Day 2 of The 21st Singapore Straits Regatta

29January 2015
Day 2 served up a packed racing day, with 3 races, in a moderate breeze


Welcome to Singapore and One 15 Degree Marina on Sentosa Island, where the action from the 21st Singapore Straits Regatta kicked off today for the SB20 fleet. The regatta is also the annual SB20 Asia Pacific Championships. For some, results will also count towards qualification for the South East Asian Games 2015.

The SB20 fleet has enjoyed an upwards growth trend, since its first year racing here. 2015 sees a multinational line up of 19 boats. The competition is expected to be close - and tough.

The SB20 is a one design class – so the boats are the same and of equal performance. Team work and sailors’ skills are the essential ingredients that will produce winning results in this 3-person boat. With lots of seasoned campaigners in the fleet, the teams can be sure their mental and physical limits will be tested.

Day 2 served up a packed race day, with 3 races, in a moderate breeze. The race course was set against the dramatic backdrop of Singapore’s stunning buildings. Some great racing action - as the fleet surged off the start line trying to claim the early lead. A gusty and shifty breeze – so hunt out the advantages and you would be ahead. The fleet were packed together, ensuring really tight and exciting mark rounds, and one on one boat battles were the order of the day.

A great start for team Werner, skippered by Johannes Babendererde, who scored a third, a bullet and a second, to take the upper hand over the fleet. Only one point behind is Glasgow Kiss – Nils Razmilovic’s team – from their steady performance.

A great day for Jovina Choo – 420 Class silver medalist at the South East Asian Games 2007– who sits in 3rd overall. She looks determined to do whatever is possible to represent her country one more time. Jovina and her team sit just 1 point ahead of TARA, skippered by Jervis Tilly. Early days on the leaderboard line-up.

After a challenging day on the water, teams headed back ashore for some rest and relaxation, ready for another demanding day of racing tomorrow. Don’t miss it!
