Raja Muda Selangor International Regatta 2013
15 Nov 2013 – 23 Nov 2013
The Raja Muda Selangor International Regatta (RMSIR), one of Asia’s oldest keelboat sailing events now in its 24th year, is scheduled to take place from 15th to 23rd November 2013. Organised by the Royal Selangor Yacht Club (RSYC) in association with the UK based Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC), this annual event is the only offshore sailing regatta held in Malaysia and Thailand. With a mixture of overnight passage and harbour races starting in Port Klang, the coastal course comprises a total of 240 miles up the Malacca Straits, with stops at the unique tropical islands of Pangkor, Penang and Langkawi.
Competitive sailors from Asia and beyond come to Malaysia each year in their hi-tech racing yachts, to participate alongside local challengers and historic vessels. Teams are made up of both professional and non-professional sailors, the latter being the majority. You can view these magnificent yachts, and maybe catch a glimpse of the racing, at Pulau Indah Marina Port Klang on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th November, Straits Quay Marina Penang on Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th November and Telaga Harbour Langkawi on Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd November.
