Three out of three for Evolution Sails

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.
