Twilight Series II Race 5 (Final)

With the return of the Haze, our Twilight Series II Finale was somewhat affected, with sailors having to deal with poor visibility and even poorer air quality. Despite these added challenges, it was still a decent turnout of 12 boats for the 5th and final race of Series II.

In the IRC Class, leaders Skybird was joined by returning yachts Waka Tere and Invictus for a 3-way battle. Skybird‘s 2 bullets from Race 3 and 4 put her in the driving seat, as Waka Tere would need a win from race 5 and Skybird to finish 3rd for her to snatch the victory from the Dehler 34. An abysmal start from Skybird left her playing catch-up with the rest of the fleet. Despite the initial setback, she sailed well enough to claim 2nd on corrected time and win the Twilight Series II 1 point ahead of Waka Tere.

The PY fleet boast boats with strong racing pedigree as well, such as Simba and Shardana, both previously competed extensively in the IRC Class. Not surprisingly, these are the 2 boats which finished in 1st and 2nd respectively, with the former also claiming line honours. Southern Light completed the podium in 3rd. In the overall series standings, Southern Light‘s good attendance and 3 podium finishes over 5 races earned her a 3rd place with 15 points. Despite finishing last on Saturday, Brio did enough to secure herself in 2nd on 11 points. PY overall victory went to Simba, sitting pretty on top with a total of 5 points from 4 races.

Scoring the only down-down for Saturday, M23 Baloo from the Cruising Multihull Class bumped into Cicak after casting off his mooring, in a failed attempt to take out the competition before the start. She did well in Saturday’s wind angles, taking line honours and 3rd on corrected time. Coming in 1st and 2nd was Cicak and Witblits, with the former just edging across the line by 27 seconds. Victory in Race 5 concluded a fine run by Team Cicak for this Series, scoring a total of 4 bullets from 5 races to seal her Twilight win with 4 points. 3 podium finishes with a best performance of 2nd in races 2 and 4 from Miss Visayan – coupled with consistent attendance resulted in a well-deserved 2nd overall. Eeepai was the best of the rest, taking 3rd on 25 points.

A poor attendance from the Beach Catamaran and Weta Classes for Series II meant that no prizes were given out yesterday – we look forward to a re-energized fleet from both classes in Series III! Congratulations to all the winners, please see below for Race 5 results and overall Series II standings.

Twilight Series II Race 4

The penultimate race of the Twilight Series II saw a modest participation, with only a total of 10 boats taking part over 3 classes. sorely missing the beach catamaran and weta classes, we hope to see the return of our zippy multihulls on the finale weekend of 14/15 September.

The PY fleet represented the majority of the participants, and it was exciting to see the new owners (Neil & Miranda) of Shardana finally taking her out for the Twilight Race. It was also a delight to see Remington finally getting into the swing of things, scoring a credible 4th on her first Twilight Race, after last week’s last place finish in the Sunday Series Racing. Up top, we see Simba, Shardana and Brio crossing the finish line in that order. This sets up an interesting line-up for the Finale of the Twilight Series II, as Simba takes the driving seat being the only boat in the top 4 with 2 bullets. Brio, Southern Light and Balqis will be pulling out all the stops to ensure she does not get a 3rd bullet this coming Saturday.

In the IRC Class, SkyBird look poised to take the Series II title if close rivals Waka Tere do not turn up on Saturday. Both boats share the same number of bullets after 4 races, but Skybird has the slight edge of also having attended more races.

Buay Kao La and Miss Visayan made it a match race in the Cruising Multihull Class, in the absence of the M23s and Corsair Dash/Sprint Fleet. Unfortunately a poor start and insufficient crew proved an uphill task for the latter, as they struggled to catch the newer and faster Corsair 970 Sport. We anticipate the return of a few more Cruising Multihulls this weekend, to bring the Twilight Series II to an exciting conclusion.

Thank you all Sailors for participating – we look forward to welcoming all past and present racers to return for the Twilight /Sunday Series II finale on 14/15 September.

Twilight Series II Race 3

With it being the summer holidays, National Day just around the corner and some sailors off to the west side in preparation for the Western Circuit Regatta – we see a smaller number of boats taking part in yesterday’s Twilight Series II Race 3.

