First on teh relocation to Hong Kong
- In general people with kids
who have lived in bothplaces say Singapore is better for the family
. Couples find Hong Kong better.
There are active sailors all over Singapore.
During the Northeast Monsoon sailing is great. November to about March.
During the Southwest it is OK but really only good on the southern and south western side of the island. June - August.
During the transiitons it can be frustrating and a lot of drifting is to be had.
CSC currently has the most active sailing activities - biweekly twilight races and they run series races. For lower cost sailing CSC, SAF and Raffles are recommended. The south central marinas - RSYC, One15, Sentosa and Keppel offer various experiences.
As stated above all the sailors pretty much know or know of each other and the community is somewhat tight.
Not a lot of boats here and what we have changes hands primarily by word of mouth or bulletin board postings. Haulouts, maintenance
and so forth can be challenging but it can be worked out.
Regional sailing (crusing) is not bad. Within weekends you have Malaysia
in the south. A weeks trip can get you to Tioman, more time can get you up to Langkawi, penang and even Phuket/Thailand. CSC has organized a couple of flotillas to Tioman recently.
