China Coast Regatta, they rebounded by taking out Line Honours, winning the IRC Racer 0 Class and smashed the previous Hong Kong to Hainan Race Record by 2h 49m 21s, setting a new benchmark time, 25h 54m 33s in the process. Boat Captain Cameron Ward was delighted, and when asked how the race had been for Team Beau Geste, he answered in a word – “Wet!”. Ward went on to elaborate: “The boat is designed for inshore racing, but we thought we’d try her out on the 380nm downwind offshore race. It was tough – none of us slept for the whole night – we just kept working, as it was the only way to stay in front of the other boats.” Summing up the race, Ward continued “a great race – fun, warm and downwind slide, so it was fantastic.” Goto End of October AYGP News

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...

By AY MultiMedia
Go to July AYGP News
23rd July 2014: A lot of discussion at the season opening Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek (Goto AY Photo Gallery), revolved around further participation at the twelve events, that make up the 2014-15 AsianYachting Grand Prix (AYGP). Quite a few of the top racing yacht owners and skippers, are planning their movements based on competing in at least six events during the season, to put themselves in the running for the AYGP Skipper and Yacht of the Year awards. Although Bill Bremner's Foxy Lady 6, won the IRC Racing Class title in fine style and kicked off their assault on the 2014-15 AYGP title, it's Roland Dane's Corby 36 Jessandra II, with five wins in a row and a run away victory in the IRC 2 Class, that opens at the top of the AYGP leaderboard. All the class winners and podium places followed suite in the 2014-15 Rankings, which can be viewed by Skipper - Yacht - Regatta - Race Dates and Scoring System. Goto July AYGP News...


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.
