the Malaysian monsoon unleashed on competitors in Kuala Terengganu providing a solid 15-20 knot breeze from the north-east. The breezes kept both the competitors and umpires busy with 4 penalties issued in the Final alone.


Chief Umpire Shane Borrell commented that Japanese competitor Hiroshi Miura suffered from an unfortunate, “match racing accident” today in his match against Marty Kaye. Miura made a split-second error in the fresh conditions and collided with Kaye, creating a hole in the hull of his Foundation 36 boat. Miura was found to be at fault because he failed to give Kaye room to keep clear. Kaye went on to win the match and claim third place overall, relegating Miura to fourth.

Swinton and his team revelled in the windier conditions, but showed their versatility conceding only one match throughout the duration of the regatta. Keith put his victory down to, “a lot of experience having done a lot of regattas throughout the year, and good teamwork. The guys on my team helped me make good decisions.” Looking forward to the Monsoon Cup, Keith said that, “having a close final helped develop his strategy leading into the Monsoon Cup.” Keith’s international match racing experience this year will prepare him well for the challenging competition ahead.

Action at the 2008 Monsoon Cup will commence on the 3rd of December with 12 international teams descending on Terengganu for the fourth edition of the prestigious event.
