AT THE HELM

AT THE HELM Dear Fellow Members, I am very happy to have the honour of writing to you in this festive season of joy, celebrations, partying and holidays. Christmas, New Year and of course, Chinese New Year come one after another, keeping us in a happy and celebratory mood. On behalf of the committee and all our hard working staff, I hope you and your families have had a wonderful start to the New Year and wish you an abundance of happiness and prosperity in the Lunar New Year. We do hope you had a good time at our December Member’s night, Christmas and New Year special dishes at the Pizzeria as well as Wharf, New Year countdown and enjoyed the special Italian set dinner and various other festivities organised by the club. Your suggestions as well as feedback will help our staff to do even better in the coming year. For the Chinese New Year festive season we have lined up a variety of activities including Qiqong, Lion & Dragon Dance, Craft workshop, Mahjong competition and special dishes at our F&B outlets. We look forward to your participation in any of these events. As your Honorary Secretary, I facilitate the interaction between members and the committee. Your suggestions and feedback on various matters will be taken seriously and discussed in all earnest. Recently one member had suggested a beer garden in our Marina Lodge rooftop currently used as a tennis court. We explored this but it appears there are some regulatory hurdles. Instead we are in the process of converting a part of the Foreshore into a beer garden with nice waterfront view. By the time you read this, hopefully it will be operational. Looking back, we had a variety of events and activities at RSYC. The RSYC Charity Cruise, held on 30th November was

a grand success. Beneficiaries really enjoyed the outing as well as the fun and games at Pulau Hantu. I was happy to join the cruise and it helped me understand first hand what really keeps us afloat and makes us special - our members and staff. Boating members not only spared their boats and their valuable time as well as costs but participated with great enthusiasm and spirit. Jet-ski owners cheerfully took beneficiaries on multiple joy rides without hesitation. And of course, our staff put it all together and coordinated the effort with great competence. On behalf of the committee my sincere thanks to all of them. We also thank the West Coast CC and its Chairman and staff for their help. As a responsible member of the West Coast community, RSYC will continue to engage them and find ways to bring everyone the joys of sailing and water sports. A special Holiday market was held together with Christmas light-up and attracted a lot of interest. Special attraction was the Christmas tree, a real one, with ornaments, lighting and decorations done by our staff. We thank all members who joined us and helped support the event. After all the partying and feasting, we have to get back to work! Eighteen to twenty years is a golden period in the lifetime of a person and we look our best and accomplish many things in our prime. However, for a club, that is midlife and our facilities and infrastructure require refresh and renewal, particularly because we are in Singapore where such renewal is constant. Combine this with an ageing membership profile and lease, you can imagine the funding and operational challenges. We seek your continued support and cooperation to the club as we navigate these challenging seas. With your help, we are confident of emerging

from this with more strength and vigour. The coming year of the Rat is the first in the Chinese zodiac cycle. It marks the end of the earlier cycle. RSYC too needs fresh faces and ideas. Our committee leadership will also renew in the coming year. On a personal note, you are aware I had to assume the role of Honorary Secretary when Mr. James Wong resigned due to work commitments. Our members always have to juggle their careers, personal interests, families and other commitments. However, we do hope that some will find time to serve the club in various sub-committees as well as main committee. In the coming AGM if we have a renewed interest and vigorous contest for various committee positions, particularly from our younger members and lady members, that would be great news! I once again wish you a very Happy New Year wish you and your family all the best in the coming Lunar New Year! RANGAMANI GANESH Honorary Secretary Republic of Singapore Yacht Club

Mr Jack Byers, ex-commodore of Santa Barbara Yacht Club from California visited RSYC on 29th November 2019. He exchanged a friendly chat with our General Manager and also exchanged burgee as a nice gesture between both parties. Founded in 1872, Santa Barbara Yacht Club is very similar to RSYC - a family-oriented club, rich with history and tradition. The Club is the second oldest yacht club on the west coast of North America. The Club is devoted to promoting and and managing yachting activities, advancing the art of seamanship, preserving maritime tradition, and providing for the social and recreational needs of our members, while being mindful of its important role in the community. For more information about Santa Barbara Yacht Club, please visit https://www.sbyc.org/ SACRAMENTO YACHT CLUB Mr Patrick Vath, member of Sacramento Yacht Club from California visited RSYC on 9th December 2019. He was given a tour of RSYC premises by Sales & Membership Manager, Mr Jackson Lim and exchanged burgees between the two club before sending him off. Sacramento Yacht Club (SYC) is founded with the principal goal of enhancing safe recreational boating in the Sacramento area. SYC is primarily a Member-owned Club meaning that member effort constitutes a large part of the maintenance and upgrade of our Club and memberships are “family” based. SYC has been a staple in the forefront of modern boating in the Sacramento region for almost 100 years! Other than the marina, the Yacht Club also offers full bar, banquet hall, games room, laundry and of course some of the best events that happen on the river every year! For more information about Sacramento Yacht Club, please visit http://sacyc.com/

MEET THE TEAM

MEET THE TEAM

HOUSEKEEPING TEAM

Who is who:

Consisting of twenty-four staff, the Front Desk and Housekeeping team headed by Room and Housekeeping Manager, Ms Molly Tan is the heart of the Clubhouse and Marina Lodge. They play a critical role in generating the first impression of RSYC on a Member or a guest’s minds, often the first to greet Club members and visitors and also providing valuable information about the Clubhouse. Often, they are not being recognized till a problem was discovered and we realized how important their roles are.

