Strongbow Baby Tonga!


While going through my old blog pots, I found my old Sailing Adventure entries. It was back in 2008 and me and a few media people were invited to sail on a boat around Pulau Langkawi.

Before sailing, we were put in a very nice hotel with awesome food.

We sailed around Pulau Langkawi on a small boat. We had a small band playing and even a masseur!

Lunch was massive.

Halfway through the journey, we stopped by some islands and launched some kayaks to the islands. We passed through some tunnel before ending in a cove.

Then we experience the “sea Jacuzzi”. Salty Jacuzzi is more like it.

Overall a good experience! Would love to go sailing on the seas again!

Speaking about sailing, the Raja Muda Selangor International Regatta (RMSIR), a challenging offshore sailing race organised every year by the Royal Selangor Yacht Club, has just started. It consists of three overnight passage races, some 240 miles in total, plus three days of harbour racing in Penang and Langkawi.

One of the yachts, Baby Tonga — a Beneteau 53f5 owned by Antony Hastings — is returning this year to the RMSIR.

Strongbow has been the official beverage enjoyed by Baby Tonga’s crews in RMSIR. It is drunk prior to races and Strongbow is the perfect beverage for sailors on the go, and its refreshing crispness takes away the attention from the intensity of the heat.

My Sailing Adventure trip was actually a media trip. It was fully paid for and it was a chance of a lifetime to be on such trip. I wouldn’t be able to afford such trip on my own!

Anyway, Strongbow is now running a contest on its Facebook page in association with the sponsorship. You may win a cruise on Baby Tonga with your friends by taking part in this mini game!

The game

Move the boat round with your keyboard. My boat got stuck. FUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Once you are done, you need to answer some trivia questions.

The results. I FAILED!

I must say this game is not easy!! It’s hard to control the boat!
