Wonderful start to the regatta…
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
17th Nov 2018: Blue sky and a building North Westerly greeted the teams as they approached the start line. Ten knots got the starting sequence underway, on time and in reverse order, with the Classic Cruisers first away. PRO Jerry Rollin’s race team, worked their way through the order, until the lone Multihull Meitatsu Fukumoto / Seng Huang Lee’s ORMA 60 SHK Scallywag FUKU skippered by David Witt flew across the line, 40 minutes latter. It didn’t take long for them to cut their way through the fleet and as the breeze, backed around to the South West, forcing the IRC fleet into a downwind gybing tussle.

Raja Muda Regatta ready for blast off…
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
16th Nov 2018: Once again a mixture of foreign and Malaysian owned yachts are lining up at the Royal Selangor Yacht Club in Port Klang, for the 29th edition of this unique, island hopping regatta, along the West Coast of Peninsula Malaysia. Twenty six yachts, divided into seven classes, are under starters orders, for an 8 day challenge, consisting of three overnight passage races, totaling 260nm and 3 days of harbour racing in Penang and Langkawi. Crews require an iron constitution to get through the racing program, let alone five prize giving parties, along the way. Presently the NE trade wind is trying to push through and has recently produced unsettled coastal weather. Teams must be prepared to change gears and tactics, to suite the conditions. Entries vary from outright serious racers, to local crews having a good time together on their boat and has popularly become known as ‘Very character building and challenging event’, that lures some teams back, year after year.
