Monsoon Cup 2005

A light southerly wind was blowing this morning over Kuala Terengganu forcing a two and a half hour postponement after which the wind shifted around to the North and increased to 8 knots. Three flights needed to be completed to finish off the round robin stage and from there the top eight advance to the quarterfinal round and the bottom four are eliminated.
The quarterfinal pairings at the ISAF Grade 1 Monsoon Cup, the 50th event of the Swedish Match Tour, are set.

Chris DICKSON won the round robin with a 9-2 record, followed by Magnus HOLMBERG, 8-3, Dean BARKER, 8-3, Russell COUTTS, 7-4, Ian WILLIAMS, 7-4, Peter GILMOUR, 6-5, Staffan LINDBERG, 6-5, and Bjorn Hansen, 5-6.

The pairings in the top half of the quarterfinals are DICKSON versus HANSEN and COUTTS versus WILLIAMS. In the bottom half HOLMBERG faces LINDBERG and BARKER races GILMOUR.

Each match is first to three points. The winners advance to the semifinals and the losers are eliminated.
