New name on Raja Muda Cup – Sarab Singh Windsikher II
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
28th Nov 2015: Overnight the North Easterly realigned itself along the harbour, with 12 to 14 knots and blue sky, to bring a picture perfect conclusion to the regatta. One passage race for the Multihull and Cruising classes and two windward/leeward races for the IRC racers, for the final showdown. Several classes already had an outright winner, while others the possibility of toppling the leader and settling the podium places existed. Despite a solid week of racing and crews feeling the stress and strain, they were all back out on the water and ready to race. As the high noon starting horn sounded, it was on in earnest and the best day of racing on picturesque Bass Harbour was left to last. Goto AY Photo Gallery

Langkawi turns on the breeze to consolidate standings
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
27th Nov 2015: Despite an early morning finish for some classes and the rescue of the dismasted Royal Malaysian Navy Contesa 32 Marikh skippered by Masyuri Rahamat, everyone who could, were back out on the race course, for some inshore racing. First off were the cruisers on a harbour course, then the IRC classes on two windward/leeward courses in Bass Harbour. As we enter the final stage of the regatta, its time to consolidate the score and improve the standings. The North Easterly has turned into an Easterly, making it difficult to set the racing course across the harbour. With some shuffling of the start line, everyone was catered for and racing completed in time. The International Jury have been busy with a few protests and numerous request for redress, for going to the assistance of the dismasted Marikh. All will be resolved and the results adjusted to suit.

An awards ceremony full of emotion

nov-2815-ts

We know about the business of awards cermonies. They are one of those obligations because it is the opportunity to officially celebrate the winners, thank all those who contributed to the success of the event, and put a full stop on the race. Behind it, there will be some secret get-togethers, a last toast to friendship, a planned stroll in a little circles on the beaches of Guadeloupe, but the piquant flavour of the race will gradually fade.

Sandra had winds of 125 knots (144 mph) at that time making it a category three on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. On Nov. 27 NOAA’s GOES-West satellite captured an image of Sandra, although now a Category 2 hurricane continues its approach to landfall in Western Mexico.

Classic conditions return for Pinang to Langkawi Race
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
27th Nov 2015: When Aussie Maid did her first RMSIR in 1991, the members of the Royal Selangor Yacht Club warned the crew that the Pinang to Langkawi leg would be very windy, if the North East Monsoon arrived. They were right and the Maid went on to set a new benchmark time, to the Pelangi Beach Resort finish line, that was never bettered.
