Monsoon Cup 2008 Terengganu
3rd – 7th December 2008
Venue – Duyong Island , Terengganu . Malaysia
Pulau Duyong is an island in the mouth of Terengganu River in the state of Terengganu, Malaysia. Previously, it was divided into Pulau Duyong Besar and the smaller Pulau Duyong Kecil, but sedimentation and reclamation have united it as well as changed its coastline substantially. A seaward extension has been developed into the Heritage Bay Resort which hosts the annual Monsoon Cup yacht race.
Pulau Duyong used to be the residence of scholar Tok Syeikh Duyong (1802-1889), who was respected by the palace as well as the people, and his descendants, and was a seat of religious learning. The Kota Lama Duyong (Duyong Old Fort) is a remnant of his era.
