Moving quickly onwards... Raja Muda last week, Phuket King's Cup next. 75 boats on the entry list, 10 classes, and the biggest of the lot is the Bareboat class with 23 entries. Stand by for a good time.
We spoke to Adam Minoprio during the Raja Muda - he was sailing on KukuKERchu - and he is very much looking forward to getting back onto the WMRT circuit at the Monsoon Cup. Terengganu was where he started his professional match racing career. 'There are some good memories there, especially from 2009 when we won the WMRT.' It's amazing how fast the ranking numbers collapse when you stop doing it for five minutes - Minoprio is currently ranked 132nd but that number will be sure to diminish by the end of next week.
There's been another 'casualty' in the Vendee Globe. Vincent Riou (PRB) is out, bringing the score to 7 retired, 13 still sailing. And Alex Thomson is one of them, currently lying in second position.
And maybe most spectacular of all - Paul Larsen's new speed record has been ratified at 59.23 kts over 500m - but wait, that's not all... Larsen has also clocked a peak speed of 68 knots. Just gotta get it on the clock. Blink and you'll miss him.
