HM Tuanku Sultan Johor today (26th Nov) launched the Johor Yacht & Recreation Club (JYRC) at R&F Marina Place (JYRC) – the newest sports and recreation hub in Johor Bahru.
Johor Jeep Owners Club chairman Datuk Md Othman Yusof and R&F Malaysia chairman Mr Li Mingliang, were among a host of dignitaries to welcome His Majesty to the all-new marina, which is an integral part of the exclusive R&F waterfront development overlooking the Straits of Johor and Singapore.
In conjunction with the launch, JYRC is also organising a three-day Johor Speedfest until Sunday (27 Nov).
This unique lifestyle and entertainment event will, among others, showcase an exhibition of supercars, superbikes, power boats, jet skis, yacht and seaplanes.
The event, which is supported by the Johor Tourism Department, will also feature cultural and entertainment festivities and a food bazaar. Admission is free.
The highlight of Johor SpeedFest is the Asia Powerboat Championship, which will see top teams from around the region compete for points in the Asian circuit, including Malaysia’s first all-female team.
The event is a prelude to plans to promote Johor and the Straits of Johor as the venue for regional and international power boat racing events
It is hoped that Johor Speedfest will also boost and position the State as a leading destination for adventure and recreation in the region.
