What should have been a comfortable lead for Phusiri Sirichai after race 7 has been completely overturned by Hong Kong's Lee Chun Ting who wins the T293 Asian Championships!  The last three races can only be described as disastrous for Phusiri Sirichai who finished each one way down the fleet.  Lee Chun Ting took three bullets to end up on equal points overall, but the discard came into play giving him the final top place on the podium.  Man Ngo Hin from Hong Kong took three seconds in these final races and takes bronze position.
In the girls fleet, Krongkaew Sakufeang allowed her closest rival Ngai Wai Yan to take two bullets in the final three races but regained form to win the final race.  She takes the winner's place, Ngai Wai Yan takes silver and Roxy Hui settles for third.

At the end of day three, Krongkaew Sakufeang from Thailand has stamped her authority over the girls fleet with a perfect score of 6 after 7 races (including one discard).  It is a very interesting battle between the girls from Hong Kong, Ngai Wai Yan and Roxy Hui as only one point separates their second and third positions.

Similarly in the boys fleet, Phusiri Sirichai from Thailand is at the top of the leaderboard with 7 points whilst Lee Chun Ting and Li Hong Lam from Hong Kong also have just one point separating their second and third places.

Results Day 3 - T293 Boys  T293 Girls 

Day 2 of racing began with clear skies and scorching heat. For the first race, the wind was North East at 3-7 knots. The 2nd race of the day was in slightly better conditions as wind picked up to about 8-10 knots. However, racing was stopped at 3:30pm due to inclement weather.

Phusiri Sirichai in the Boys now has a very strong lead with a perfect 4 points after five races (one discard).  The Hong Kong sailor Li Hong Lam in second place is just one point in front of fellow countrymen Lee Chun Ting and Man Ngo Hin, both on 11 points.

Also in the Girls fleet, Thailand's Krongkaew Sakufeang has a perfect 4 points at the top of the leaderboard.  Ngai Wai Yan and Roxy Hui, both from Hong Kong, are in second and third places, separated by just one point.

The SIM 30th Singapore Open Asian Windsurfing Championships got off to a great start with North Easterly winds between 10 to 15 knots. Shifty wind conditions in the 2nd and 3rd race resulted in challenging sailing conditions for everyone. The start of the 3rd race saw wind speeds drop to 5 knots, and many competitors had to change their strategy.

In the Bic Techno 293 category, Thailand's sailors ended the day with 1st position in both the U-17 boys and girls classes.

The 2011 Asian Championships for Techno 293 will be hosted by Windsurfing Association Singapore at the 30th SIM Singapore Open Windsurfing Championships.

Started in 1980, the Windsurfing Association Singapore was previously known as the Board Sailing Association Singapore.  In 2008, the Association was renamed as the Windsurfing Association Singapore as part of the committee's effort to rebrand itself and remain relevant.

An annual competition organized by the Association, the Singapore Open Windsurfing Championship is the biggest event on the local windsurfing calendar.  Attracting more than 130 local and foreign competitors from all over Asia and the world, the Championship is already into its 29th year.

The 2011 and 30th edition will, in addition to the Asian Championships for T293, RS:X and MOD, include a course racing event for Raceboard and Formula, a slalom event for Funboards (IFCA) and the usual introduction sessions to windsurfing and tuning clinics.
The 2011 mega event will run from 12th to 16th January at the National Service Resort & Country Club Sea Sports Centre, Changi Coast Walk.
