International Regatta –
Day 5

The elements came out to play on the final day of the 2012 Royal Langkawi International Regatta.

Good breeze, relatively flat seas and blue skies gave everyone a taste of tropical racing, Langkawi-style.

Two races were schedules for IRC Racing, IRC 2 and Multihulls, three for IRC 1 and one for the rest.

Going into the final day, the hotly-contested one-design Sports Boat Class was all equal at the top between Singapore Management University and the Malaysian Armed Forces.

First off the line today were IRC Racing. Team HiFi closely covered Hooligan up the first leg and after the rounding, Hooligan stretched out a lead on the spinnaker run only for Team HiFi to take the win on corrected time.

In the second race, Hooligan showed some good crew work to take the bullet and the series title, from Team HiFi in second.

The Malaysian Navy team, Uranus, turned in two third places today to finish third overall........
