Welcome to the Nongsa Neptune Regatta, a family friendly race and convoy boating event to the Equator and back. An island hopping style suitable for sailing and power boats of all sizes, be it beginners or experienced sailors.
Aside from the desire to cross the equator and check whether the water changes direction, the regatta also takes participants on a voyage through virgin sailing waters of great splendour.
The Nongsa Neptune Regatta takes place entirely in Indonesian waters with a start and finish at Nongsa Point Marina (N01°11’.90 E104°05’.80). Nongsa Point Marina is the yachting gateway to Indonesia and is only 11 nautical miles from Singapore & Johor.
The islands south of Batam& Bintan are a wonderful sailing ground. With volcanic peaks rising in the distance on the larger islands, which rest behind a multitude of tropical islands smaller in sizes and shapes leading to the jump off point for the equator, Pulau Sikeling (N0°08’.00 E104°13’.98), offering protected anchorages and stunning white coral beaches. Passage Races through tropical beauty, clear green waters, sailing past breath-taking panoramas, combined with a sprint race over the equator, makes for the Nongsa Neptune Regatta a yachting event unmatched in the sailing calendar.
