Bintan Regatta 2023 (27 & 28 Jan)

With the North East Monsoon scheduled to blow strong and true for the period of January to March, Changi Sailing Club was excited to organized a new event at a new location – Lagoi Bay, Bintan. As part of the Club’s efforts to retain the Nongsa Regatta sailing dates, the Bintan Regatta was conceived as […]

Hangover Race 2023

Every year we joke about how sailors should be seriously hungover to qualify for the Hangover Race. This year, we believe it was extra authentic, as the Race Committee sounded like he had one on the VHF Radio when giving instructions to the fleet of 13. Though the winds could not compare to what we […]

NYE Twilight Race 2022

2022 had been a great year for sailing at CSC: total 57 sailing events, 6 events from the annual NE Monsoon Sailing Festival, 54 Ambassadors Cup Participants and the overall revival of sailing post-pandemic. We kick-off the NYE Countdown Party Celebrations with a Twilight Race, a tradition we’ve started a few years back. The race […]

CSC Optimist Championships 2022 (Gold) Day 4

Day 4 – we finally started the day without a single drop of rain! With only two races scheduled (Final & Medal Race), sailors were looking relaxed and unfazed in their morning preparations. Winds came on time again from a North-North-Easterly direction, albeit a little light. The Final Race was the first event on the […]

CSC Optimist Championships 2022 (Gold) Day 3

What a day! With winds arriving on time and from the same direction, Race Organizers wasted no time to deploy the course markers in preparation for the remaining 3 races of the CSC Optimist Championships 2022 opening series. Isaac (3104) consolidated his position on top with a total of 36 points, despite registering one of […]

CSC Optimist Championships 2022 (Gold) Day 2

The light drizzle that plagued the course for the whole day turned out to be inconsequential – as Race Organizers completed 4 races in a consistent North – North-Easterly breeze. With sufficient wind and manpower, the IODA course came into play, offering a different flavour of racing for the sailors. Day 2 jumbled up the […]

CSC Optimist Championships 2022 (Gold) Day 1

Having experienced wet weather, unpredictable and light wind conditions during the Silver Fleet Championships last week, some volunteers and race officials were less-than-optimistic; not getting their hopes up for this week’s CSC Optimist Championships 2022 (Gold). A total of 70 participants registered for this event, with a few sailors absent due to overseas competitions and […]

CSC Optimist Championships 2022 (Silver) Day 3

After 2 days of challenging conditions, sailors finally got to enjoy some consistent winds from the North-East on the final day of racing. It was however short-lived, as the breeze waned in the mid-afternoon, leaving many sailors with an unfortunate DNF score for race 7. With 7 races completed, all participants were allowed to discard […]

CSC Optimist Championships 2022 (Silver) Day 2

Day 2 of the CSC Optimist Championships yielded more races, to the relief of race organizers. After abandoning the first start due to the lack of wind, a steady north-easterly breeze arrived later in the afternoon, allowing the race committee to register 3 races for the Silver fleet. The strong currents wrecked havoc on the […]
