Windsikher II defends the Raja Muda Cup
Zuhal first Malaysian team to win Jugra Cup

By AsianYachting MultiMedia
26th Nov 2016: Despite a long week on the water and some classes already decided, everyone was out for the final showdown on Bass Harbour and cast this 27th edition in pewter. Overnight a new set of courses for the cruising classes, were devised by PRO Jerry Rollin, to finish the boats before the wind dies in the afternoon. Anticipation was in the air, as crews went about their pre-start drills and the countdown began. A 10 to 12 knot North Easterly, propelled all classes briskly away and on time. All eyes were on the IRC classes and they did not disappoint, as they circulated on windward/leeward courses. Close encounters between Sarab Singh’s Welbourn 52 Windsikher II and Kevin Whitcraft’s TP52 THA 72, in front of the tightly packed “Flying 40’s”, picking wind shifts and coercing their rides along, were the orders of the day.

And the beat goes on, Langkawi Harbour races
GBy AsianYachting MultiMedia
25th Nov 2016: Although the North Easterly arrived yesterday and paved the way for a quick trip from Penang, tired and weary crews were back at it today, for the Langkawi Harbour races. The delayed 1400hrs start time came as the trade wind began to fade and change direction. The Cruising Classes headed off down the harbour, to round some islands and channel markers, while the racing classes had to endure further delays, as the course was moved to suit the wind direction. When they did start, on a course laid in front of the yacht club and ferry terminal, much to the concern of the Harbour Master, the race was held in ghosting conditions and strong tidal currents. As the afternoon wore on, the call to shorten all courses went out, much to the detriment of most the cruisers, that could not finish in the time limit.

Wind gods shine on the Penang Langkawi race…
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
25th Nov 2016: Three quarters of an hour before the scheduled start time, the sea was flat calm and no sign of any wind. A few ruffles appeared from the West, that quickly filled in and by start time the wind gauges were registering 5 to 8 knots. Then it was on, for young and old. An obscure start line for the course, saw a couple of skippers pull off daring port tack starts, that paid handsomely. Half way to Langkawi the breeze faded as storm clouds were building overland and finally delivered over 20 knots from the North East. The IRC Racers came home with speed and judging from the comments at the bar, the race was very tactical, keeping everyone thinking and rewarded the ones that played the right cards. That’s why, they keep coming back year after year.

Penang Harbour races aroused the players
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
23rd Nov 2016: Just to further complicate matters, Murphy’s Law had to play its hand in proceedings. Up and out early, PRO Jerry Rollin and the race makers, set the marks for two courses, based on the land breeze. A few minutes before the start sequence, it was like someone turned off the fan switch and much to everyone’s dismay the postponement flag was displayed. Fortunately on the horizon the incoming seabreeze could be seen, while the courses were relayed and back to the starting signal. No complaints with the wind after that, as it built quickly throughout the afternoon. Joining the fleet in Penang is Kevin Whitcraft’s all conquering TP52 THA 72 and Robert van Paridon’s 12.81m trimaran Tantrum Too but both classes they entered, only have one runner and allowed to start with existing classes but are on their own.