Despite the small numbers overall, we still managed a very healthy fleet of 11 Keelboats participating in the PY Class! This number was boosted by new entrants Birregurra and Petit Bateau, a Hanse 40 and Esse 750 respectively. Both boats had contrasting starts, with the former taking a cautious approach and the latter executing a near perfect start to leeward. A costly mistake of not reading the Notice of Race and flying her spinnaker in a “White-Sails Only” race rewarded Petit Bateau with a shot of rum and a DSQ for her maiden Twilight Race. Birregurra fared much better, scoring second place 7 minutes behind champions Simba after corrected time. Simba‘s racing pedigree was clear for all to see, as her superior boat speed kept her well ahead of the fleet throughout the race. We look forward to her renewed IRC and return to the Class! Amongst the big boys, little Brio held her own, completing the podium in 3rd, 5 minutes ahead of close rivals Balqis.

Skybird kept the flag flying high for the IRC Class, in the absence of Red Rum, Waka Tere, Invictus, Jong Dee and Born in Fire. She was hardly lonely, enjoying the Twilight together with the PY fleet.

In the Cruising Multihull Class, Cicak, Miss Visayan and Jaza Too had an intense 3-way battle, with the Corsair Sprint (Cicak) managing to grind out line honours and a win on corrected time, besting her 2 close rivals. Jaza Too did just enough to finish 18 seconds ahead of Miss V on corrected time, placing both boats in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Thank you everyone for taking part! We now take a break from Club racing, as we prepare for next week’s Cruise to Tanjung Piayu (9-12 August) and the Western Circuit Regatta (17, 18 & 24 August) on the following weekend. Club racing resumes with the Sunday Series II Race 4 on 1st September 2019.

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 a false start by Jong Dee to take an early lead in the 3-way contest. Unfortunately the lack of winds towards the end of the race and work in the evening meant that Invictus skipper Justin Lean had to forfeit the race and retire prematurely. Series I winners Waka Tere emerged the victor by default, starting their campaign with a bullet. Jong Dee settled for 2nd, left lamenting what could have been if they scored a good start.

We welcome the return of Simba to Club Racing, after a long 1 and a half year break due to boat maintenance and repair. They start this series in PY Class, but are looking to return to IRC in the coming weeks. We also welcome visiting yacht Caminata, skippered by CSC Member, Clive Van Onselen. Visiting for the weekend, Clive had to schedule a Caminata‘s first Twilight Sail with the Club. Withe the 2 boats above, the PY Class sees a total of 7 boats participating. Topping the fleet was little Brio, whose skipper has also returned from a short break in Korea. She sailed well in the light airs to stay ahead of bigger and faster boats like Boreas and Minx, securing a 1st place on handicap and missing out on line honours by 7 seconds! 2nd place was taken by Simba, a deserving result for the returning Dehler. Completing the podium in 3rd 2 weeks in a row is Southern Light, only just sneaking ahead of last week’s Sunday Series Race 1 winner Olmeto after corrected time.

In the Cruising Multihull Class, Cicak made amends for their performance at the Sunday Series, sailing well 3-up to finish ahead of Kaze and Eeepai in 2nd and 3rd respectively. Despite her best efforts, Miss Visayan struggled to break into the top 3, settling for 4th. 2 participants in the Beach Catamaran Class and 2 participants in the Weta Class meant that sailors had to keep a close eye on each other, with very little room for error. Scott McCook draws from his wealth of experience to sail a good race, scoring Gulf‘s first win for the Twilight Series Beach Catamaran Class. Persian Cat‘s new owner Shaun Norris is still getting to know the boat, and we look forward to seeing more of her in the coming races! Tim Jackson’s  Itchy-Go made it 2 wins from 2 weekends, comfortably notching another bullet in the Weta Class. We hope to see more participation moving forward – lets give the regulars a proper challenge!

Thank you all for another great racing weekend, see you next week for Sunday Series II Race 2!

Twilight Series I Race 3 (Finale)

Yesterday’s Twilight Series I Finale was a roller-coaster of emotions and a test of perseverance for the skippers. With winds coming to a near stand-still at some points, sailors had to stay light on their feet and choose their tacks carefully.

The Beach Catamaran and Weta Class were represented by a total of 2 boats, with Persian Cat & Itchy-Go flying the flag for their respective classes. Of late, it seems like sailors from both classes are having a busy schedule – we hope to see their return in Series II!

Cicak and Eeepai were the only 2 Cruising Multihulls in their class, with the former in the driving seat from winning Race 1 & 2. Eeepai sailed well to finish ahead of Cicak in the tricky conditions – but could not put a dent in stopping Cicak’s eventual victory in the Series.

