The Melaka government's inaugural Melaka International Regatta 2007 will be staged at Pantai Kelebang, about 13km from here, for six days from November 8.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the regatta organised in collaboration with the Youth and Sports Ministry is a continuation of the Melaka River Festival that will be held from November 1 to 8.

Speaking at a press conference here today, he said it would be the fourth biggest regatta in the country after Raja Muda International Regatta, Royal Langkawi International Regatta and the Monsoon Cup.

"It will have jet ski shows and workshops, F3000 powerboat racing and optimist/laser class sailing apart from night time "para sailing", which will be a first in Asia," he said, adding that the state planned to make it an annual event.

Some 200 participants from Thailand, Singapore, Brunei, Australia and China are due to take part in it.
