Peninsular Sailing Club

Sailors and spectators alike loved the inaugural Malaysian Squib Class National Championship at Pulau Indah Marina. The event was brilliantly hosted by The Peninsular Sailing Club Selangor.

Nine Squibs enjoyed three days of close racing in beautiful conditions, the sea-breeze filling in right on cue each afternoon at 14:00 hours. The seven-race series had three different race winners, Haiku 1, Mandarin and PSC Vice Commodore Rama’s Lady VG. This was one-design racing at its very best, the constant place changing proving the old Squib adage of ‘easy to sail but difficult to sail well’ .

Race Officer Simon James set interesting sausage/triangle courses using the width of the river and unusually no one ran aground.

The championships went down to the wire with Luke Robins from Sydney and crew Vladimir from the Czech Republic (and the club cafeteria) triumphantly overtaking Jason Moriarty and John Kara in Mandarin in front of the Club House on the penultimate leg of the final race.
