But we are getting ahead of ourselves: today is 5th December, the birthday of His Majesty King Bhumiphol Adulyadej of Thailand, the monarch for whom this regatta was inaugurated and after whom it is named.

We should all remind ourselves occasionally that Race Officers cannot control the wind. That is the prerogative of an even higher authority.

Phuket King’s Cup 2014, day 3 – A damn good grilling By Guy Nowell, Sail-World Asia, Phuket, Thailand , 3:47 AM Thu 4 Dec 2014
When the sky is blue and the breeze is in, it is very easy to forget how hot it really is. Turn off the fan, and you remember very quickly. Once again everyone was on station for starts at 0900h, and once again there was no ‘f’ in wind – well, certainly not in the edition of the OED that I consulted. (Yes of course I have a 13-volume dictionary with me at all times). ...[more]

Phuket King’s Cup 2014, day 2 – great sunbathing weather, then breeze By Guy Nowell, Sail-World Asia, Phuket, Thailand , 3:00 AM Wed 3 Dec 2014
Everyone ready to go at 0900h, but very much a case of 'hurry up and wait'. Glass calm all around, and limp APs on both committee boats. The cruising and charter boats on Course Bravo amused themselves with a bit of sunbathing, some swimming, and even lining up to have their photo taken. And we waited. ...[more]

For those of us accustomed to watching a King’s Cup fleet take of at 070 or thereabouts it was quite disconcerting. ...[more]
