By AY MultiMedia
After canvassing boat owners, skippers, crew, supporters and sponsors during the season ending Sawadee.com Regatta and Regatta Forum discussions after the TOTG Regatta, the door has opened for everyone competing at any of the five star AYGP Championship events to have a chance of winning the prestigious 2011-12 AYGP Skipper and Yacht of the Year awards.

The pointscore system, has been whittled down mainly to keep it simple and fairly grade competing Boat owners and Skippers ability to successfully run full-on racing campaigns through Asian waters over the 2011-12 Season. All classes are included and the pointscore is based on the overall results at each of the 12 selected events on the 2011-12 Asian Calendar.

Goto 2011-12 AYGP PointscoreA new Pointscore System has been devised and launched into the new season with the following:
1. Everyone entered in any of the 12 regattas/races scores 5 points for attending
2. Six for winning the class, 4 for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, 2 for 4th and 1 for 5th place overall.
3. “Six best regattas to count” scoring system.
4. Plus a bonus point for each win within the regatta and a point loss for any DSQ. The bonus point for each win may encourage boats that may have placed well at the early regattas to compete the series for additional bonus point(s).

Regatta / Race Line-up for the season
Two more regattas have been added into the 5 star family of events that make up the AYGP. The combined Subic to Boracay Race and Boracay Cup in the Philippines, plus last years cancelled Hong Kong to Vietnam Race is being re-run, as well as the biannual Rolex China Sea Race is on again in April 2012. For sailors that want to race regionally, that makes it 12 *****events next season, 5 on the Eastern Asian seaboard (Hong Kong China, Vietnam, Philippines) and 5 in South East Asian waters (Singapore, Malaysia, Phuket SW Thailand, Indonesia) finishing up with the centrally located TOTGR and Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand. Under the “Six best regattas to count” scoring system these two regattas will be common events for the two regions as competitors come together for the grand final showdown. We should not over play the different regions as boat owners are not restricted to regional events and are free to compete on both circuits and in as many events they choose to contest.

2010-11 AYGP Photo GalleryIt must be remembered that the early stages are very experimental and we will continue on with our "Work in Progress" policy that has served us well for nine seasons and further tweaking is expected to take place as the season unfolds. We will still be presenting the Perpetual AYGP Cup filled with chilled champagne and the winner donning the Armani Koh Samui blue blazer at the gala 2012 Samui Regatta season ending prize presentation.

AY Photo LibraryOver the years Peter Ahern has won 2, Neil Pryde (3), Frank Pong (1) and Ray Roberts (3) should be asked what it takes to succeed. Now that we are opening up the competition to multiple classes, the degree of difficulty has just been elevated to a new and exciting level.
