AY Race Report 5 & Summary

No let up on final day…
Victory for THA 72, Loco, Lady Bubbly & H30 Multihull Solutions
Black Baza crowned 2016-17 AYGP Skipper & Yacht of the Year

By AY MultiMedia
May 27th, Koh Samui, Thailand: Despite winners for three of the four classes having been decided, the entire fleet were back out on the water, to contest two windward/leeward races and complete the regatta. Overcast sky and 8 to 10 knots from the South West, did not disappoint and yet again defied the bleak weather forecast. Racing in very close quarters, it’s impossible to tell the race winners, until the number crunching takes place. Unprecedented it turned out that THA72 and Zannekin corrected out in IRC 0, with exactly the same time on the first race, as did Loco and a much improved Ramrod in IRC 1 on the same race. This sealed the deal on the overall titles and the celebrations started in grand style.

This image shows Jupiter’s south pole, as seen by NASA’s Juno spacecraft from an altitude of 32,000 miles (52,000 kilometers). The oval features are cyclones, up to 600 miles (1,000 kilometers) in diameter. Multiple images taken with the JunoCam instrument on three separate orbits were combined to show all areas in daylight, enhanced color, and stereographic projection.

Early science results from NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter portray the largest planet in our solar system as a complex, gigantic, turbulent world, with Earth-sized polar cyclones, plunging storm systems that travel deep into the heart of the gas giant, and a mammoth, lumpy magnetic field that may indicate it was generated closer to the planet’s surface than previously thought.
