UWCSEA Sailing compete in StarHub Singapore Laser Open
By Robbie Jefferiss, Sailing coach, East Campus
From 1-3 December, the combined UWCSEA Sailing Team participated in the 41st StarHub Singapore Laser Open hosted by the SAFYC Yacht Club. The team competed in the Laser Radial Class against a strong fleet of competitors. Light and shifted winds were prevalent throughout the weekend with the occasional rain shower. This made for some very challenging light wind sailing conditions while also battling the strong tidal currents. For some new members of the team, this was their first taste of competitive sailing in a big fleet. This is the first of three big regattas the team will race in this year. The club trains and races at Constant Wind Sailing Club every Saturday throughout the school year.
Congratulations to the team on completing the first big event of the year!
