Sail-World.com : Asian YOG Qualifier day 4
Asian YOG Qualifier day 4

'Asian YOG Qualifier 2009'    Byte Class

On day four of the Asian YOG Qualifier, strong winds averaging 15 knots with gusts of up to 20 knots were the order of the day and Thailand showed its home ground advantage by taking two out of the three races held today.

Thailand local hero, Keerati Bualong, sailed a perfect race to clinch the first position. Darren Choy SIN, finished second followed by Terence Choo SIN. Overnight joint leader, Nathan Tang SIN, was disqualified under the Black Flag for being across the start line too early.

Race 12 - Winds strengthened for this race and Keerati proved that he is the man to beat in the regatta. He sailed perfectly to obtain yet another win. Chai Xun SIN finished second and compatriot Terence Choo finished third.

Race 13 - The current Byte CII Champion, Darren Choy SIN, held off the strong challenge from Thailand's Natthawut Peanyaem to clinch the win for Race 13, while Terence Choo SIN completed a hat-trick on the day placing third in all three races.

Going into the final day of racing, Keerati tops the standing and is six points clear ahead of second placed Darren Choy SIN.

A mere five points separate fifth placed Nattawut Peanyum THA and Choy.

More than enough races have been sailed to constitute a Championship but, if at least two more are sailed, a third drop race will be allowed which will more than likely affect the final standings. It is proving to be a very exciting finale.
