Yachting and boating appears to be a growing phenomenon in Malaysia.
Certainly, there have been, for many years, some yacht clubs in Malaysia.
In recent years, though, these established clubs have been more of a social set-up with a few small dinghies out on an afternoon of racing possibly, but with not many larger boats in evidence.
Now that we have The Monsoon Cup, regular international regattas in Langkawi and the development of a number of new marinas around Malaysia, yachting is acquiring a decidedly higher profile.
