The Tourism Malaysia Race Day Five for the 17th Royal Langkawi International Regatta 2019 saw Team Hollywood lifting the Prime Minister’s Challenge Trophy, under the Racing Class today.
Having won 9 races out of the 9 they competed in, the team from Australia – reached a final score of 9 – following five days of sailing. Coming in second and third to them were THA72 and SCS Janda Baik, with scores of 17 and 31, respectively.
Tayfun Koksal, Regatta Director said it was a good regatta for this year as the showmanship of participants and the teamwork was absolutely fantastic.
“I am delighted that we had good winds throughout the week, without which, exciting sailing would not have been possible. This regatta offered good exposure to new teams, and we had 34% increase in teams that took part. This is encouraging and we hope to organise another successful regatta in 2020 with even more sailing boats,” he said, adding that all teams did two rounds of races at Kuah Harbour.
