9th December 2017: After blowing the birds out of the trees all week, the North Easterly finally gave up the ghost and left the fleet floating around on a glassy seaway, with Race Officers scanning the horizon for wind ripples to appear. Two hours went by before PRO Ross Chisholm found some consistency from the ESE breeze on the Southern Course A and went into the starting sequence. No such luck on the Northern Course B and after four hours waiting around, PRO Simon James sent the cruising fleet home without a start. The leaders of various cruising classes rejoiced without even lifting a finger, while the racing classes battled it out on one short windward/leeward course, with some detrimental effects on the overall results.

PEESSS IN OUR TIME – thanks to this deal the EUSSR can PEESSS all over Britain whenever it pleases

Today is a momentous day in the Brexit negotiations. Very early this morning, Theresa May and David Davis travelled to Brussels to meet with Donald Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker for the UK Government and the European Commission to reach an agreement on Phase 1 of the Brexit talks. An early morning tweet of an image of white smoke from EU official Martin Selmayr, was a sure sign of progress – but is it all good news for Brexit?

Tax reform moves one step closer and other things you need to know

The Senate GOP passed its tax reform bill in an early vote last Saturday. Jenny Beth said, “Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund and our nationwide network of more than 3 million supporters commend the Senate for passing a tax reform bill. We appreciate the Senate included repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate as a first step toward full repeal of Obamacare and it is critical that the provision is included in the final bill. We will be watching the conference between the House and Senate and will do everything we can to ensure the final bill that is sent to President Trump will lead to a simpler, flatter, and fairer tax system for all Americans.”

Change in wind strength, changes the order…
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
8th December 2017: As the troublesome low pressure system closes on the Indian coast, it’s all change in its wake. The heavy storm deluge overnight in Phuket, heralded the arrival of the true North East monsoon trade wind. Clear blue sky, with 6 knots at start time, increased to 14 by the end of racing and provided a great day of racing. All the Cruising classes embarked on a Southern island race, while the racers concentrated on windward/ leeward races to break the deadlock and set out their stalls, before tomorrows final showdown. The lighter conditions produced a few upsets and some changes in the order, that suited heavy weather sailors earlier in the week. Capture some of the action in the AY Photo Gallery
