And that’s how you end the year with a blast!
Back to back events for our CSC Youth Sailing Programme the past weekend. A memorable journey to the island on Saturday, 18 November and competitive dinghy racing on Sunday, 19 November.
Cruise to Coney Island – It was a perfect day for a passage sailing to the island. Sailors enjoyed the close reach along the Johor Straits together with the current pushing them in favour to their destination.
An hour and a half sailing for the young sailors in their Optimists, Pacer and other class of boat. The cruise was joined by few boat owners who were supporting the young ones on their way up to the island.
Enjoyed their “resort” feel like lunch time and swimming around the boats and enjoying companion with their friends, a good time to catch up in a different environment.
After lunch, sailors/boat owners did their part to maintain a cleanliness in the island, a beach clean-up, gathering floating garbage and collected more than what we have expected.
With much enjoyment great feeling to contribute on their small way, our little sailors were happy to be involved in this meaningful journey and a memories to keep as they grow up.
Thank you very much to all the sailors/boat owners and parents too who joined us and made their share in this great initiative to keep our waters clean.
In addition to this, sailors also enjoyed their journey back to the club with a solid Northeasterly wind! A very good wind, good weather and happy moments, what else can you ask for?
We look forward to next year’s cruise! Can’t wait where to go!
