by Icarus Sailing Media 14 Jan 2016 09:56 GMT 13 January 2016

Day 2 of the 14th Royal Langkawi International Regatta (RLIR) 2016 took sailors on the Kuah Harbour course in wind up to 12 knots.

Home favourites in the Sportsboats Class, Team RLYC, avenged their loss on Tuesday to get ahead of the Malaysian Navy crew ATM and the SMU crew to take top honours for the day. Their wins in Race 3 and 4 on Day 2 put them in the overall lead in the Sports Boat Class.

"We've all competed as part of the Malaysian National team but at different times and now we just need to coordinate our moves. Because the sports boats are of the same design, it puts all the teams on the same level so it's our teamwork and tactics that will make the difference," said Team RLYC skipper Rizal Mahadi Sazili.

In the Racing Class, Peter Ahern's Oi! and Ray Roberts' Millenium Racing took turns at the finish line in both races of the day but Millenium Racing's total points gave them the top spot.

Fujin retained its lead in the IRC1 class by taking honours in both races, ahead of MegaZip and Uranus, while Mata Hari, skippered by Vincent Chan was clearly the fastest among the IRC2 boats.

David Liddell's crew kept WOW ahead of the other Multihulls, leaving Allegro, IMAGE asia Nina and Manta Blu trailing, while Club Class defending champion Sophia took the lead throughout the Day 2 races.

The Tunku Abdullah Sportsmanship Award, will be presented to the best team for its competitiveness, fair racing and comradeship, on water and land, in memory of the late Founding Chairman and the first Commodore of the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club (RLYC), Almarhum Tunku Tan Sri Abdullah Tuanku Abdul Rahman.

The Royal Langkawi International Regatta (RLIR) 2016 is organised by the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club (RLYC) and sanctioned by the ISAF and Malaysian Sailing Association (MSA). The RLIR is part of the Asian Yachting Circuit.
