ROYAL SELANGOR YACHT CLUB
Port Klang is tucked into the shelter created by Pulau Klang with main cargo docks north of the river entrance. A busy port, it’s the main cargo terminal for Kuala Lumpur 40 miles inland.
Approach to the Royal Selangor Yacht Club from either the southern Selang Klang Selatran or the northern Selang Klang Utara channels. Both are deep and well buoyed for ships. Keep to the sides and well out of the way of the commercial traffic. Behind Pulau Klang turn east on the main river for 2 miles then take the first northern tributary to find the Royal Selangor Yacht Club, situated 500 metres up on the east bank.
There are some 30 club member berths attached to the clubhouse, with longitudinal space for half dozen visitors’ boats on the detached pontoons both sides of the river. The club is the oldest in Malaysia with a rich history. It is the host club to the Raja Muda Selangor International Regatta from Port Klang to Langkawi, held yearly in late November.
Only the club member berths have water and electricity. Refuelling and watering is difficult, but can be arranged with advance notice on the club pontoons. Currents of 1-3 knots run in the river around mid tide. Best to arrive in daylight close to slack water for safer mooring. Contact on VHF Ch. 72 for berthing advice before tying up. Kuala Lumpur is 40 minutes by taxi.
