CSC@Tioman Regatta (Pre-Event Report)

We are thrilled to return to one of the most beautiful locations on the eastern coast of Peninsular Malaysia! Following the success of last year’s event, we are excited to run the 2024 edition of the CSC@Tioman Regatta as promised. Set against the idyllic, picture-perfect backdrop of Pulau Tioman, this week-long sailing event from 15 to 21 June 2024 heralds a combination of racing and cruising.

While the overnight passage to Tioman is certainly exhausting, the scene straight out of ‘Jurassic Island’ that greets you upon arrival makes it all worth it. Low-lying clouds gather around the treetops of the island’s lush rainforests, and crystal blue waters lap against pristine white sandy beaches. As an ecological paradise, Tioman’s vibrant marine life and thriving coral reefs make it a superb destination for diving and snorkelling. In addition to the friendly racing everyone is geared up for, we hope our sailors will take the time to unwind and enjoy all that this enchanting island has to offer.

The advance party, comprised of Skybird (the Race Committee boat) and CSC 1, arrived mid-afternoon on Friday to meticulously prepare for the upcoming races. The team has been diligently setting up the race marks, office/pin end (conveniently at the outdoor bar) and noticeboard, and awaiting the arrival of our participating boats at the finish line throughout the day on Sunday.

We are happy to once again have Berjaya Tioman Resort host our contingent, with their warm hospitality and comfortable accommodation.

Participating boats in the regatta include: Miss Visayan, Bula, Sirius Omega, Firstlight, Rainbow Dream, Kaatabuggi, SITKA, First Light & Summer Breeze.

Stay tuned for updates and racing results!
