2019/20 AY Grand Prix Event

Slow but steady start to 33rd King’s Cup
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
2nd December 2019: Although the rain interrupted the opening ceremony last night and today the overcast conditions spread a gray hue over the race course, the light 6 to 8 knot East North Easterly breeze, with slightly stronger gusts, got the racing away on time and stayed in long enough for the race officers to run two races, despite the strong tidal cross currents. As the top mark on the racing course was laid in the lee of the hill, on the entrance to Nai Harn Bay, it became a case of keeping your eyes out of the boat and staying in the wind lines, on the approaches to the mark. Some big gains and losses where observed and shuffled the class order on the two lap windward/leeward races.

By AsianYachting MultiMedia
1st December 2019: Over 70 yachts are ready to contest the 33rd edition of Asia’s biggest and most prestigious sailing regatta, in grand style. Although the main focus is split between keelboats and multihull’s during the week, the next generation of sailors are also racing in the International Dinghy classes and receiving a lot of attention. Initially dedicated to HM the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej for his passion for sailing and now in honor of His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun, sailors are expecting a week of fast and furious action. This is the one, they really want to win and already the air is full of anticipation and wild speculation, on how the racing will unfold. The 21 year longstanding spiritual home of the King’s Cup, the stylish Beyond Resort Kata, has rolled out the red carpet and welcoming sailors from all over the world.
