Extreme Sailing Series 2015 Act 1 – Singapore

The Extreme Sailing Series 2015 returned back to Singapore for the opening sailing race calendar in the heart of Marina Bay Singapore. Held from the 5th to 8th February 2015, it was great to see high octane sailing action in the heart of Marina Bay, surrounded by the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District, joined by tricky wind conditions and directions, posing great challenges and tactics by the captains and their crews!

It was fun to be back photographing and covering Extreme Sailing Series in Singapore, I remembered documenting the Extreme Sailing Series in 2013 and 2014! This is my third year photographing the sailing competition in Singapore! Let me share with my readers again, a recap on the Extreme Sailing Series –

Established in 2007, the Extreme Sailing Series™ is the original ‘stadium-style’ racing circuit designed for spectators, delivering high-performance action close to shore. Attracting some of the worlds very best sailors racing 40-feet multihulls on short courses, the global circuit spans the Middle East, Asia, South America and Europe.”

Our gorgeous and magnificent Marina Bay Singapore is truly a “stadium-style” racing circuit for the competition boats, sailors and spectators. Enclosed in a 600m by 300m racing circuit surrounded by many different types of buildings, it was a great spectacle to watch the boats sailing pretty close to the sides of the Marina Bay. Due to day job commitments, I was only able to cover the Extreme Sailing Series 2015 Act 1 – Singapore on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th February. The weather was great; it was hot and sunny, with strong winds blowing. It was pretty good for the sailors and spectators alike, to watch the Extreme Sailing Series competition.

IMG_2876

With experiences gained over the past 2 years of Extreme Sailing Series in Singapore, I managed to photograph the 40-feet multihulls in action from 6 different spots around Marina Bay, providing me with more different perspectives and views of the Extreme Sailing Series in high-octane action on the waters of Marina Bay Singapore! The spectators were able to view the competition not too far away from the Bay sides and they were able to watch how the sailors adapt and react to different sailing conditions and situations on the boats!

IMG_2905

The winds were tricky, shifty and gusty at times, ranging from 15 knots to 21 knots! Spectators watching from different locations of Marina Bay Singapore were at times given some exciting and heart pumping moments when the boats went all the way out, catching the strong winds pushing them. There was a great sporting action moment when 4 boats raced to the buoy pretty close together and making a U-turn there!

IMG_2923

On the 4th day of the Extreme Sailing Series 2015 Act 1 – Singapore, the spectators were treated to a nail biting finish by Red Bull Sailing Team to be crowned champions in Singapore for Act 1 – Singapore. With some competition scoring points advantage coming into Day 4 over SAP Extreme Sailing Team, the Red Bull Sailing Team held their nerve to overcome an onslaught by the SAP Extreme Sailing Team in the final race to beat them by just five points! This was definitely a very close fight to the finishing line and the bragging rights to be called champions in Singapore for Extreme Sailing Series 2015 Act 1!

Extreme Sailing Series Singapore – 22nd Feb 2014

A bright, sunny and gusty windy Saturday, 22nd February 2014 at the Marina Bay Singapore, where Extreme Sailing Series 2014 Act 1 is happening during this weekend. Having covered part of the Extreme Sailing on Friday 21st February, Saturday’s Extreme Sailing highlights proved to be even more exciting and fun to watch, along with an unfortunate crash between 2 of the Elite Extreme Sailing boats that happened in the late afternoon to evening time.

2T2J1135

The crowds were in today to gather and watch the Extreme Sailing Series action and before the main competition started, there was a first ever novelty drag race of its kind in Singapore, the Breast Cancer Foundation’s dragon boat team ‘Paddlers in the Pink’ will take on Team Aberdeen Singapore in the bay before the main racing gets underway. It was great to show support to the heroines of “Paddlers in the Pink”, the Breast Cancer Foundation’s Dragon Boat Team, drawing great cheers from the spectators at The Promontory @ Marina Bay.

2T2J1365

The Extreme Sailing Series kickstarted their competition at around 3pm and the 12 Elite Extreme Sailing boats were in high speed adrenaline action around the waters of Marina Bay Singapore. I was able to get closer to the sailors in action on the media boat for one of the races (with my media accreditation access) and you can spot their concentration, commitment, precision and teamwork during the Extreme Sailing races. This was also my maiden experience on a media boat photographing competitive sports sailing action and it was definitely a great learning experience that gave me close up Extreme Sailing Series sailing action!

