JoinOnaria Logo.jpg (2263 bytes) and AlexanderForbesLogo.jpg (1739 bytes) who have successfully advertised their companyís logo's on the hull and sails of the victorious racing yacht Gotcha and on team shirts worn by the crew and supporters of this fast emerging Malaysian yacht racing team. By becoming an advertising sponsor your company would be directly contributing to the development of yachting in Malaysia and keeping the skillful Rahim brothers and the Gotcha racing team on their winning ways during the prestigious South East Asian Perpetual Cup. A series of yacht racing regatta's held annually in Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia.

AmirMoxTrophy.jpg (7034 bytes) The S.E.A. Regatta Circuit is an excellent opportunity for advertisers to promote their organization and products to a targeted clientele on a yacht that is well known in this region for her fair sailing and race winning record. Also the opportunity to be directly exposed to the regionís sailing community through the regatta coverage.

GOTCHA Is the sentimental favorite on the regionís sailing circuit and due to her successes commands good media coverage in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. Additionally, by advertising on GOTCHA you will automatically be sponsoring us in our quest to win the Southeast Asian Regatta Series. Your support would no doubt combine Malaysian yachting achievements and plant your company's interests firmly into the regionís yachting arena. 


GOTCHA Is a 36-foot racing sloop. Designed by Bruce Farr and Associates, she was built in 1991 by Hitech Yachts in Australia and complies with the CHS measurement rules whilst her stability, safety standards and rating allows her to participate in the racing division. In 1994, she had a new keel and rudder installed which made her more responsive in light airs and improved her off-wind performance, which is ideal for this regionís circuit.

GOTCHAís past successes include winning the Raja Muda International Regatta three times in 1992, 1994 and 1995 with her former owners including the 10th anniversary in 1999 with her present Malaysian owners. She achieved this feat against the regular heavyweights on the circuit and at the Phuket Kingís Cup Regatta, GOTCHA   has emerged as the Racing Class B champion on two occasions. In one of these she had a perfect finish of all firsts.

GOTCHAís exploits in Southeast Asia are well known and she does command considerable media coverage and has graced the front pages of various sailing magazines and newspapers. She is now Malaysian owned and will be flying the Malaysian colors, which will no doubt attract considerable attention with the regionís print and electronic media.

Crew training has been conducted in earnest through out the year at the Royal Selangor Yacht Club for this series and they are determined to out-perform the rest and defend last years 1st place overall and be the first Malaysian owned yacht to win the prestigious Raja Muda Cup two years in succession. Also, god willing, the Kingís Cup, Singapore Straits Cup and eventually, the Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy. Your corporationís support would be vital in determining our ability to put together the strongest Malaysian challenge so far.
