Weather can change very fast around here…

July 18th Cape Panwa, Phuket: Sailors awoke to a sunny, blue sky, with small puffy white clouds and some wind during breakfast. By the time crews arrived at the beach and out to the moored boats, dark clouds were rolling across the island and before the 1000 start time, opened up with a huge tropical deluge, that lasted the rest of the morning. AP over H pennants were displayed on the start boat and ashore, indicating the boats return to their moorings and sailors to await further instructions. The race committee stayed out testing other sites and although some improvememts were on the horizon, it would take over an hour for the boats to return to the course area, by 1300 they called it a day and everyone settled in for refreshments at various locations on the island.


Some changes to the entry list after registration yesterday and unfortunately arrangements for Discover Sailing in Asia to race Ray Roberts TP52 have fallen through and now IRC Racing 0 and 1 classes will be combined and two separate results generated to keep it fair for both classes and size of boats. Further teething problems for Garry Holt and Michael Spies Seaway 25 Eastern Creek Karts, has resulted in them chartering a Platu 25 and renaming it Sydney Premier Karting Park. That makes it two Platu 25’s against Niels Degenkolw’s X3/4 Ton MK2 defending champion Phoenix and Aussie Lyn Evans on the Farr 1194 Farrgo Express, in the IRC Racing 11 class.

Weather permitting racing continues tomorrow, hopefully in better circumstances.
