2019 RMSIR: Langkawi sees many breezing homes despite shifty winds
KUAH (22 November 2019) – The first day of the Langkawi inshore races at Kuah Harbour saw participating boats in the 30th Raja Muda Selangor International Regatta (RMSIR) experience a good day of racing despite some tricky winds.
Rolf Heemskerk’s ‘The Next Factor’ placed third in both Class 1 races today but the newcomer leads the racing class in the overall standings and looks set to sail away with the title and the coveted Raja Muda Cup tomorrow. "Team Hollywood’ (Ray Roberts) is currently in second place overall with former champion ‘Windsikher’ (Sarab Singh/Nick Burns) in a close third.
The Premiere class, on the other hand, looks set for a nail-biting finish tomorrow as ‘Colie’ (Doug Sallis) has a slim lead over former Class 2 champion ‘Antipodes’ (Geoff Hill) after today’s race. The final day of racing will determine who goes home with the Jugra Cup.
