The history of Changi Sailing Club, Singapore.
1985 January.

 

Black and white covers were all the rage, but a nice piece by Rosaling Mackenzie depicting the 'new' clubhouse.

 

Inside: the young Ben Tan who won the Asian Fireball Championship in Pattaya! Ben has gone on to become the CEO of Singapore Sailing. 

38 boats took part in the Metro Regatta (that beats today's numbers 6 fold!). 

 

The Wind Rose is most interesting. It shows 40% of the wind was 11-16 knots from true North. We think that beats the current 2016 season by a long way... Global warming is a global warning!

On the cover, one of the first Nacra 5.0's into Singapore. Ho Lay Cheng the owner now resides in New Zealand.

 

Inside... A lovely letter from Jack Gulston one of the pioneers of the Club thanking long time GM Edward for the copy recieved but adding a lot of correction into the fray about the date of establishment (1936). Got to love the Brits! A great tale from Andrew Chan on all his cats and some adventures sailing at CSC. After Andrew purcahsed a new Nacra 5.0, we took him on an adventure sail into Riau Indonesia and gave him double Malaria! He currently owns a Weta trimaran at CS
