To everyone’s relief, NE trade wind arrives
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
10:01:2018 Langkawi, Malaysia: The heavy downpour last night during the Opening Ceremony, heralded the arrival of the NE monsoon trade wind. A short delay this morning while the breeze settled in and the start sequence was underway, in blue sky and 8 to 10 knots to propel the yachts on their way. Two races for all classes consisted of windward/leeward and passage courses, within the confines of Kua Harbour. As the breeze is likely to fade in the afternoon, PRO Simon James didn’t want to chance it with a third race and decided to call it a day and head back to the comfort of the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club for late lunch and refreshments.

10 January 2018

ESA is part of an ambitious effort to upgrade an existing VHF system to provide wide-bandwidth two-way communications to all mariners.

Two bites of the cheery, for one race
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
9:01:2018 Langkawi, Malaysia: Although the breeze looked promising as the yachts left the marina, it started to dwindle and completely faded as the fleet patiently waited. PRO Simon James decided to send the yachts back to the yacht club and wait for any improvements. At 1330 the postponement flag was dropped and crews scurried back out onto Kua Harbour. More delays as the breeze changed direction and finally settled on a sea breeze, to send the fleet on short windward/leeward courses. As they finished the dark clouds rolled in from the West and once again become unstable. This quashed any idea of running a second race and as the forecast increases in the coming days, crews must be thankful for completing one race in trying conditions.
