Singapore Straits Regatta fast approaching

Singapore Straits Regatta 2012 AsianYachting.com
The inaugural Singapore Straits Regatta took place in 1995. A brainchild of pioneers of sailing in Singapore, the event saw Raffles Marina, Nongsa Point Marina, and Changi Sailing Club coming together with Singapore Sailing Federation to organize this landmark event.

In 1996, the Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy was donated by Republic of Singapore Yacht Club (RSYC) as the Challenge Trophy for the Perpetual Cup Series comprising the three anchors of the Asian Sailing Circuit – The Raja Muda International Regatta, Phuket King’s Cup and the Singapore Straits Regatta.

The growth of the boating industry and developments in Singapore has also seen clubs added to the Singapore Straits Regatta Council. Joining the founding clubs were Singapore Armed Forces Yacht Club (in 2005), ONE°15 Marina Club and Marina at Keppel Bay (both in 2011). The coming together of all stakeholders in Singapore sailing clubs signals the strong camaraderie and collective drive to promote the sport. The annual fixture in the Asian Yachting circuit has since come to be famed for its blend of Singaporean and Indonesian flavour, being the only regatta that brings the yachts and sailors to clubs on both sides of the Straits. A truly unique regatta that presents a myriad of sailing conditions and experiences.

For 2013, the Singapore Straits Regatta continues its good course with more than 36 boats competing from around the world. From One Design boats to big sailing yachts, fierce battles are expected in all fleets.
