Putrajaya Sailing Week

Its back!! Putrajaya Sailing Week 2010, to be held from 9th-11th of July in Putrajaya, Malaysia will be organized in a spectacular way.
Parents and Coaches, this is one regatta where the racing sailors can't totally argue with you, on what they did or did not on water! You are practically just less than 10metres from shore when they bear off at the mark! Not to mention the gusty and shifty winds year on year, testing even the best of performance sailors with their laylines.
A note for the first timers, the wind in Putrajaya averages at 9 knots, and between June and August, the city welcomes the Southerwesterly Wind which kicks in at midday and holds steady at 12-14 knots ~ gusty, shifty, flat water racing. For the record, it was 12-14 knots for all three days of racing last year! All classes will benefit from the planned course, especially the lighter divisions. As expected it will be tight racing again as the course is compact and commands shift reading and tactical ability.

Add some good fun (more side events this year), comfortable lodging, good food and city attractions, teams are encourage to bring along their families to this beautiful city.
Yes. If you wish, its free accomodation and transportation from Hotel-Race Venue daily for the INTERNATIONAL SAILORS & TEAMS, to be provided by the organiser. Register fast and let us know how many are in your team attending.
