2006-07 AsianYachting Grand Prix Championships


Final Result still in doubt…
Although Bill Bremner’s Sydney 40 Foxy Lady III is presently leading the overall Koh Samui Regatta 07 Racing Class by posting two wins on the board, the battle for the prestigious annual 2006-07 AsianYachting Grand Prix Championships is heating up between Neil Pryde’s Farr 52OD Hi Fi and Frank Pong’s 75ft Rachel Pugh Jelik. Coming into the final event of the season both boats were tied on six points. Frank’s Jelik started with a win and has since scored 3, 5, 2 and Neil’s Hi Fi 4, 2, 2 plus a resounding win yesterday sees them two points in front with the possibility of three races to come. If a drop race is included at this stage the margin is reduced to a mere one point. On five points coming into this regatta the Fred Kinmonth and Nick Burns owned Farr/Mills 51 Mandrake has dropped out of contention with a scoreline of 3, 7, 4, 4 which includes a race 2 disqualification that maybe reopened but they will find it hard to come back from here.
