Monsoon Cup Dates Changed
Published: Thursday, 13 November 2014
The Monsoon Cup, held annually in Malaysia, will be held from Feb 10-14, instead of the previously published dates of Nov 26-30. It is the final event in the Alpari World Match Racing Tour. The 10th anniversary of the event will be staged at a new venue in Johor, the southernmost state of Malaysia. Venue details will be released soon.
The change of dates for the Monsoon Cup Malaysia is part of an expansion of the event by Kuala Lumpur-based event organisers Innovatige in partnership with the Malaysian Ministry of Youth and Sports, the NSA (National Sports Council) and MYA (Malaysian Yachting Association).
The Monsoon Cup has now been split into two separate events, Monsoon Cup Terengganu – a regional qualifying event to be held in Pulau Duyong, Terengganu from Nov 19-22, and the Monsoon Cup Malaysia – the World Championship grade event and final stage of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour in Johor from Feb 10-14. The winner of the MC Terengganu will qualify for entry to the final in Johor.
