PHUKET: By two first-place and two second-place finishes gave Russian Arbuzov Andrev’s Ruby Tuesday victory in Racing class of the 15th Bay Regatta
.
Day four of the regatta greeted crews with clear skies and good wind as they left their anchorage off the Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort and headed to Ao Chalong for the regatta’s final party and awards ceremony at the Ao Chalong Yacht Club (ACYC).

Andrev’s fellow countryman, Nikiforov Evgenis on Gastion, came second on the strength of two seconds, a first and a third totalling eight points. Scott Duncanson’s Quantum Fusion blasted through the water on the final day winning with a day’s best time of 2:06:53, but having finished third in three earlier races ensured only third place overall in Racing class.

Cruising A class was won by Neils Degenkolw’s Phoenix on the strength of three first-place finishes and a second placing, finishing with five points overall and the best score in the regatta. Jim Ellis’ Remington came second with eight points. Richard Macfarlane’s Aida claimed third spot with eleven points, on three thirds and a second. Degenkolw’s win gives him seven Bay Regatta victories placing him one behind Mark Pescott for overall Bay Regatta wins.

Gavin Welman’s Rascal and Kevin Perran’s Rusalka tied for points with eleven each in Cruising B class. However, Rascal won on countback finishing with two firsts, a fourth and a fifth. In comparison, Rusalka had two seconds, a third and fourth place finish. Charlie Preen’s Seventh Heaven took third overall with thirteen points.

Bareboat Charter division saw Kochnev Petr’s Tonicola 2 and Kozub Sergey’s Creme Brulee (or Venture) tied with six points each as both had two first and two second-place finishes, but Tonicola 2 was awarded the overall win on countback. Paul Kendall’s Anchali was third overall with 14 points.

Multihull Class was won by Andrew Stransky’s Fantasia with two first and two second-place finishes totalling six points. Second went to David Robert’s boat DaVinci with a fourth, second and two third-place finishes for 12 points. Hans Rahmann’s Voodoo grabbed third with 15 points.
