Yo!2 finds Raceweek plain sailing | Thaiger

AO CHALONG: Peter Ahern’s crew aboard Yo2! have maintained their lead in the IRC 1 class of this year’s Six Senses Phuket Raceweek with two more wins today, leaving them with four wins from four races so far in the series.

Other provisional results posted this afternoon show that Ben Copely’s Swan 42 Katsu, racing in her first Raceweek regatta, scored a second and a third place today to move into second place overall in the series.

John Vause and his crew on Ruby Tuesday moved into third place overall in the class after scoring a third and a second place in today’s two races.

Niels Degenkolw on Phoenix now leads the IRC 2 class, ahead of Peter Dyer’s Madame Butterfly in second place and Mick Kealy on Evason Phuket Minx in third place.

Henry Kaye on Mamba moved into first place overall in the Firefly 850 class, with Roger Kingdon’s Moto Inzi in second place and Peter Dyer’s SEA Property in third place.

After just two days of racing, Phuket’s own Andrew de Bruin on Awatea has established a remarkable lead in the Club Charter class. He leads the class on four points, with his nearest rival Simone in second place on 14 points.

In other classes, Bob Brindley on Phuket-based X Cat Riot leads the Racing Multihull class ahead of Mark Horwood on Charro and Neil Ayre on Shanghai Baby.
