After the regatta last year, the Phuket King's Cup organisers ran a survey, asking competitors what they wanted out of the event. Or in it, as the case may be. The NOR for the 2009 event is now out, and points raised last year have been taken into account. Check it out (below).

There's an Asian entry - Frank Pong's Team Jelik - in the latest RC44 regatta, on Lake Garda. Adam Minoprio will be the 'pro' on board - he's currently at the top of the WMRT leaderboard, which makes him a good man to have on side!

If you are lucky enough to be sailing mid-week - enjoy.
