King’s Cup doesn’t get much better than this…
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
5th December 2018: A stark difference from yesterday, when the weather forecast looked very promising, but didn’t live up to expectations. Today the forecasted NE trade wind decided different and sent 15 to 20 knots throughout the morning and into the afternoon. Enabling PRO’s on both courses to try the passage races, along the West coast, up to Patong and back for the Cruisers, Multihull’s, Premier Cruisers and IRC 2 classes. The IRC 0 & 1, plus the one-design Firefly 850 classes managed to get in three windward/leeward races before calling it a day. Dare I use the ole cliche but these conditions are classic King’s Cup champagne sailing conditions, like the good old days. Catch some of the action in the AY Photo Gallery
