Eighteen RMYS members made the happy trip to the Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Race Week in Thailand, from 20-24 July.
Our members were spread across two boats. Foreign Affair, a Farr 30 competing in the IRC III division, was skippered by Ian Lodewyckx and Keith O'Donnell. Venture, a Hanse 400, had Jimmy Oosterweghel as skipper, and was entered in the Cruising/Charter division.
Both boats had some excellent results, with Foreign Affair placing second overall in IRC III, and Venture finishing third overall in Cruising/Charter. Foreign Affair was unlucky not to take out the division title, after some changes were made to the results after racing. Congratulations to all who competed for RMYS and Australia!
The Phuket Race Week website has some great news coverage on their homepage.
