Boracay Race record

In the 204-mile Manila to Boracay Race, Frank Pong's Jelik won the Standard Insurance Trophy for line honours and the Kellet Island Trophy for the overall title in a record time of 19h 6s beating his own record on Boracay of 19h 48m. Subic Centennial was second and Karakoa third. In IRC B, Jun Avecilla's Selma Star was victorious, finishing the ordeal in 32h 38m, winning over Challenge and Sandoway.

It was a rough and tumble, wet, wild and cold overnight race with rains and winds over 27 knots and 6ft swells that caused the dismasting of Doni Altura’s J35 Vivaldi and the withdrawal of a couple of yachts that got pounded in the treacherous Verde Passage. Defending Manila-Boracay IRC B winner, Irresistible, was supposed to join the race but was dismasted off Fortune Island on the way to Manila from her base in Coron.
