The 31st RMSIR was originally planned to take place in November 2020, but was postponed indefinitely due to the worldwide Covid pandemic. In recent months Malaysia has made excellent progress with vaccination campaigns and the number of serious cases are predicted to fall significantly in the fourth quarter of 2021. The Health Minister has announced that “Malaysia should enter the endemic phase by the end of October, and at that time we will start to live with the virus, with more sectors reopened.” We therefore consider that the 31st Raja Muda Selangor International Regatta can be scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year.

We are pleased to announce that the 31st RMSIR will take place 10-18 December 2021 in a simplified format.

The scaled down version of RMSIR will consist of a series of friendly passage and harbour races, following the usual Port Klang > Pangkor > Penang > Langkawi route, but with a revised format to include sailing to Pangkor overnight on Saturday 11th December, followed by on-water events in Pangkor on Monday 13th December. The usual passage race format will be scheduled from Pangkor to Penang, but there will not be any inshore racing in Penang, with the fleet sailing on to Langkawi after an overnight stop. Limited social gatherings will follow the Government SOP, so there will be no organised dinners or entertainment in Pangkor and Penang; food and drink will be D.I.Y.

If there are any yacht owners who wish to join us starting in Penang on Thursday 16th December for the passage race to Langkawi, followed by two days of harbour racing in Langkawi, we will add an extra class for this group. Please contact us via email to register your interest. All participants and staff will need to be double vaccinated at least two weeks prior to the event, and adhere to an SOP that will be released immediately before the event.

Anyone intending to join - we suggest that you make your crew hotel bookings an urgent priority, especially in Langkawi, as this is a busy holiday period.
