|2018-19 Asian Yachting Grand Prix
AYGP Skipper & Yacht of the Year Awards
Rolling out the 17th AYGP Skipper & Yacht of the Year Awards
|Changes for the 2018-19 Season
1. After an attempt to award points to individual skippers turned sour last season, we are reverting back to the previous scoring system, of awarding the Skipper and Yacht points to multiple Skipper/Owners for the 2018-19 Season and into the future. This still allows individual Skippers to campaign more than one boat throughout the season and he or she and the yacht will score separately in the pointscore.
2. Also reverting back to the 12 regatta/race lineup, 5 on the East Asian Circuit (Hong Kong, China, Philippines) and 5 in South East Asian waters (Malaysia, Phuket SW Thailand, Indonesia) finishing up with the centrally located Top of the Gulf and Samui Regatta in the Gulf of Thailand. This covers all regions and gives skippers at least one event in home waters.
3. The Best 6 results will count for the overall title and the leaders are expected to compete at the season ending Samui Regatta, if they expect to be crowned the 2018-19 AYGP Skipper & Yacht of the Year
Regatta / Race Line-up for the season
Boat owners are not restricted to regional events and are free to compete on both circuits and in as many events, they choose to contest. As the AYGP Ranking is open to all classes, the degree of difficulty has increased to a new and extremely challenging level and opens the possibility of top performing multihull and cruising class yachts to claim the title.
Pointscoring System – “Six best regattas to count”
Best 6 results to count for the overall Championship
