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.
That evening they will celebrate at the historic Khoo Kongsi Clan House, with a cultural show (courtesy of Penang Global Tourism) and dinner.
