Goto AY Day 1 Race ReportNov 28th – Pulau Duyong, Terengganu: Match racing is a very tough game to play. Boat against boat they either win or loose, there is no second place. Experienced skippers take one race at a time and whether they win or loose don’t let their emotions get the better of them and get the crew ready for the next race. These were Dato Peter Gilmour’s words of advice to the six teams vying to become the Malaysian champions at this mornings skippers briefing. There are 3 teams that have won here before and despite only two teams in line for the championship and the enviable place at the Monsoon Cup, they are all starting on a new page and the pressure is on to perform.

By AsianYachting MultiMedia
Nov 27th – Pulau Duyong, Terengganu: After 3 rounds of the MMRC it all comes down to this final stage in Terengganu. The defending champion, Jeremy Koo’s (KFC Malaysia/KRT) came out strong, winning the first two stages in Lumut and Pt Klang but dipped out at the semi final stage in Johor. This opened the door for Masyuri Rahmat’s (RMNMRT 1) to come though and win the stage plus be within striking distance (3 points) of the overall leader with one round to go. At stake is the elusive spot to represent Malaysia at the season ending Alpari World Match Racing Tour (AWMRT) – Monsoon Cup, starting in 7 days time. The fourth and final stage of the Malaysian Match Racing Circuit (MMRC) is held on the same boats and waters at the home of the Monsoon Cup. The main aim of the MMRC is to hone the tactical racing skills of Malaysian sailors and give them a chance to match the International lineup plus the confidence to win some races at the Monsoon Cup.
