Sail-World.com : Phuket King's Cup 2012 Windsurfing update – Day 5

Phuket King's Cup 2012 Windsurfing update – Day 5

The Phuket King's Cup Regatta windsurfing event came to a close today on His Majesty the King of Thailand's birthday, with three races (7, 8 and 9) back-to-back of Kata Beach. Strong winds gusting to 22knots delivered an exciting finale to what has been a great windsurfing series.

Hong Kong’s Chun Leung Michael Cheng showed his class to be crowned overall winner and winner of the Phantom 295 Men Class, with Natthaphong Phonoppharat (THA) second overall, followed by Hei Man Chan (HKG), Gabriel Brettell (HKG), Ek Boonsawad (THA) and Pornanan Payungkasem. Congratulations to Chun Leung Michael Cheng and all other riders who came from around the world to join the windsurfing event.

Phantom 295 Men Class
Chun Leung Michael Cheng came first in all three races on the day and is the winner of the Phantom 295 Men Class, with Natthaphong Phonoppharat (THA) the first runner-up and Gabriel Brettell (HKG) the second runner-up.

Phantom 295 Women Class
Spain’s Marina Alabau Neira, who narrowly led after the sixth race, did not complete the seventh race resulting in her finishing behind Hong Kong's Hei Man Chan. Hei Man Chan (HKG) is hence the winner in the Phantom 295 Women Class, followed by Marina Alabau Neira (ESP) and Siriporn Kaewduang-Ngam (THA). Congratulations to Hei Man Chan for some fantastic sailing.

Phantom 295 Youth Men Class
The final day also saw some exciting races in the Phantom 295 Youth Men Class, with Marcos Guedez from Martinique emerging as the winner. Thailand's Sirichai Phusiri came second and Robert York from the UK finished third.

Phantom 295 Youth Women Class
Emma Labourne from the UK had an excellent final day, scoring first in all three races. Despite three wins, Labourne finished third overall with Blanca Alabau Neira (ESP) in first, and Oda Skaug from Norway, second. The Thai Youth Women sailors competed hard, but could not complete all the races in the challenging conditions.

Overall results and results by class, are available at http://www.kingscup.com/index.cfm?ntid=1223.

After five amazing days on beautiful Kata Beach, competitors and support staff are to get together for a big beach clean-up and give back and help ensure that Thailand's natural treasures are preserved for future generations. As the beach clean-up is part of the side programme prepared by Starboard, this is a good opportunity to thank Starboard's team on the spot (Tiesda You, Sacha Albarda, Remi Vila, Antoine Lefebvre, Nicolay Egeberg and Fabian McGovern) for their great performance and their stunning gammut of games and activities! Also, many thanks to Starboard, and especially its owner Svein Rasmussen, for providing all the Phantom boards and rigs free-of-charge for the competition, and his generous support of the entire event. Thanks also to Amara Watersports and Quiksilver Thailand for supporting the Thai sailors in their participation in the event. Without them, this event would not have been possible. Thank you very much!!!
