CSC Twilight Series I 2024 (Race 4)

If you were just observing from afar, Race 4 of the Twilight Series I would have seemed uneventful and perhaps somewhat ordinary. But if you speak to the sailors you’d find out a series of happenings which were anything but ordinary. Fierce battles at the start/finish, man overboard situations and mark-rounding tussles made it an […]

CSC Sunday Series I 2024 (Race 4)

We welcome back the delightful doldrums – the most testing conditions yet for the boats in this series. At one point, the dinghies were experiencing winds from the east and our participating boats were receiving winds from the west, all at the same time. Paired with the scorching heat and a strong outgoing current after […]

CSC Twilight Series I 2024 (Race 3)

The last weekend of April ushered in the inter-monsoon conditions, with fickle winds and sporadic showers accompanying the ongoing heatwave across south-east asia. Thankfully for the sailors, the 3rd race of the Twilight series had sufficient winds from a north-easterly direction for the multihull fleet to complete the full course and carrying the keelboat fleet […]

CSC Sunday Series I 2024 (Race 3)

With the NE Monsoon well and fully departed, sailors are left with the uncertainty of the inter-monsoon season – complete with thundery showers and fickle winds. The day started with becalmed conditions, and a gentle easterly breeze saved the start from being delayed. Due to the light winds, a pennant 1 course was chosen, keeping […]

CSC Twilight Series I 2024 (Race 2)

The Twilight Series continues to enjoy exceptional weather, as the 18 boats participating yesterday breezed through the course in a comfortable 8-10 knots of wind from the North East. Amidst the rain on Friday and now becalmed conditions today, Saturday’s sunshine and fresh breeze was a window of opportunity enjoyed by all. Some may have […]

CSC Sunday Series I (Race 2)

Another day in paradise. With the UV index hitting extreme highs in recent weeks, the unexpected North-Easterly blow was a much welcomed relief for the sailors. The fleet was represented by a modest mix of 7 keelboats and 3 multihulls, with a number of the regulars taking a break from the intense NE Monsoon season, […]

Bintan Regatta 2024 (Day 2)

Our final day of racing in Bintan is officially over! From the strong camaraderie shared both on water and on shore to the captivating entertainment at Lagoi Bay, this long weekend is certainly one to remember for all of us. Today’s weather conditions were the opposite of yesterday’s. When we departed Bandar Bentan Telani, the […]

Bintan Regatta 2024 (Day 1)

Well, perhaps we spoke too early about the great conditions we expected this weekend. The weather played tricks on us instead, teasing us with its inconsistency throughout the day. As a result, our initial plan to pump out 4 races was cut short to 3. Missing out on a passage race today was unfortunate, but […]

2nd Bintan Regatta 2024 (Pre-Event Report)

Co-organised by Bintan Resort Cakrawala and Changi Sailing Club, the Bintan Regatta makes a triumphant return for its second edition, promising an exhilarating weekend of sailing in the open waters of Lagoi Bay. Most of us can recall the setbacks we faced in its inaugural year; with thunderstorms and rough seas, the foul weather called […]
