All hands back on deck at Samui Regatta

May 30th, Koh Samui, Thailand: After the lay day to relax and regroup, all the crews were back out on the water for the penultimate day of racing. As the North Westerly breeze is still hanging in, PRO Ross Chisholm decided on a short windward/leeward race for crews to reacclimatize themselves, before embarking on a 32nm passage race, across to Ko Phangan, then around Ko Tae Nok before returning through the Samui Strait and back to the finish line. The boats that enjoy long asymmetric spinnaker rides finally got enough wind to answer their prayers. They certainly aren’t here to play games or make up the numbers, its serious business out there, with 20 teams including four highly fancied 52 footers that every regatta would like to have competing plus eight evenly matched “Flying 40’s” battling it out around the course. Today is make or break day and the leading contenders want to drive home their advantage.
Poyang is just one of the many project areas of the collaborative Chinese-European Dragon Programme, which marked its ten-year anniversary this week.
