and ladders in the AYGP
The withdrawal of Sarab Singh's Welbourn 52 Windsikher II and significant damage in the Multihull Class, to Alan Carwadine's Stealth 11.8 Asia Catamarans Hurricane left the door open for Mick Tilden's Pulse 600 Pixalux /Java and the Malaysian Armed Forces Farr 520 Zuhal skippered by Mohd Masyuri to outscore them and push their way up the rankings.
Two scoring regattas for Chris Mitchell's Naut 40 Lady Bubbly, with an outstanding performance at the Raja Muda Regatta, leaves them in fourth overall from the Cruising Class. Two events on different multihull's, brings Neil Ayre into contention with 8th place.
Despite the exceptional performances by the class winners, Kevin Whitcraft's TP52 THA 72, Yasuo Nanamori's Beneteau 40.7 Karasu, Ithinai Yingsiri's X55 Pine-Pacific, Andrew Hurford's Phantom V, CPO.1 Wiwat Poonpat and the Royal Thai Navy 1 domination of the Platu One-Design class, it is their first scoring regatta this season and make an appearance in the top 20.
It's a different story in the AYGP Yacht Rankings, as some yachts are chartered by different skippers at regattas and the skippers score individual points, while the yacht accumulates the score in the Yacht Rankings. Both Fujin and Popeye have competed on three events with different skippers and varying results, to slot into 4th and 5th places respectively, in the Yacht of the Year pointscore.
Next up is the Royal Langkawi Int. Regatta (Jan 9th - 14th) and Neptune Regatta (Jan 28th - Feb 4th) and a great opportunity for sailors to ring in the New Year! Competition is stiff in all classes and overall results will have a bearing on the AYGP Skipper and Yacht of the Year titles, for the rest of the season.
