Another successful Neptune adventure comes to an end…
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
18:02:2018 Nongsa Point Marina, Indonesia: The North Easterly arrived on cue for the early 0800 start and the fleet enjoyed a 25nm slog back up the Riau Strait and arrived back at Nongsa Point Marina by lunch time. Then the tedious tidying up exercise, personal ablutions, downloading 1000’s of email messages and get ready for the gala prize presentation and dinner around the pool. While three of the four class winners were already decided, the podium places were open for the taking and all eyes were on the highly competitive multihull class for the final race showdown.

Round Neptune Island race
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
16:02:2018 Neptune Is, Indonesia: Fully recovered after the lay-day, all the crews were back out on the water and ready to go. PRO Jerry Rollin devised a new course, starting from West to East and basically twice around Neptune Island, in a wide arc, to the extremities of the surrounding islands. Although the North Easterly breeze has been decreasing throughout the week, 8 to 10 knot gusts sent the fleet briskly on their way. Overcoming the incoming current was the next obstacle and as the breeze turned patchy on the return leg in the lee of Neptune Island, the decision to shorten the course was met with resounding applause.
