Since the inaugural Monsoon Cup in 2005 this event has become the ultimate leg of the prestigious World Match Racing Tour.
The Terengganu Equestrian Resort is a state of the art equestrian facility located facing the South China Sea in Kuala Terengganu next to the Floating mosque (Masjid Terapung).
One of the most sought after golfing experiences in Terengganu is the Kuala Terengganu Golf Resort located 10km north of Kuala Terengganu.
The scenic Kenyir Lake is not there just for the tourists to admiringly photograph but is also a great Terengganu sport location where canoeing and kayaking are just 2 activities waiting to be enjoyed.
The rainforests tracks surrounding Lake Kenyir provide an exciting off road Terengganu sport experience that has been used in the Terengganu International 4WD Rainforest Challenge and the Kenyir International Mountain Bike Challenge.
Other Terengganu golf courses of note are Ibai Golf and Country Club (Kuala Terengganu) and the Desa Rantau Petronas Golf Club (Kertah, Kemaman).
The Terengganu equestrian resort features facilities for equestrian sports, Polo, indoor games, first class accommodation, veterinary clinic and a training centre.
The Terengganu equestrian resort has 116 stables with most of the horses owned by the Sultan Of Terengganu and it is a great place to learn horse riding with the additional bonus of the kids being able to learn on the much smaller ponies.
The Monsoon Cup has created great interest in the sailing fraternity and because it is the last race on the tour it will determine who is the best sailing team in the world on a accumulated points basis with all the subsequent press focus that this generates.
The World Match Racing Tour is only one of three events sanctioned by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) with "Special Event" status alongside the America's Cup and the Volvo Ocean Race.
The Awana Kijal Golf, Beach and Spa 5 star Resort offers a relaxing but long 6520 metre course that is not too challenging in a leisurely resort setting.
The Kelab Golf Desa Dungun course is a fairly flat par 72 covering 6021 metres with a pleasant sea breeze making it a more comfortable 18 holes.
The 18 hole 6,283 metre course is a par 72 set on 198 acres of former swamp land and its tight fairways are designed to challenge the golfing prowess of most players.
