This is the largest annual sailing event held in Borneo for cruising yachts and IRC class racing yachting. If you have sailing experience you might be able to charter a yacht or join one as crew.

I was lent a yacht last year and entered a scratch crew consisting of two experienced crew plus two backpackers with no experience and we managed to get a third place in the racing class for the passage race from Labuan to Kota Kinabalu in Sabah

Where: The race starts in Miri Sarawak and passes through Brunei and Labuan before finishing in Kota Kinabalu Sabah

When: 24th-31st July 2010
