Kuching, Malaysia

I will be going to Kuching, Malaysia for the second half of September and the first half of October. I will be going back for most of November. Since I will be working during the week, I would like to have some fun on the weekends. Does anyone know where I can rent a sailboat in the area? I am willing to travel to the northern part of the island as well.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Nick,

There is a small marina in Kuching where there are some cruising yachts. Maybe you can get on for a day sail. Up in Kota Kinabalu there are several small boat yacht clubs. If you get over to Brunei the Royal Brunei Yacht Club has small boats for rent. Make sure you check out the Sarawak Cultural Center over in Santabong. They host the Rainforest World Music Festival every July. We spent several weeks in this area last year, sailing of course.....

Thank you for the tips. I did a few web searches and only charter boats came up. Maybe I am not as good at searching the web as I thought.

Nice! Be careful in Kucing. I have my bad experience there.
