2016/17 AY Grand Prix Event

Return to classic King’s Cup conditions…
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
6th December 2017: Despite the weather forecast predicting the brisk morning breeze to slow down, this was not the case, as crews made their way out to the race course. By start time 18 to 20 knots, tending from the East South East, with the highest gusts reaching 26 knots, produced some fast and furious racing. Two coastal races for the cruising classes and up to three windward/leeward races for the racing classes, that made it through the day. Ultimately the damage rate increased and many retirements with broken equipment, one dismasting and bruised egos were recorded, which brings the regatta to a conclusion for the irrepairable cases. With the lay day looming tomorrow, a well earned rest for some, while others will be making hurried repairs to continue through to Saturday. For those that can remember back to the early King’s Cup’s, and the Andaman Sea Race from Phi Phi to Nai Harn, will describe today’s conditions as classic.
