Raja Muda Selangor Regatta 2010 - Penang

The Raja Muda Selangor International Regatta is a challenging offshore sailing race organised every year by the Royal Selangor Yacht Club in association with the RORC.

The event consists of three overnight passage races, some 240 miles in total, plus two days of harbour racing in Penang and Langkawi. With regatta dinners almost every night, a trishaw race and lots of opportunities to socialise, onshore activities can be just as demanding as the sailing.

It attracts a large variety of yachts, with over 60 participating in last year's 20th edition, from IRC1 racers to slow classic cruisers dating back nearly 100 years, all of whom had to battle through good winds and rough seas during the 9 day mix of races past tropical islands

Sails will return to Penang waters in force on 23rd November, when the Raja Muda fleet completes its race from Pangkor and berths at the Tanjung City Marina.

Over 50 yachts and 400 sailors will converge on George Town after some light hearted trishaw races at the marina, then head out to Pulau Tikus on Wednesday 24th November for a further series of races.
That evening they will celebrate at the historic Khoo Kongsi Clan House, with a cultural show (courtesy of Penang Global Tourism) and dinner.
