Maybe it was the announcement of the Qingdao Match Cup, or maybe it was just that everyone enjoyed MatchRace Thailand 1 and 2 - whatever, they are now lining up v3.0 in Pattaya, and we are very happy to see more match racing taking place in Asia.

There's more 'fun in the sun' announced by the Puerto Galera Yacht Club in the form of the All Souls Regatta. If you haven't been to the PGYC, you should schedule a visit - situated on one of the 'The Most Beautiful Bays in the World' (that's official, by the way) - and with plenty of breeze to keep the action going in the Verde Passage. Unfortunately dates of this regatta clash with the China Cup (but who knows, some people might find PG more attractive than Daya Bay).

For the last few days in Hong Kong, the only person who might have appreciated the weather was Noah - but now the sun is out, and there is some SW breeze, so we are all looking forward to a few clear days.