2T2J1305

Thereafter, I walked to the Marina Bay Sands area to photograph the Extreme Sailing Series from another location, angle and perspective of the  Extreme Sailing Series action that is close to the public in a Stadium Sailing setting and how Marina Bay Singapore fits it perfectly. I wasn’t disappointed at all and with the gusty winds, it provided a good platform for the 12 Elite Extreme Sailing teams to showcase their skills, tactics and sailing.

2T2J1472

At around the late afternoon, there was an unfortunate crash between Team Aberdeen Singapore and Groupama sailing team. Team Aberdeen Singapore caught one of the biggest gusts of the day as they came into the finish line struggling to hold off the pace and ploughing into the back of France’s Groupama sailing team. I was on the other side of the Marina Bay Sands when I heard the crash and I was glad that there were no major injuries to the sailors from Team Aberdeen Singapore and Groupama sailing teams. Safety was the first and foremost concern of the organisers, the safety boats were seen moving into the area immediately to provide assistance and rescue the sailors. The damaged sailing boats were escorted to The Float@Marina Bay for assessment and repairs and let’s hope both boats can return in time tomorrow for Sunday’s Extreme Sailing Series competition in the afternoon!

2T2J1452

Groupama sailing team skipper, Franck Cammas, explained what happened: “We had big gusts and as we were finishing a gybe we saw Aberdeen come really fast from behind and that’s the moment when they came over us breaking the mast. Besides the broken mast the damage is not too serious and it is mainly on the mast, the mainsail, the jib and a hole on the trampoline so I think we will be able to race tomorrow with another mast. Tanguy Cariou is the only crew member hurt but it’s only superficial injuries. He was in the middle of the trampoline where the boat fell, which was the worst spot. Three crew members jumped off the boat. It’s the risk of racing. What is tricky here is that the wind is quite strong and very gusty which is difficult to anticipate. It’s not easy.” – (Source: Extreme Sailing Series and Full Circle Public Relations)

Extreme Sailing Series Singapore – 21st Feb 2014

The Extreme Sailing Series 2014 is back in Singapore with a big bang in the heart of Marina Bay Singapore! With strong winds blowing in the Marina Bay area and under the intense hot tropical sunshine, the Extreme 40 sailing boats are providing great excitement and sports action to the spectators around the Marina Bay Stadium! The Extreme Sailing Series is an international sailing event since 2007,  visiting different countries around the world and Singapore is Act 1 for Extreme Sailing Series 2014! High speed and adrenaline sporting action on the water by the Extreme 40 sailing boats whereby the action is close to the public in a Stadium Sailing, Marina Bay Singapore fits the bill perfectly!

2T2J0917

This is my 2nd year covering and photographing Extreme Sailing Series, here’s a recap of the Extreme Sailing Series that I went in 2013! If you like to know about the Extreme Racing, the starting procedure, the course, what happens during the race and the finishing, do check out their link here on Extreme Sailing Series website for more details! Here’s a photograph that I took at the Race Village that shows the Extreme Sailing Series course route!

2T2J1028

There were 6 races on 21st February and the Extreme 40 sailing teams had to handle winds ranging form three knots to gusty winds peaking at twenty-four knots! Watching the races from the Marina Bay area, it’s an ideal Stadium arena setting to watch the Extreme 40 sailing boats in close action, you can see them “flying” across the water! Our Marina Bay is not only a beautiful bay area with many different buildings surrounding it, they provide interesting challenges with the unpredictable winds and breezes in the Marina Bay area, giving the 12 Elite Extreme Sailing Teams a handful to handle during the racing competition!

Aberdeen Extreme Sailing Series 2013 – Singapore

Extreme sailing right in the heart of Singapore’s spectacular city Marina Bay area, close to the sides of the Bay whereby the spectators can get a close up feel of the high octane sporting action in the beautiful sunshine and winds. This is the Aberdeen Extreme Sailing Series 2013, Act 2; location is Singapore, with the action-taking place from 11th to 14th April 2013.

2T2J5596

What is Extreme Sailing all about?

“The Extreme Sailing Series™ is a unique concept, pitting some of the best professional sailing teams in the world against each other on identical Extreme 40 catamarans, on close to shore, challenging and tactical courses, to provide spectacular, stadium-style entertainment for the public. The Stadium Sailing format created and developed by the Series has been revolutionary for the sport. It has brought the boats and action to the public like never before, putting guests at the heart of the battle with the unique ‘Guest Sailor’ spot and dramatically increasing the pace on the water.”

