AO CHALONG: After four days of racing in and around Chalong Bay, Scott Duncanson’s Somtam Express has won the IRC 1 class in this year’s Phuket Raceweek regatta.

Shifting winds played havoc with the start of the final race in the regatta yesterday and the fleet waited four hours for it to swing around to allow the race to start.

Once underway, the yachts set sail around Koh Bon, Koh Lone and Koh Hei with the finish line in front of the Evason Phuket Resort, which has been host to the regatta.

Somtam Express yesterday recorded yet another first-place finish to bring their tally to four firsts and one second place to score a tally of just six points.

Although impressive, it was not Somtam’s best performance – at last year’s Phuket Raceweek Somtam Express won every race in the Sports Boat Racing class.
