A beautiful day out on Mai Khao on Race Day 1! The day began with nice northeast winds, however, due to a few maintenance issues on the yachts, race time was pushed back to 12:15 pm with wind wrapping around toward the west.
S/Y Intrigue kicked things off by crossing the start line 2 seconds early, causing them to have to restart – incidentally at the opposite end of S/Y Aphrodite and S/Y La Numero Uno, giving them a big advantage with wind direction. By the first mark, S/Y Intrigue was half a leg in front of the others, by the second mark more than a leg ahead and by the third mark had lapped S/Y La Numero Uno for the win.
Race Day 2 aims to be just as exciting and will see the implementation of a handicap.
Race Day 1 standings:
- 1st – S/Y Intrigue
- 2nd – S/Y Aphrodite
- 3rd – S/Y La Numero Uno