Taking full advantage of their minimal crew on board in the light airs, Boreas (3-up) and Minx (solo) sailed well to finish in 1st and 2nd respectively in the PY Class. It was an extremely close fight for 3rd place in the last stretch to finish as the shifty winds caused positions to reshuffle. When the numbers were punched, Marsh Mellow emerged the best of the rest to claim a well deserved 3rd, completing the podium finishers.

In the IRC Class, Invictus returned from a long hiatus to a convincing victory, keeping things simple on the course and making minimal mistakes. A good start from Red Rum kept them ahead and gave them line honours, but could not shake off Invictus, thus settling for 2nd on handicap. Jong Dee crossing the line just 1 second ahead of Waka Tere made for a thrilling finish between the two, with the latter securing 3rd after corrected time.

Results were starkly different in the Overall Series for both keelboat classes. Despite their bullet in Race 3, Invictus‘s no-show in race 1 and 2 left them in overall 4th. On the other hand, consistency paid off for Jong Dee, as they claimed 2nd in the series despite not winning any of the 3 races. Waka Tere continue their fine run from the NE Monsoon Sailing Festival to win Twilight Series I (IRC Class) with 2 bullets and a total of 5 points.

The PY Class also awards the sailors with good attendance, as 1st and 2nd placed boats were the only 2 boats which participated in all 3 races. To make things more exciting, both New Blue Eyes and Southern Light did not win any of the 3 races and are level on points – resulting in the former winning the Series due to them having 1 more 4th place finish. Sangaree‘s stellar performance in Race 1 and 2 meant that they could still finish in 3rd despite not racing yesterday.

In the Cruising Multihull Class, Cicak‘s consistent attendance also sealed their victory ahead of Eeepai, who could have made it an even closer fight if not for their DNC in Race 1. Poor attendance all round meant that even though Jaza Too only participated in Race 2, she did enough to earn a 3rd place finish and round off the winners.

Congratulations to all winners and thank you everyone for participating in the first Twilight Series for 2019! See you all for this afternoon’s Sunday Series I Finale!

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 I sees the addition of a classic boat in the PY Class. 48 footer Winrose is a beautifully maintained ketch intending to sail in the 2020 Sydney-Hobart Race under the CSC Flag. Skippered by Member David Whitfield and berthed at One Degree 15, the yacht will also take part in our upcoming CSC@Besar Passage Race, logging the necessary miles for her SHR entry qualification. The light winds yesterday did her no favours, resulting in her crew adjourning to the bar early for drinks. The PY Class saw a victorious Sangaree take line honours and the Bullet for race 2, holding a very comfortable lead over Bapsy and Brio in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

A false start made it an uphill task for Jong Dee to catch up with Waka Tere and Red Rum – leaving her out of the podium in the IRC Class. Sailing with 2 up gave Waka Tere the advantage in these light airs, securing her 2nd bullet out of 2 races, putting her in driving seat to win the Twilight Series I on 1st June. Red Rum sailed with 3 new crew on board today, who undoubtedly experienced the authentic CSC hospitality at the bar later in the evening.

It was a sweet result for Cicak yesterday, scoring a win ahead of strong contenders Jaza Too, Eeepai and Baloo in the Cruising Multihull Class. We were pleasantly surprised by a visit from an old friend and ex-member, Nicolas Gillier (remember Corsair Singaloc?). Nicolas crewed for Graham Horn on Jaza Too, earning themselves 1st runner-up. Eeepai completed the podium finishers in 3rd.

Doubling their numbers from the last race, we are pleased to see not 1 but 2 Wetas on the Twilight Course! Tim and Antonio of Itchy-Go and The Striped One made it a little match race between the 2, matching each other tack for tack. Glad to see the return of The Striped One, hopefully more will turn up for the final race on the 1st of June.

Vesak Day celebrations commence next week, with 4 boats cruising up to Nongsa Point Marina for the long weekend. We welcome 10 teams from Changi Sailing Club, SAF Yacht Club, NTU Sailing Club, SMU Sailing Club & NUS Varsity Sailing Club over the following weekend for the CSC One-Design Keelboat Championships.

Club racing resumes on 1st & 2nd June, marking the end of both Sunday Series & Twilight Series I. See you then!

Twilight Series I Race 1

13 April 2019

 

As we begin to see the change in the monsoon winds, conditions become fluky and unpredictable. Right from the early hours of the day, the wind did not appear as predicted by the various online apps.

But very fortunate for us, though light, the wind crept in from the easterly direction as boats were being readied for the 4 pm start. With the incoming tide and the shifty wind direction, the choice of the RED course was called.

