Online Registration is OFFLINE until March 2023...
Important Information for participants...
Jabatan Laut – the marine authority of Malaysia – have informed us that they must have copies of all the participating boats REGISTRATION and INSURANCE cover.
We believe this has come about because of some yachts being abandoned and/or sinking within Malaysian waters over the past 2 +years of lockdowns. Therefore this is a necessary yet troublesome consequence.
- For foreign registered boats the residing country Boat Registration document is required.
- Insurance must include Malaysia P&I requirements.
- For Malaysian registered boats, the P&I cover has to be from a company on the Jabatan Laut list.
Jabatan Laut are requiring that we furnish them a list of all participants’ documentation well before the regatta so please send ASAP. Some people already have done so with insurance cover notes, but please ensure you all get these sent to us before the end of October at the latest. If we don’t have them by then it may jeopardise your participation on the regatta.
Some boats heading for Port Klang in readiness for the regatta have reported that customs have become rather more dutiful than in the past, especially when departing Langkawi. They now come on board and check lockers and storage areas before allowing you to depart…. So be warned!
Also be aware that in Langkawi Friday and Saturday are non-working days so you will NOT get clearance done on those days.
- Classes will be finalised once we see what boats preregister this year. Provisional classes are as per previous years....
