Vesak Day Nongsa Cruise 2019

We were blessed with a rare long weekend due to Vesak Day celebrations, the perfect opportunity for a short getaway to Nongsa Point Marina & Resort, Batam. 3 was the magic number – as 3 boats, 3 couples and 3 families departed CSC moorings for Batam on Saturday, 18th May. Immigrations & Customs was a […]

Twilight Series I Race 2

Sailing at this time of the year can be frustrating, and is a great test of patience and resilience. Sailors were once again faced with the challenging task of navigating the course in a roller-coaster of wind conditions, with some eventually surrendering and putting the boat to bed early. Race 2 of our Twilight Series […]

Sunday Series I Race 3

It was another weekend of waiting and hoping for some breeze to fill in, as the morning and early afternoon was a struggle to make any headway for all sailors, beginners and racers alike. The 3rd race of the Sunday Series started in near-nothing glassy conditions, with what little tide and wind pushing them across […]

Easter Weekend Cruise 19-21 April 2019

SailFest Regatta Day 2

Back with sore and aching muscles after a full day of racing on Day 1, some sailors looked visibly tired making their way down the jetty to prepare their boats on Sunday Morning. The winds delivered on time yet again, but possibly a tad lighter in strength compared to Day 1. Needing to win races […]
