Sunday Series II Race 2 (14 July)

Just when we thought the winds have settled into a consistent South-Westerly direction, sailors were greeted with a gusty South-Easterly breeze, putting them through a patchy pennant 4 course. In the absence of regulars and close rivals Red Rum (away for the RSYC Regatta) and Born in Fire, Jong Dee and Invictus were the only […]

Twilight Series II 2019 (Race 1)

The Twilight Series II 2019 got off to a wet wet start, as sailors were greeted with a refreshing shower on the first leg towards Changi Buoy. The east-south-easterly breeze gave participants a nice initial windward beat, complete with shifty and patchy winds. Leading the IRC class was none other than Invictus, who capitalized on […]

Sunday Series II (Race 1)

After a month-long hiatus, sailors were raring to return to racing! A gentle south-westerly breeze took sailors up to Tekong Buoy and back, but not without challenges. Offshore winds and airplane downdrafts meant that winds were shifty and unpredictable in the vicinity of CAAS2, resulting in a shuffle of positions across all classes. In the […]

CSC@Besar Regatta 2019 (Day 3)

The third and final day of racing around the beautiful islands of Mersing brought sailors around Rawa and back, but not without putting the participants through a lull for the first hour after the start. Flying a pennant 4 was a risky decision which eventually paid off for race organizers, with a consistent Southerly breeze […]

CSC@Besar Regatta 2019 (Day 2)

Day 2 of racing took sailors on the Tiger Challenge, sending participants on a beautiful passage to Harimau and back. With it being the longest course available, the race committee needed the wind gods to cooperate to ensure sailors returned to the bar before nightfall. Luckily for everyone, the winds delivered, blowing strong and true […]

CSC@Besar Regatta 2019 (Day 1)

Crystal clear waters and a gentle South-Westerly breeze greeted sailors this morning, an encouraging start to day 1 of the Series racing at Pulau Besar. With the recent winds still uncertain, race committee played it cautious with the course, displaying a pennant 1 for both the IRC and PY classes. Pennant 1 takes sailors around […]

CSC@ Besar Regatta 2019 (Passage Race)

The 6th CSC@Besar Regatta’s Passage Race up to Pulau Besar could be renamed “A Series of Unfortunate Events” – as the event ruthlessly takes many casualties in various forms. Starting with an early surrender from the mighty Sangaree, her campaign ended even before the start of the Passage Race – due to a lost propeller […]
