    Phuket Raceweek - Six Senses Underway

    Good gusts on first day of Six Senses Phuket Raceweek

    Stuart Williamson on Skandia Endeavour of Whitby won the afternoon race in the IRC 1 class.

    PHUKET SIX SENSES RACEWEEK: Ray Roberts drew first blood in the race to become the 2009-10 Asian Yachting Grand Prix Champion.

    Racing on Evolution Sails, formerly known as Quantum Racing, he claimed first place in both races in the IRC Racing class.

    The 2008-09 winner, Neil Pryde, finished second and third on Hi Fi with Peter Ahern on Yo! 2, also securing second- and first-place finishes.

    Peter Dyers’ Madame Butterfly won the opening race in the IRC 1 section with Stuart Williamson on Skandia Endeavour of Whitby winning the afternoon race.

    Elsewhere, Andrew de Bruin on Awatea, won both races in the Charter Class.

    David Thomson on Madame Cholet and Alan Carwadine on Da Vinci Niña shared a victory apiece in the Multihull class.

    Hans Rahmanns’ Voodoo Child won both races in the Firefly 850 class, beating Moto Inzi to the line by a mere five seconds in the afternoon race.

    For Peter Dyer, skipper of Madame Butterfly, it was a good start to the regatta. “It was good. Breezes weren’t too bad – somewhere around 15 knots, with good gusts. We did a nice figure of eight course in the afternoon, which made for some very close racing. Good competitive stuff,” he said.

    Three out of three for Evolution Sails

    Three out of three for Evolution Sails

    Toshio Furutas’ Emma and Ray Roberts' Evolution Sails were the winners in their respective classes in the first race of day two of the Evason Six Senses Race Week.

    SIX SENSES PHUKET RACEWEEK, DAY 2: Ray Roberts’ boat Evolution Sails made it three out of three with a third consecutive victory in the morning race to put him in pole position in the Racing class.

    However, Roberts did not have it all his own way, as Neil Prydes’ Hi Fi broke Evolution Sails’ monopoly, to win the afternoon race. Hi Fi has yet to finish outside of the top two and the battle between these two boats could go right to the wire.

    The IRC 1 class remains wide open with two new winners on the second day. Toshio Furutas’ Emma was the surprise winner of the morning race and Niels Degenkolws’ Phoenix won the afternoon race. Flying the flag for Thailand, Jaray Tipsuk on Mitrmitri finished second in both races to remain one of five boats in contention in this highly competitive class.

    Horst Lakitss’ Big A won the only race of the day in the Club Charter Class, ahead of yesterdays’ winner, Andrew de Bruin’s Awatea. Two brand new boats are dominating the Multihull Class with Henry Kaye and Fergus Wilmers’ Thor claiming two first-place finishes, leaving them dead level with Grenville Fordhams’ brand new catamaran, Da Vinci Nina, skippered by Alan Carwadine.

    In the Firefly 850 class, Hans Rahmanns’ Voodoo Child made it four wins out of four, with Roger Kingdons’ Moto Inzi having finished in second place in all four races.
