The boys at redline racing have arrived safely in Terengganu Malaysia for the 2014 Monsoon Cup where the winner will qualify for the final event of the Alpari World Match Racing Tour. The team is treated like royalty with a team hostess, private meeting room, team driver to and from the accommodation and unlimited food and drink provided by the event organisers.
With the monsoon season just starting we have been inundated with heavy rainfall in the afternoons making dry clothes a luxury item worth fighting for after racing. Each night we walk/run through the rain to find the healthiest looking food centre for our dinner this is a good opportunity to breath in the culture.
From the racing side, the team have successfully rounded day one off with 4 wins and 1 loss. The strong tides coupled with the rain runoff have made it difficult to negotiate the 36 foot yachts in tight tactical situations. The team is looking to come our firing tomorrow for the final races of round robin 1 and round robin 2. Stay tuned and we hope to bring some on water photos soon.