** Information above provided by Full Circle Public Relations **

Indeed, right in heart of the Marina Bay area, the Marina Reservoir is definitely the perfect location for the Extreme Sailing Series and I was there to watch, enjoy, photograph and write about the Aberdeen Extreme Sailing Series in Singapore. Guests and spectators were treated to 3 days of extreme sailing sporting action around the Marina Bay, with some vantage views from Marina Bay Sands, Merlion Park and the best location would probably be the Marina Promontory whereby the Extreme Sailing boats would sail as close to the side as possible, where the events village and VIP hospitality are located. I took the opportunity to walk around the Marina Bay area, took photographs from One Fullerton, Esplanade Bridge, Marina Bay Sands and Marina Promontory for my Extreme Sailing Series collection. You can find them here on my Flickr collection!

2T2J5632

The hosts/commentators on the ground were awesome in sharing their knowledge of the Extreme Sailing Series, the rules, tactics employed by the various captains, sailing routes taken by the Extreme Sailing boats. This was especially helpful for the spectators who were there to watch the Extreme Sailing Series whom were not too sure on the rules and regulations of the Extreme Sailing Series. At various locations, I would try to capture different boats in action when they are turning into the wind and getting a good sail towards the finishing line. The tricky wind conditions around the Marina Bay posed a challenge to all the various boats captains to plan the right tactics and make the right call in each round of sailing. It’s a test of the captain’s nerve of steel, patience and a cool head to make the right call in Singapore’s tropical heat and humidity.

2T2J6061

With Singapore’s Marina Bay hosting the Extreme Sailing Series, this would definitely help and boost Singapore’s sailing in many ways and getting more people interested in sailing activities. This was also helped by fringe events happening in Marina Bay before the Extreme Sailing Series competition from 1500hrs to 1800hrs from Friday to Sunday. It was great to see kids involved and participating in sailing activities at Marina Bay. More sailing opportunities would be available at Marina Bay in the future with regular sailing opportunities/lessons in the Marina Bay (do check out the website Marina Bay Sailing for more details)

2T2J6096

Extreme Sailing Series coming to Singapore definitely puts us on the world map as a sporting hub with different sporting events coming over here.  Looking ahead, we hope to see more international sporting events making a stopover in Singapore and we hoped to welcome back Extreme Sailing Series again to Singapore in the heart of Marina Bay!

All hands on deck Audi Ultra Super Maxi Yacht!

When you were walking around the Marina Bay recently, did you spot a beautiful yacht sailing around the Marina Bay or the yacht moored at one of the Marina Bay jetty, near Marina Bay City Gallery and Marina Bay Sands ? This is something special, that would bring help promote sailing and its participation, along with the growth of water activities at Marina Bay, sailing would be a more common sight, leisure, recreational and sporting event among Singaporeans.

I was kindly invited by the Marina Bay Division of Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) for a day of social, leisure and recreational activities on 24th September 2011 and it was a dream coming true when I was able to board the beautiful and magnificent Audi Ultra Super Maxi Yacht for a short trip on the Marina Bay waters!! Alright, before I go further into my adventure story telling, here’s more information on the Audi Ultra Racing Team. Here’s the technical details of the yacht and it’s an awesome sight to be on this gorgeous yacht! Check out them on Audi Ultra Racing Team on Facebook too!

With a great crew to sail us around the Marina Bay, explaining to us the history, specifications, power and capabilities of this yacht. We were given a taste of her strengths and unique feature of the canting keel! Sailing around the Marina Bay is very fun and I am looking forward to the future when there are more water activities on the Marina Bay, giving this beautiful Bay area, an even greater leisure and recreational environment! Sailing around the Bay, taking photographs from the heart of the Marina Bay waters, this experience is priceless. The group of visitors on the yacht were also given a tour of the deck below the yacht, having a first hand glimpse of how yacht living is like, it’s an eye-opener!

Do check out fellow blogger’s write up on the sailing adventure together with me!

– Would update the links here once other fellow bloggers share about their adventures!

While it was only a short trip around the Marina Bay, it was absolutely great fun, I got myself behind the steering wheel and acted like the captain of the yacht! Returning back to shore, I was very happy to say that I was on board a modern, powerful, sporting competition yacht, the Audi Ultra Super Maxi Yacht!  This would not have been possible with the special arrangement by Juliana Tan of Marina Bay Division and the wonderful crew of the Audi Ultra Racing Team. Thank you all for this special sailing event! Check out my sailing adventures photos here!

The Audi Ultra Super Maxi Yacht is now on its way for more adventures & competitions! Wishing her crew all the best and good luck!! Hope to catch you all again at Marina Bay !!
