2010-11 AYGP Championship
January 2011 - AYGP Update

2010-11 AYGP Championship Going down to the wire...
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
19 Jan 2011:
Although we have only just crossed the half way point of the 2010-11 season, Ray Roberts and Neil Pryde have taken such a commanding lead in the AYGP Championship that it is almost mathematically beyond the reach of the other contestants. Roberts has won three and placed second at one event to sit on 19 points. Pryde has won one and placed second at three events to trail Roberts by two points. The next closest skipper is Sam Chan's TP52 Freefire and Frank Pong's Reichel Pugh 75 Jelik III tied on six points and trailing the leading duo by 13 points. They will have to win at least three of the remaining four regattas and the leaders not score any points for them to get back into the running. This is not likely to happen as they are likely to only contest two of the remaining four regatta's. So once again it comes down to the dueling duo but which one will come out on top? All the regattas they have contested have been extremely close and gone down to the final race.

2011 RLIR AY Photo GalleryTake note major change from 18 Jan 2011
This season the best seven results out of the ten regattas were supposed to count towards the
AYGP Championship. As the Vietnam Race was cancelled and the dates of the Commodore's Cup and Top of the Gulf are overlapping, making it impossible for yachts to compete at both events, we have decided to count the best six regatta results instead of seven. So it is On On into the season and may the best crew win...

Next up is the Singapore Straits Regatta from January 26th to 29th. Check out the Asian Racing Calendar for the all year round racing season, held at some of the finest tropical island resorts in Asia.

After five regattas under the new high scoring system, we now have thirteen different skippers and yachts scoring points towards winning the 2010-11 Evolution Sails AYGP Skipper and Yacht of the Year awards.

Subic to Boracay Race to include Boracay Cup
