By AY MultiMedia
February 9th 2017: After scoring a whooping 15 points at the Neptune Regatta, Chris Mitchell's Naut 40 Lady Bubbly moves from 7th place, up into 2nd place in the AYGP Rankings. They are now only 6 points adrift from the leader, Anthony Root/Steve Manning's Ker Custom 42 Black Baza, with a regatta in hand over them. High scoring at the Raja Muda and Neptune Regatta have shown that it's possible to win the AYGP from the Cruising class, if they are prepared to compete in at least six events during the season. Lady Bubbly will be contesting the Top of the Gulf and season ending Samui Regatta, to for fill their six event compliment. High scoring will put them, well within reach of AYGP Skipper and Yacht of the Year titles.

Anthony Root/Steve Manning's Ker Custom 42 Black Baza and 3rd placed Fred Kinmonth/Nick Burns GTS 43 Mandrake II will be contesting these events and expected to fight over the lead, before the racing swings over to the Gulf of Thailand.

If they continue on, its like having a drop race, and will only be able increase in small increments, better than their previous results. This will give the others a chance to catch up and overtake them, on the remaining five events this season.
