Monsoon Cup cheers home favourite

Two-time Malaysian champion Jeremy Koo takes on sailing’s elite at the Monsoon Cup.

At the World Match Racing Tour’s final event in Malaysia, second placed Francesco Bruni of Italy is one win ahead of overall leader Ian Williams after two days of qualifying at the Monsoon Cup.

But one skipper still to make an impression on the scoreboard is the host country’s own Jeremy Koo. After entering the sport by chance recently, Koo has been making waves by popularising the sport among Malaysia’s youth.
