If you are on a sailing holiday in Malaysia, then it won’t have escaped your attention that 16th September is Malaysia Day!

  • Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak and Singapore all joined together to create the new Malaysia.
  • The new federation was planned to begin on the 1st June, but was held up due to objections from neighbouring countries Indonesia and the Philippines.
  • Since 2010, Malaysia Day is now a public holiday.
