No change on a new day: Ruby Tuesday still leads the Bay Regatta



PHUKET: Sailors departed from the waters off Paradise Koh Yao Boutique Resort & Spa yesterday for the 2012 Bay Regatta’s second day of racing.

Heading south towards Krabi, competitors navigated through the limestone karsts of Phang Nga Bay, en route to their destination of Ao Nang, where a rest from partying awaited, for a few.

Day two Racing Class results saw the top three finishers repeat their placings of day one, with Ruby Tuesday taking first on corrected time. Gusev Boris’ Gastion and Scott Duncanson’s Quantum Fusion again finished second and third respectively.

Standings after two days are the same with Ruby Tuesday now leading with two points, Gastion in second with four, and Quantum Fusion in third with six points. Gastion was the quickest boat across the water on day two, finishing in a time of 3:47:02.

The seven-boat Bareboat Charter division was won by Sergey Kozub’s Creme Brulee (or Venture) with Petr Kochnevs Tonicola 2 finishing second and Daniel Brandenburger’s Fei Mao taking third for the second straight day. The overall standings remain the same going into day three with Creme Brulee leading on two points, Tonicola 2 in second with four, and Fei Mao on six points in third place.

The 13-boat Multihull Class was won by Andrew Stransky’s Fantasia with the Bruce Issel skippered DaVinci coming in second and Fergus Wilmer and Henry Kaye’s Sweet Chariot placing third. Overall, Fantasia leads with three points, and Miss Saigon and DaVinci are tied for second with six points.

Kevin Gillow’s Poco took first in the eight-boat Cruising B action with Gavin Welmans Rascal coming second and Kevin Perrans Rusalka placing third. After two days, Rascal leads the class with three points; Rusalka is in second with seven points and Poco sits in third with eight points.

Bay Regatta fact: The third most common language spoken at this year’s regatta, after English and Thai, is Russian as there are five Russian entries: Ruby Tuesday, Gastion and Ocean Agassi (all in the Racing Class), Creme Brulee (in Bareboat Charter) and Uminoko (in Cruising A).

The principal sponsor of The Bay Regatta is Da Vinci Yacht Charters.

The Phuket Gazette and PGTV are also sponsors of the event.
