AY Race Report 4

2018/19 AY Grand Prix Event

No wind today, my love has gone away...
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
7th December 2018: A huge thunderstorm last night, caused extensive flooding and all sorts of mayhem on the roads in Phuket. Unfortunately the heavy overcast sky, carried through into the morning and interrupted the NE flow from earlier in the week, plus stifled any heating over the land, for any sign of the sea breeze forming. The fleet on both courses were left stranded and after several attempts at setting up the course were flawed, the PRO's had no alternative, other than cancel racing for the day. Meanwhile catch some of the earlier action in the AY Photo Gallery

The Overall Results stay the same and hopefully the weather forecast for tomorrow, has the NE'ly returning and lives up to expectations, with the final showdown going ahead, to finish of the regatta on a high note. That's why it's important to be ready at the start of the regatta and post some good results early, in case the wind does a disappearing act on the final days.

Not everything was lost as the dinghy's were out latter in the afternoon and continued on with their series.

Young Thai champion Panwa Boonak, won the 2018 Optimist Asian & Oceanian Championship at the Ngwe Saung Yacht Club & Resort in Myanmar, has finished first in all ten races held so far. In second place M.L. Weka Bhanubbandh is a future star in the making, and is followed by Patihan Vorrasart in third place.

Leading the Girls Optimist Class was Chalisa Krittanai, with Thorfun Boonak in second place and Suchanaree Dethhotsapol in third spot overall.

Chusit Punlamala was showing the way in the Laser Standard Class, followed by Arthit Mikhail Romanky and Chairat Dangdeemark.

Janisara Sasha Romanky leads the Laser Radial Class, followed by Sophia Gail Montgomery in second place and Voravong Rachrattanaruk third.

The leaders in the 420s, a team event, were Chanokchon Wangsuk and Piyaporn Khemkaew have maintained their lead after 11 races. In second place was Intira Parnpiboon and Paliga Poonpat, while Jedtavee Yongyuennam and Chakkaphat Wirriyakitti finished third overall.

Final day of racing for everyone tomorrow and is followed by H.E. Air Chief Marshal Chalit Pukbhasuk, the Personal Representative of His Majesty the King of Thailand, presiding over the Royal Awards and Closing Ceremony, at the stylish Beyond Resort Kata, that has been home of the Phuket King's Cup Regatta, for the last 20 years.
