Busy Day 3 at Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek 2019

IRC Zero, IRC I, IRC II and Firefly 850 completed three races on Day 3 of the Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek  2019, while Multihull Racing completed two and Cruising Monohulls one.

In IRC Zero (which is being joint scored with IRC I entries) Ray Roberts and his crew on Team Hollywood (AUS) had a good day on the water posting three bullets. Adding to the one from Friday, they comfortably lead the standings.

In IRC I, a double-win in Saturday's first race for AquarII (AUS) – line honours and on corrected time – gave Craig Nicholls and crew their first win of the series. Looking to repeat the result in the second race, AquarII were edged out of it by just six seconds on corrected time and had to settle for second, behind Megazip (RUS) in first while Jessandra II (GBR) placed third. Damage to East Marine Emagine in the second race resulted in a DNF, but they bounced back in the third and final race of they day to win it, and stay in contention. A second in the final race for AquarII and fourth for Megazip see these two tied at the top with just one day to go.

The conditions haven't phased Phoenix (DEN) and after barreling across the finish line on Friday in a storm with spinnaker up, they were back out there Saturday with bit between teeth and it paid off: three more bullets and a comfortable lead in IRC II.

Elsewhere in the class the two Platus are having a battle royal and it was Sydney Premier Karting Park (AUS) who got the better of The Dragon (AUS) on Saturday, and with that are now tied on points. A 3,3,4 scoreline today see Farrgo Express (AUS) four points further back.

A single long race for the Cruising Monohull sailors saw them round a mark off the northeastern tip of Bon Island, then around the safe water mark off Laem Panwa before heading into Chalong Bay to round the outer port channel mark, Koh Lon and to the finish.

With just five seconds separating them across the line, Lady Bubbly (AUS) corrected out ahead of BeauX Esprits (AUS) to claim their first win of the series. After handicaps were applied, Venture (AUS) slotted into second place and BeauX Esprits had to settle for third.

Two races for Multihull Racing and two more wins for Phantom V (AUS), making it three from three and a healthy lead at the top of the standings. Bonza (GBR) sailed to two second places and hold onto second overall ahead of Fugazi (AUS) in third.

Voodoo (GER) reveled in Saturday's conditions and found their groove adding two wins and a second to their tally. In the process they jump to the top of the standings tied on six points with defending champion, Twin Sharks (GBR), who finished the day with a 2,1,2 scoreline. Despite two third places today for Surf Patrol (AUS), they remain in fourth overall behind Moto Inzi (FRA). If a fifth race is completed on Sunday, the final day, expect some changes as the drop race is introduced.
