Baza sets 2016-17
Low scoring and less yachts entering regattas this season, has resulted in 2nd placed Chris Mitchell's Naut 40 Lady Bubbly and 3rd placed Fred Kinmonth/Nick Burns GTS 43 Mandrake II having the only mathematical chance to topple Black Baza. They both have two full scoring regattas to complete their six regatta tally, from the remaining four point scoring events, HK to San Fernando Race - Commodore's Cup - Top of the Gulf and Samui Regatta.
Also having an outside chance is the Whitcraft family's all conquering TP52 THA 72 and Judes Echauz’s all Philippine crewed TP52 Centennial III, after making slow starts to the season, have comeback into contention with three regattas in hand, still can make up the deficit, if they perform with distinction, at the remaining events.
Phuket, Malaysian and Aussie based yachts that led the rankings, in the early stages, still appear on the front page but not participating at neighbouring events, has let them down gently, in the overall AYGP Rankings.
As we draw closer to the end of the 2016-17 Season, ongoing discussions of adding the 11th China Cup, to the twelve regattas, that make up the 5 star family of events on the AYGP, are reaching a successful conclusion.
This will give more sailors in the region an awareness and exposure to AYGP point scoring events and is expected to induce more Chinese boat owners, to come out and participate at other regional regattas.
The annual review of the selected events for next season is underway and we welcome any constructive comments and suggestions on the regattas and point scoring system from the participants. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
