Red carpet roll out for 28th Raja Muda Regatta...
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
Goto AY Pre-Regatta Report17th Nov 2017: A small armada of foreign racing yachts, are tied up at the Royal Selangor Yacht Club in Port Klang and ready to take on local sailors, during the 28th edition of this unique, island hopping regatta, up the West Coast of Peninsula Malaysia. Thirty yachts, divided into six classes, will go under starters orders and are looking forward to some close racing and friendly Malaysian hospitality. The 8 day challenge consists of three overnight passage races, totaling 260nm, 3 days of harbour racing in Penang and Langkawi, plus requires lots of stamina for five prize giving parties, along the way. Presently the SW monsoon is making way for the NE tradewind and recently produced some unsettled coastal weather, so teams must be prepared to reduce their sails and change racing tactics to suite the conditions. Often this regatta is described as 'very character building and challenging event', which lures back sailing teams, year after year. Goto AY Pre-Regatta Report...

China Cup skippers make solid start in AYGP Rankings
By AY MultiMedia
Goto November AYGP News...
November 3rd 2017: As the Eastern Circuit regattas dominated the racing scene last month, we welcomed the China Cup into the 5-star family of point scoring events, at the Sailing Forum (Watch Promo Video), with 89 new Skipper and Yachts slotting into the 2017-18 AYGP Rankings. Many skippers are chartering or changing yachts during the season, so we could possibly have a split between the separate scoring AYGP Skipper and Yacht of the Year awards. For the time being, Nick Southward's J-109 Whisky Jack double IRC Racer 2 class victory at the Volvo China Coast Regatta and the 673nm Volvo Hong Kong to Vietnam Race are still sitting on top of the Rankings.

14:10:2017: Day 2 turned into the final day of the Volvo China Coast Regatta due to Tropical Storm Khanun approaching Hong Kong. Racing carried on as planned for the day but as the last boats crossed the line in their final race it was announced that due to the likelihood of a Typhoon 3 signal being issued and still being in force tomorrow, all racing would be cancelled for the final day of the regatta. A northerly breeze of 15 to 22kts greeted the racers as they reached the race track south east of Lamma Island this morning. IRC 0, 1, 2 and 3 were sent on two windward/leewards and an island course with IRC Premier sailing one island course. The HKPN division sailed one windward/leeward and an island course. All the leaders from Day 1 of the regatta were able to maintain their lead in their divisions. Goto RHKYC Race Reports...

Goto AY Race Report 4 & SummaryJuly 23rd Cape Panwa: A small clockwise pressure system to the South of Phuket, in the Northern reaches of the Malacca Strait, is pushing the SW'ly monsoon flow, out into the Bay of Bengal, to the West of Phuket and replacing it with its own light South Westerly breeze. This disturbed air flow has confused weather forecasters over the last few days and despite the grim predictions, local conditions have prevailed and defied the forecast, with four days of racing in 5 to 12 knots and managed to complete 8 races for the racing class and 6 for the cruisers. In these conditions the racing becomes very tactical and choosing the right lanes is the formula to success. Goto AY Race Report 4 & Summary and follow all the action in the AY Photo Gallery
