Start planning the Asia Season. It's fairly quiet on the sailing front in Asia at the moment, but when it starts, it's full-on. We were reminded of this today when we received a heads-up for the Raja Muda Selangor International Regatta 2011. Take a look - and start working on your 2011-2012 regatta calendar now!

And if you can't include Newport and the spectacular J Class in your list, just take a look at Daniel Forster's images in this newsletter. Enjoy!
