Langkawi to host sailing events during 2017 SEA Games : Langkawi

Sailing events for the 2017 SEA Games hosted by Malaysia are expected to be held at the National Sailing Complex in Langkawi.

Malaysian Yachting Association (MYA) general manager Mohd Afendy Abdullah said the MYA welcomed the decision to pick Langkawi as one of the venues for the SEA Games.

“Officers from the Youth and Sports Ministry and the National Sports Council (NSC) visited the complex recently to check on the facilities and services available at the complex,” he told Bernama, here today.

Mohd Afendy said since Langkawi had hosted the 2010 World Sailing Championship and the 2011 Asian Sailing Championship at the complex, he was confident that the venue would be ideal to host the events during the SEA Games.
