AY Race Report 2


What a difference a day makes
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
Puteri Harbour, Johor (Jan 27th): After yesterdays stormy conditions, limiting racing to three flights, today the sun is out, the sky is blue and an average 8 knot North Easterly, has allowed PRO Dave Tallis and his Malaysian race team, to push on with 10 flights and catch up with the schedule. The teams responded with very aggressive starting action and intense racing tactics, to keep the umpires busy awarding several penalties, that had a direct influence on the results.

NASA Sees Weakening Tropical Cyclone Corentin’s Eye Close

NASA’s RapidScat caught one of the last looks of a wide-eyed Tropical Cyclone Corentin when it passed overhead on Jan. 23. That eye filled in with clouds and “closed” the following day and the storm began an extra-tropical transition. The Suomi NPP satellite saw a much more disorganized view of Corentin on Jan. 25.

On Jan. 23 at 9 a.m. EST, RapidScat showed sustained winds as strong as 30 meters per second (67 mph/108 kph) wrapping around the eye from northeast to southwest.
