PUTRAJAYA, 17 AUG 2009 – Thirty three participants, aged between 18 to 63, attended the inaugural Monsoon Sailing School (MSS) from the 14 - 17 August at the Putrajaya Maritime Centre. The full on 4-day in house clinic gave competitive sailors and sailing enthusiasts the opportunity to acquire the finer skills and experience technical match racing maneuvers. From the very first classroom session, MSS Head Coach Bill Gladstone from the USA had them living, eating and breathing match racing. Most sailors tend to shy away from match racing as they don't fully understand the starting techniques. Clear, precise and easy to understand instructions plus practicing these maneuvers on the water with world-class coaches made the school a resounding success. By the end of the course the teams were successfully match racing like seasoned professionals on the F36 racing yachts specially brought down from Terengganu for the clinic. Some teams attended the clinic as part of their preparation for the Monsoon Cup Malaysian Open Qualifiers while others were there to become competent match race sailors and race officers. Further discussions are on going to form teams that will be vying for a spot to compete in the Monsoon Cup from 1-6 December 2009 at Pulau Duyong, Terengganu. AsianYachting was there in force and still working on forming the AY Racing Team.
