"The trick is to love what you do and it will never feel like work!"...
Most of the time, it's a blurry line between what is work and what is not. Guess we are the lucky ones then! Mind you, we've been 'playing' at this since 1990 and it's never easy but always enjoyable.
Our home base since the Hobie days in the 1980's, Singapore's untouched corner at Changi SC.
Helping owners get use to their boats. On this occasion, discovering Kusu Island including the night view of Singapore's CBD.
Our recce' trip to White Sands Island, Indonesia looking for a suitable base to bring the Corsair Owners Group too. We make it look easy but it's hard work!
While it is fun, it does require a lot of time to go looking for suitable locations. The Indonesian Archipelago has 16,500 islands so where to start? At the top!
We made this recce' in the middle of the SW Monsoon so we had ideal sailing weather. Flat seas, perfect visibility and the whole place to ourselves!
out sail stuff!
Getting the morning sailing crew out of bed and onto their boats for coffee at the beach.
Here's our youngest helm on a Corsair trimaran. Right out of the Optimist Course when he said the Optimist was to slow and couldn't go anywhere. His first big adventure - Singapore-Batam Island, Indonesia and back. Great adventure when you are 11!
Gunboat 60 delivery Singapore to Xiamen
Chance in a lifetime to spend 16 days on a Gunboat 60. Our involvement with the RAW 30 trimaran from the same factory as the much heralded GeeBee opened up the opportunity to get onboard and so, why not. It just happened to be at the peak of the SEA Haze issue and visibility from Singapore all the way up to Thailand was a paltry 500 metres- lovely! As if the poor visibility wasn't bad enough, we had to didge a typhoon enroute and so we got to see Hainan Island - China's Hawaii!
Life is meant to be an adventure!