A poor turnout in the multihull class saw the Trimaran, the beach cat and the Weta represented by only one boat each. Tim Hill in Cicak, Tim Jackson in Itchy-Go and Chris Waddington in Persian Cat; thank you guys for keeping the flag flying. In true sportsmanship they went round the course with the clock as their only competitor.

As the race progressed, the wind freshened to approximately 8 knots and came in from the easterly direction. The smaller boats could be seen being knocked over by the occasional gust.

The number three seemed to have plagued the IRC class; only Jong Dee, Waka Tere and Born in Fire were at the start. Paul Kendall in Jong Dee sailed very well to the conditions and kept the lead throughout the race. However, Kurt in Waka, trailed not too far behind keeping within the time margin and took the first place off Paul’s hands by a very narrow 2-seconds after corrected time. The fire wasn’t burning too brightly for Pascal in BIF as she seemed to have trouble trying to keep up with the other two. We hope to see the return of Shardana, Red Rum and Invictus for the coming IRC races; maybe even Skybird???

Great support in the PY category; 8 boats made it to the start and as usual the tussle for a good start was on everyone’s mind. John Boers in Sangaree short off the line in good speed and position and led the PYers all throughout the race. As the winds became more stable, blowing easterly, the stretch from Squance to Changi turned into a long windward leg. With an almost ideal Twilight condition, John Boers in Sangaree took line in the PY class and also finishing first after corrected time. A well sailed Boreas helmed by Pepe Yabe came in second and Kevin Harris sailed Temptress of Down to the third spot.

Welcome back Choy as he had just completed his two week reserve training in the army, back to you!!

Twilight Series III Finale

The Twilight Series III Finale saw a total of 11 Keelboats, 5 Cruising Multihulls and 4 Beach Catamarans taking part. Going into the finale, participants were quietly hopeful for a good blow to finish the series on a high. Thankfully, a north-easterly breeze set in at the start, carrying the sailors on an exciting first leg up to changi buoy. It was however a tactical challenge for participants as they had to contend in varying wind conditions over the course of the race, from an initial north-easterly winds to shifts all the way to a north-westerly direction. This coupled with patchy winds scattered throughout the course kept skippers and tacticians on their toes.

In the Beach Catamaran Class, Nigel Signal’s Stray Catz led the fleet to secure his first bullet for the series, leading Persian Cat and the 2 Wetas to take victory for the final race. Their victory consolidated their position for the Series, finishing 6 points ahead of Persian Cat and 11 points ahead of Madfish II in 3rd. Great to see the Wetas starting to take part in our Club Series! Despite losing the series, Persian Cat did enough to take the overall Twilight 2018 title, winning Madfish II on tie-break. Stray Catz completed the podium in 3rd.

The Cruising Multihulls went into the final race with Cicak and Eeepai tied on points, the 6th race being the deciding race. The latter displayed a dominant performance to finish the race with line honours and a bullet to seal their victory in the Series 1 point ahead of Cicak. Witblits did well to finish 3rd in the 6th and final race for the series, but poor attendance resulted in an overall 6th place finish in the Series. Despite their false start and eventual 4th in the final race, Miss Visayan’s consistent performance rewarded them with 3rd in the Series, a good result for their first Twilight campaign! For the overall 2018 Twilight leaderboard, Eeepai’s win reflects their final standings, beating 4-time defending champions Cicak to claim their first challenge trophy. Witblits’s 6th place finish in Series III was good enough for a 3rd overall in the Twilight 2018 standings.

A good start powered Temptress of Down into an early lead ahead of the 7-strong PY fleet on Saturday, taking full advantage of the fresh breeze. They however failed to consolidate their position as Sangaree clawed back from a disappointing start to claim line honours and eventual 2nd place after corrected time. Southern Light thrived in Saturday’s conditions, staying close to the leaders to earn a well-deserved bullet for the Series, relegating Temptress of Down to 3rd. Southern Light’s bullet leapfrogged them to 2nd in the Twilight Series III standings, 1 point ahead of Minx in 3rd. Despite their disappointing performance in the final race, New Blue Eye‘s 5th place finish was good enough to fend off rivals and claim victory in Series III on 17 points. This in turn also rewarded them with the overall 2018 Twilight PY Class Challenge Trophy, staying 1 point ahead of Minx on 8 points. Southern Light‘s 2nd place finish in Series III helped to secure their 3rd place with 10 poitns in the Twilight overall leaderboard, rounding off the winners for PY.

