What a difference a weekend makes! After a really challenging regatta with the Gold Fleet sailors last week, the Silver Fleet sailors had the luxury of a consistent Northerly breeze blowing through Loyang Basin yesterday, allowing for a hassle-free conduct of 4 races for the Blue group.
Sitting at the top of the Blue Group after 4 races is our very own Trevor Ng (SGP 788)! Trevor came into this regatta placed 5th in the latest silver fleet rankings, in addition to a commendable showing at the NSC Cup Series 1 (10th). After a shaky start in Race 1, Trevor quickly found his footing to score 3 bullets from the remaining 3 races. Weekly trainings with the youth sailing programme at Changi Sailing Club had borne fruit – putting him 4 points ahead of 2nd placed Nigel Tan (SGP 4693). Sailing seems to be in the blood, as Trevor’s sister Simone Ng (SGP 786) is not far off in the standings, placing 5th with a total of 16 points. Gerard Tan (SGP 3464), current top seed in the Silver Fleet fared well, placing in the top 3 for all 4 races to finish day 1 with 8 points in 3rd. Just outside the top 3 is Kam Hao Re (SGP 3473). Ranked 20th in the Silver Fleet, he performed superbly yesterday, scoring 14 points from 4 races to slot into 4th at the end of Day 1.
Today we conduct racing for the Yellow Group – CSC will be represented by a total of 11 sailors, many of them racing for the first time. Good luck and fair winds to all competitors.
