Goto AY Race Report 5 & Summary24 Nov 2012: Drizzling rain and light shifty winds greeted sailors as they arrived for the last day of competition at the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club. Some classes relied on these races to determine the overall results. Disconsolate crews made their way onto the water as the race officers went about setting the courses. Although a huge wind shift came through at start time the Premier Cruisers, Cruising 5 & 6 got away on their harbour passage race but the IRC racers were held back for the wind direction to steady and the windward/leeward course to be relayed several times. Once again a rain cell descended over the course reducing viability to less than 100 meters. Eventually the yachts appeared back through the mist and completed the race. As the miserable conditions persisted no further racing was signaled and everyone adjourned to the yacht club to pack up the boats and the final prize presentation and dinner.

Raja Muda Regatta – AY Race Report 4

MultiStartPenang

Slow and drawn out race to Langkawi
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
23 Nov 2012: The lack of wind at the high noon start time, resulted in PRO Jerry Rollin raising the “Follow Me” signal and motoring off in the direction of Langkawi. After 1 3/4 hours and 10 miles from Penang, a consistent six knot North Westerly arrived, which allowed the race committee to go into sequence and fire the fleet away. With the breeze being right on the nose and likely to change further down the track, it turned into a gamble, which tack will favour in the long run. Although the shortened 40nm leg started out well, it soon turned light and required constant sail trimming to keep the boat footing along. No one ever stopped moving and as the night turned into early morning, the breeze increased a little and even the cruising classes came home with a rush.
