There's a new look to the Boracay Race this year - for starters, it begins in Subic Bay. The race is now run by the Boracay International Regatta Committee and SAGS (Saturday Afternoon Gentlemens' Sailing), following the collapse of any recognisable competitive sailing at the Manila Yacht Club.
Secondly, the course now allows boats to pass west of Mindoro - skipping out the contrary trip through the Verde Passage - but which is the quicker route? Interesting tactical decision there...
The race to Boracay will be followed immediately afterwards by the Boracay Cup - by popular demand. Literally.
