Nov 14th 2018: A string of seven bullets, not only delivered a commanding victory in the ASAF Keel Boat class, for Emerson Villena and his Philippine Sailing Association - Standard Insurance Team but also became the 'Highest AYGP Scorer' at the China Cup and make their debut on the 2018-19 AsianYachting Grand Prix (AYGP) Rankings in a respectable 6th place.

Goto AYGP Yacht RankingsFour race wins in the IRC Division A2 for Tiffany Koo, would normally be enough to be tied at the top with Ray Roberts, but having only 4 yachts in the class, she has to settle on 2nd overall, while her King Mills 40 Hero Racing Team, takes over top spot in the AYGP Yacht Rankings, as Ray Roberts has raced on two different yachts.
