AYGP – The Best of the Best in Asian waters…
By AY MultiMedia
March 20th 2019: Although regatta entries are generally on the decline and less boat owners are moving around, to compete on multiple events, the 2018-19 AsianYachting Grand Prix (AYGP) Rankings keeps rolling along. This is a unique scoring system to Asian waters, that annually grades big boat Skippers and Yachts throughout the season, into a performance based scoring system. Although the Standard Insurance Subic Bay Int. Regatta didn’t produce anyone rising to the top of the rankings, it did introduce nine new Skippers and Yachts to the pointscore and some big movements in the AYGP Rankings. With five wins under their belt, Ridgely Balladares PSA 1, dominated the Far East 28R class to become the “Highest AYGP Scorer“ at the SBC Regatta.
