2015/16 AY Grand Prix Event

Luck of the draw on Leg 2 to Pinang
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
24th Nov 2015: Five knots of wind and three knots of adverse current in the starting area, so PRO Jerry Rollin sent the Royal Malaysian Police rib, to check the conditions around the corner of Pangkor Laut and ended up moving back to the old start line, in the passage between the two islands. As the smaller boats were slowed by the current, the start order was changed to IRC 1 and Premier Cruising, before reverting back to the reverse order.
