In more than 190 years of its history, the Republic of Singapore Yacht Club has built a solid yachting heritage over countless regattas and races. Many an interesting story would unfold if only the trophies in the clubhouse foyer could talk.
The RSYC Regatta is the Club’s premier yachting event, and a celebration of a long yachting history. The races will continue this year and will run over two weekends in July, where Keelboats of all sizes will complete in a series of passage and short course races in the ever-changing water around the southern islands of Singapore.
Longest Running Regatta in Singapore
RSYC Regatta is probably the longest running regatta in Singapore with races dating back as early as 1920s. In 1923, RSYC gained its most honoured trophy when Sir Thomas Lipton donated the Lipton Cup. This illustrious tradition has been kept alive by the pioneer yachtsmen of RSYC, then formerly known as the Royal Singapore Yacht Club and had been dynamically revived when RSYC moved to its current clubhouse at West Coast Ferry Road.
The Regatta is an important platform for RSYC to spread awareness not only in the sport of sailing, where Singapore is poised to maintain its top spot as Asia’s premier sailing nation, but also to encourage the local community to make sea sports a regular feature of their lifestyle.
