Curtain comes down on successful Round Hainan Regatta
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
29:03:2013 – An unprecedented heavy downpour severely affected both IRC fleets from racing down the East coast of Hainan on the final day. The IRC 1 Classes contesting Stage 2 of the Round Hainan Race from Haikou to Sanya was shortened and the IRC 2 Classes did not even get started, as the storm left a vacuum in its path at the Shimei Bay International Marina Club in Wanning. After the Haikou start the yachts had to beat their way around the top of the island and down the East coast which finally gave Wang Lei’s Swan 82 You Bao a chance to stretch their legs and show their pedigree by taking the daily double at the third way point. The IRC 2 Racers were deprived of the chance to improve their standings and yesterdays tally will stand as the final overall results, as they faced a 100nm motor back to Sanya.
