2010-11 AYGP ChampionshipBy AsianYachting MultiMedia
15 Dec 2010: Although Ray Roberts and Neil Pryde have resumed their battle at the top of the 2010-11 AYGP Championship, this has not deterred the other competitors from having a go at them. In fact, at the final King's Cup press conference, Ray Roberts admitted that their presence has lifted the standard of racing in the Asian region, which now includes five TP52s, to be as good as anywhere in the world. The light and changing conditions saw many place changes and the dueling duo did not have it all their own way. The Racing Class results were exceptionally close coming down to the last race on the last day and the final results saw just one point difference between Evolution Racing and Hi Fi, that also delivered an unprecedented dead heat in race six. They were just 11 seconds apart at the finish and equal on corrected time.

Despite the light conditions Frank Pong's 75’ Reichel Pugh, Jelik III managed to convert line honours into some podium places and is getting closer to claiming the double and overall title. He also realized his dream of seeing an all-Chinese team compete in the Racing Class when Olympian, Song Xia Quin took the helm of Jelik V and put in an admirable performance at the Raja Muda and King's Cup.

This maybe a cumbersome task but the one time it is needed has proven to be very valuable.

The skippers and crew will now take a well earned break for Christmas and the New Year before coming back together for the Royal Langkawi International Regatta from January 11th to 15th and the Singapore Straits Regatta from January 26th to 29th.

After four regattas under the new high scoring system, we now have twelve different skippers and yachts scoring points towards winning the 2010-11 Evolution Sails AYGP Skipper and Yacht of the Year awards. Check out the Asian Racing Calendar for the all year round racing season, held at some of the finest tropical island resorts in Asia.
