The event consists of an inter-port passage race starting from Port Klang and ending at Langkawi with stops at Pangkor and Penang. There were harbour races in Penang and Langkawi which constituted part of the series of passage and harbour races. A total of 6 keelboat classes took part. Conditions this year for racing were good.

The jury panel started off with 4 members for the first leg from Port Klang to Pangkor and was therefore not properly constituted in accordance with Appendix N as the 5th member could only arrive when the race had reached the 3rd port of Penang. The teams were briefed that hearings if any, would be under N1.4. However, as there were no protests during this period, it was not an issue. Unfortunately, at the last port of the race in Langkawi, the same 5th member had a medical emergency and had to leave early. Fortunately, a past eminent member of the jury happened to be visiting the event and availed himself. The OA appointed him as a 5th member of the jury in compliance with Appendix N to replace the judge who had a medical emergency.

The jury had a good working relationship with the RC and the OA. The OA did a splendid job of managing the event at every port as well as the logistics and movement of resources from one port to the other. As the 28th edition of the regatta, the development of the unique combination of passage and harbour races, resulted in the Sailing Instructions (SI) having been edited and amended many times over the years for fine-tuning purposes.The jury recommends that parts of the SI be reworded for clarity prior to the next edition of the regatta. - SINJN2
