The Neptune Regatta is unique in Asia. Firstly, it’s a motor and sail regatta. And secondly, it is the world’s only equator regatta.
The Neptune Regatta welcomes all types of sailors, from novice to experienced, and encourages all types of sailing vessels from catamarans to monohulls, cruisers to all-out carbon racing machines, and motor vessels.
The Neptune Regatta takes place in Indonesian waters, starting and returning to Nongsa Point Marina which located on Batam Island is only 11 miles from Singapore.
The Neptune Regatta combines a series of windward/ leeward and passage races, depending on class, with the approximately 85 nautical miles “Race to Zero” being a race through the Riau Islands in Indonesia to the equator.
The Neptune Regatta was added the 2013/14 Asian Yachting Grand Prix Championship for the first time and is set to offer something different to yachts campaigning in Asia.
The Regatta has become known for its fun, yet exciting and challenging racing, as well as the stunning racing grounds which take in a anchipelago of tropical islands south of Batam to the equator, making the Neptune Regatta a yachting event unmatched in the regional sailing calendar.
