These yachts berthed in at Danga Bay Marina about three days ago in the Sail Malaysia rally, which is supported by Tourism Malaysia.
More than 25 yachts from the United States, Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Scotland are participating in the Sail Malaysia-Discover Malaysia by Sea rally and will start by living the lifestyle of Johoreans.
They will be learning the zapin dance, eat laksa Johor, nasi ambang and also learn about the history of Johor while discovering the vast diversity in heritage, religion and culture in Malaysia.
