Sail the World Weekend

SingaporeSailing's Secretary-General Edwin LOW and Executive Director Andrew SANDERS flagged off the race off Singapore's National Sailing Centre at 14:30.
The sailors took the opportunity today to bring their family members and friends out sailing, followed by cleaning up the nearby shores and seas.

The younger Optimist sailors were also treated to rides on the 420, 470 and Lasers. Family members on shore did their part by preparing the food for the potluck and bbq session for those who had a hard day's sailing and cleaning!

'Cheers to ISAF Centenary and SingaporeSailing wishes ISAF more centuries of sailing!'

Thank you again for helping ISAF celebrate 100 years of sailing - let's get out there and Sail the World!

"I am very proud to be President of the International Sailing Federation as we celebrate 100 years. What is evident is that the past one hundred years mark a period of vibrant and exciting growth for sailing. A period when the spirit of solidarity, friendship and passion for sailing has prevailed over borders, religions, genders and cultures. This weekend of 1-2 September, the "Sail the World" celebrations capture the very spirit of sailing. I am delighted at the number of events, clubs and classes all over the world partnering with ISAF as we join together to "Sail the World."' Göran PETERSSON
