Windsikher II defends the Raja Muda Cup
Zuhal first Malaysian team to win Jugra Cup

By AsianYachting MultiMedia
26th Nov 2016: Despite a long week on the water and some classes already decided, everyone was out for the final showdown on Bass Harbour and cast this 27th edition in pewter. Overnight a new set of courses for the cruising classes, were devised by PRO Jerry Rollin, to finish the boats before the wind dies in the afternoon. Anticipation was in the air, as crews went about their pre-start drills and the countdown began. A 10 to 12 knot North Easterly, propelled all classes briskly away and on time. All eyes were on the IRC classes and they did not disappoint, as they circulated on windward/leeward courses. Close encounters between Sarab Singh’s Welbourn 52 Windsikher II and Kevin Whitcraft’s TP52 THA 72, in front of the tightly packed “Flying 40’s”, picking wind shifts and coercing their rides along, were the orders of the day.

And the beat goes on, Langkawi Harbour races
GBy AsianYachting MultiMedia
25th Nov 2016: Although the North Easterly arrived yesterday and paved the way for a quick trip from Penang, tired and weary crews were back at it today, for the Langkawi Harbour races. The delayed 1400hrs start time came as the trade wind began to fade and change direction. The Cruising Classes headed off down the harbour, to round some islands and channel markers, while the racing classes had to endure further delays, as the course was moved to suit the wind direction. When they did start, on a course laid in front of the yacht club and ferry terminal, much to the concern of the Harbour Master, the race was held in ghosting conditions and strong tidal currents. As the afternoon wore on, the call to shorten all courses went out, much to the detriment of most the cruisers, that could not finish in the time limit.

Get Britain Out’s Autumn Statement

cgv6vy9xeaaleht-4.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Wednesday, our new Chancellor, Philip Hammond, unveiled his first (and last) Autumn Statement. For a moment, I thought he had resigned – no such luck! His announcements of doom were predicated on forecasts from so-called ‘experts’. Experts who have been proved wrong, time and time again. They were wrong about the Exchange Rate Mechanism, the Euro, the financial crisis and the immediate impact of Brexit. They have been wrong so many times throughout history – and they are wrong now.
