'Work'

"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.

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!

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!

Here's our oldest helm on a Corsair trimaran. The flying doctor Michael has been sailing with us since, we can't remember! Michael is on his 6th boat cycle with us. Now at 92 years of youth, Michael enjoys the flying lounge on his Corsair 970, every weekend!
