After a great preparation last week in Perth narrowly losing out 3-2 to Ben Ainslie in the semi final of the Australia Cup, we have arrived in Malaysia in good spirits with a very good shot at being crowned the 2009 World Match Racing Champions.
Racing will be getting underway at 10am local time everyday from 2nd December, so all live action will go from around 3pm - 11 pm NZ time and from 2am - 10am European time.
There is a huge media presence here at the Monsoon Cup 2009 and there is bound to be fireworks on the water so please feel free to check out the action.
2nd December sees us start the round robin with a match against Damien Iehl within the hour, followed by an opening ceremony before racing resumes at around 4pm local time (9pm NZ) and sees us up against Magnus Homberg, followed by local team Hazwan.
