PHUKET: Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek went into overdrive yesterday, completing multiple races for most classes and catching up on those that were missed earlier in the week due to storms and unsailable conditions.
Three straight wins for Team Hollywood of Australia yesterday saw them comfortably lead the IRC Zero standings.
Close racing in the IRC One saw three different winners.
In the first race of the day, AquarII of Australia edged out the Russian crew on Megazip while the places were flipped in the second race.
Recovering from damage in the second race, East Marine Emagine of Australia bounced back into contention winning yesterday's final race and sat just three points behind in third place overall with Megazip and AquarII tied at the top.
Three more wins for Phoenix of Denmark left them seven points clear at the top of the IRC Two.
Meanwhile, the competition for second and third places was hotting up.
