is everything in the AYGP
The big movers are Max Palleschi's IOR Farr 40 Prime Factor and Alfie Rowson / Liz Schoch's Fraser 41 Astraeus. After contesting 5 events and despite low scoring at the Nongsa Neptune Regatta, Max Palleschi leap frogs Chris Mitchell's Naut 40 Lady Bubbly into 5th place. Liz Schoch adds onto her Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek result and moves from 175th place, to equal 44th place with 5 other Skippers. These are important moves, as Skippers want to finish the season higher up the order, in the race to become the 2018-19 AYGP Skipper and Yacht of the Year.
No change at the top with Ray Roberts TP52 Team Hollywood, having a 20.5 point lead over the reigning 2017-18 Champions, Fred Kinmonth/Nick Burns GTS 43 Mandrake III, but that may all change, as the racing swings over to the Eastern Circuit, where the Philippine, Hong Kong and Chinese teams have a chance to improve their rankings.
Then the Chairman’s Cup Regatta 2019 (April 26-30) replaces the Commodores’ Cup Regatta. With the 30th SEA Games coming in November, the one design FarEast 28 class are available for charter to National teams, for Match & Fleet racing, to test the waters and an ideal practice event. These events are now the 9th and 10th 2018-19 AYGP point scoring events this season. For more info Email Race Secretariat – Pen Floren Avila or visit Subic Sailing
The final two regattas are centrally located in the Gulf of Thailand and accessible to Skippers and Yachts from both the East and Western Circuits. The Top of the Gulf Regatta sailing bonanza on April 30th - May 5th, at Ocean Marina Yacht Club, Pattaya are catering for a diverse range of boat types, sizes and sailor abilities, including a Para Sailing class for the first time, using the S\V14 two-person dinghy.
Then it's across to the other side of the gulf, for the season ending Samui Regatta to celebrate their new home at Synergy Samui Resort from 25th May to 1st June and culminating in the presentation of the 2018-19 AsianYachting Grand Prix (AYGP) Skipper and Yacht of the Year awards.