Shardana returns to Club Racing in style, displaying a good start to claim an early lead and eventual line honours in the IRC Class. The excitement however took place amongst the remaining 3 boats of the fleet, as fierce rival resulted in a thrilling shuffle of positions throughout the race. Waka Tere emerged the best of the rest, claiming 2nd across the line and on handicap. Jong Dee bounced back from a bad start to claw her way back and finish just ahead of Sky Bird. However this effort was not enough to dethrone Sky Bird, who eventually claimed 3rd on handicap. Her 3rd place finish also sealed her victory in Series III for the IRC Class, finishing 4 points ahead of Jong Dee after 6 races. Despite her absence in the remaining 3 races for the series, Invictus did enough to secure a 3rd in the Series. In the overall Twilight 2018 standings, Jong Dee took home the IRC Twilight 2018 challenge trophy, winning Invictus on tie-break. Red Rum’s 3rd place finish marks a good year for the boat, a good news coming after their successful campaign at the Raja Muda.

Congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to all the sailors who joined us throughout the year!

Twilight Series III Race 5

Another weekend in frustrating conditions, as the conflicting weather systems left sailors with a challenging course for race 5 of this Twilight Series.

With only 2 boats in the IRC Class, it was a sweet victory for Sky Bird as they notched their first bullet and line honours ahead of Jong Dee. This allows Sky Bird to stretch their lead and strengthen their position 3 points ahead of Jong Dee going into the finale on 1st December.

7 boats contested for podium in the PY class, and it was a close fight at the top amongst the light and nippy boats. Balqis’s gamble paid off handsomely, as they chose to commit early in the race to sail high and close to Pulau Ubin. This allowed her to secure the bullet and line honours, comfortably ahead of new entrant Brio and single-handed Big Bad Wolf in 2nd and 3rd respectively. In the series standings, New Blue Eyes sits on top after 1 discard – a 4 point buffer between them and Minx in 2nd place. Big Bad Wolf’s consistent attendance in the series is reflected in the results, placing 3rd currently.

Jaza Too returns to Twilight Racing in style, clinching their first bullet for this series, seconds ahead of Eeepai and Miss Visayan in 2nd and 3rd respectively. Despite their 4th placing, Cicak is tied on points with Eeepai in the Series, setting the stage for an exciting finale next Saturday. Miss Visayan trail the leaders by 5 points, sitting comfortably in 3rd for the Series.

The Beach Catamarans were had a pair of Wetas sailing with them yesterday, a refreshing addition to the fleet. sailing on a provisional handicap, the Wetas do well in the light airs, finishing in 1st & 2nd respectively. On official score, Persian Cat sailed well to beat Stray Catz on handicap, scoring their 1st bullet for the series. Their positions are switched in the Series III overall standings, as Stray Catz leads by 5 points, scoring 4 second-place finishes to put them in good stead for the final race.

Thank you all for participating in the Twilight Race! enjoy the photos and see you next weekend for the Twilight and Sunday Series Finals!

Twilight Series III Race 4

The weather during yesterday’s Twilight Race showed signs of the North-Easterly Monsoon trying to settle in, giving sailors a nice beat up to Changi Buoy on the first leg.

Jong Dee, Emmanuel II and Southern Light were a bit too eager – incurring an OCS and subsequent penalty, costing them valuable time at the start. Despite the blunder, Jong Dee was quick to recover, catching up with Notus and Sky Bird at Changi Buoy. She eventually crossed with line honours, and clinched victory in the IRC Class by a slim margin of 8 seconds over Sky Bird on corrected time.

In the 7-strong PY Class, Temptress of Down had a fantastic start, wasting no time in establishing a good lead over the rest of the pack. Sangaree did well to bounce back from a couple of too-close encounters to finish just outside of podium. Temptress of Down slipped to 3rd when the wind died down on the final leg, allowing the chasing boats to close the gap. Sapphire Star sailed a superb solo race to finish 2nd on handicap, missing out on 1st place by 2 seconds to Boreas. Nanyang Technological University Sailing Club notched their 1st bullet ever while sailing Boreas in our Twilight Races, congratulations!

The Cruising Multihulls witnessed a crucial mistake by leaders Miss Visayan, as she failed to keep CSC 1 to starboard while sailing down from Changi Buoy. It was Team Cicak‘s gain as they secured their 2nd bullet for the Series, with Eeepai completing the podium as runner-up.

Thank you all for taking part in the 4th race of our Twilight Series! Looking forward to more North-Easterly Winds over the next few months!
