Asia Catamarans Raceday Three Sponsor Awards

Asia Catamarans Raceday Three Sponsor Awards

Asia Catamarans Raceday Three Sponsor Awards on Saturday were a big success as Mr. Alan Carwardine said a few words followed by Alan’s partner Mr. Roger Diggerman from Switzerland who spoke in Thai.

 Asia Catamarans Raceday 3 was another great day on the water, with the daily race report leading with the header “Australians are in charge”.

Soft but consistent, the 8 knots of wind delivered two races for the racing fleet and one for the cruisers.

Ray Roberts’ Team Hollywood (AUS) haven’t put a foot wrong, stringing together six wins on the trot and a nine point lead at the top. 

Loco (SIN) got the better of the two Sydney 40’s in Race 1 placing second ahead of East Marine Emagine (AUS), while in Race 2, the positions were switched. Loco, having now leapfrogged Rerefine (AUS) into third place overall, are two points behind East Marine Emagine. 

In IRC II the point score doesn’t reflect how close the racing has been so far. Another two wins today for Phoenix (DEN) and their lead is almost insurmountable for second-placed Sailescapes Farrgo Ladies, however, the margin between the two on corrected time is just seconds – as little as nine seconds in one race. The all-female crew are managing to keep their Farr 1104 sister-ship, Krabi Boat Lagoon Piccolo (GBR) at bay, and despite Piccolo’s win in Race 2 (by just two seconds over Phoenix!), the ladies have a comfortable lead going into the final day tomorrow.
