Going down to the wire...
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
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
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.
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
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.

Racing Calendar for the all year round racing season, held
