10-12 knots of breeze gusting to 15, and some spectacular competition around the southern islands of Phuket, brought to an end to the week.

Two races – a windward/leeward and an islands course – for all except the Classics was the decision by Race Officer Simon James and the fresh breeze delivered some great sailing, and surprises to the results table.

Jing Jing (Rick Pointon) went into the last day with a clear lead in IRC Racing I and IRC Overall classes, and defended gamely (and successfully) against the all-new Aquila Reichel Pugh 45 Katsu (Ben Copley) who finished in second overall. Wan Marang (Kevin Whitcraft) finished third overall in IRC Racing I.

In the Sportsboats the winner was decided on the final race, with Surf Patrol taking the series by two points with Brace! Brace!! Brace!!! in second and Longitude (Rolf Heemskerk) third.

Skandia Endeavour of Whitby (Stuart Williamson) and Phoenix (Niels Degenkolw) started the day tied on points in IRC Racing 2. Williamson scored 1, 5, but Ruby Tuesday (John Vause) snuck past with two second places today, enough to take the title by a single point. Phoenix were third overall. In the Firefly One-Design class Voodoo (Hans Rahmann) had it all wrapped up yesterday.