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT:

As you can imagine, the scope of work varies every day and may include simple tasks such as greeting members and their guests, checking guests in, ensuring cleanliness of Marina Lodge and public area to more complicated tasks such as assisting in special requests by members and visitors or even dealing with complaints. Whatever the tasks may be, you can be assured that they are always there to answer your enquiries and try their best to assist you in the best way possible.

RSYC CHARITY CRUISE 2019 RSYC concluded another successful Charity Cruise on 30th November 2019 with around 40 residents staying at West Coast as our beneficiaries. We were blessed with clear skies the entire day despite encountering heavy rain the day before. 35 volunteering skippers and crews from 15 participating boats gathered as early as 7am to prepare for the day out and have their breakfast together at The Wharf. Chairman of West Coast Citizens’ Consultative Committee (CCC) Chairman, Mr. Andrew Chua (BBM), was warmly welcomed by the Organizing Committee to grace the event and greeted the beneficiaries at The Foreshore. After the necessary briefing on safety guidelines and donning the requisite life jackets, the beneficiaries were introduced to their assigned skippers and led to their designated boats. Mr Albert Fong, Rear Commodore of RSYC gave a welcome speech, before proceeding to officially flag-off the flotilla who were headed towards Pulau Hantu.

SPECIAL FEATURE Upon arrival at Pulau Hantu, participants were gathered and briefed about the activities lined up for them. All the beneficiaries were engaged in the high-energy team bonding activities prepared for them. At noon, light snacks were served to all before the day continued with the ever popular jetski rides which easily became the highlight of the day especially amongst the kids. The jet skis rides attracted many curious and adventurous participants who queued up for their turn to have a thrilling ride around the island’s bay. Some participants enjoyed the rides so much that they went on multiple times with different riders. As it was time to return back to RSYC, everyone packed and got ready to head back to the club at 3pm as yummy refreshment awaited them at The Wharf. All trash was bagged and brought back to RSYC, keeping the island clean and green. Back in the Club, Events Chairman thanked all volunteering members and staff for their contributions in making the event a success. Before parting ways, goodie bags were given to all beneficiaries and staff. After the event, skippers from each participating boat was also given a memento Suction Mug as token of appreciation. A big THANK YOU goes to all members of RSYC who came forward to contribute their time and resources to this charitable cause.

PROFILE

MEXICAN FAMILY WILL TRAVEL THE WORLD ON A SAILBOAT WITH A MESSAGE OF PEACE Photo courtesy of Captain Alejandro

The Mexican Irigoyen family, made up of five members, left their comfortable life in Puebla, Mexico in March 2019 to sail around the world. They began their journey of sailing from the port of Acapulco aboard the 56 ft sailboat ALDIVI, on a trip that will last two and a half years. We met up with them on 3rd December 2019 over lunch at La Pizzeria where they docked at RSYC for 10 days to learn about their story of being the first Mexican family to circumnavigate the globe and to see how they all live on the sailboat. The adventure was born as a dream 25 years ago when Captain Alejandro Irigoyen aka the Daddy first crewed on an ocean race. He knew then that he will reach his goal to sail round the world at age 45 and now he has made it a reality. He will travel with his wife Bernadette Sånchez – who was supportive of his dream even before marriage - and their three children around the world, carrying a message of peace. Finding the right boat was no easy task. When Captain Alejandro finally found the ideal sailboat, the family decided to call it ALDIVI. As his children have been the greatest gift of life, the sailboat bears the first syllables of their names: ALEXA (9), DIEGO (6) and VITAL (4). ALDIVI had set sail for French Polynesia from Puerto Vallarta and made a fast 21 day passage to the Marquesas island of Hiva Oa. This was made possible due to a prime weather window where the wind conditions were perfect for sailing. The passage also gave them the confidence to travel as a family as the children quickly adapted and embraced the change in lifestyle within the 21 days. 9 months have passed since then, they are now here in Singapore and will explore Asia before taking the route to Indian Ocean, Mediterranean and cross the Atlantic Ocean to return to Mexico.

RSYC.ORG.SG


SPECIAL FEATURE In an interview with Alejandro and his family, he told us that the journey has actually provided a chance for the children to disconnect themselves from the digital world, their favourite iPads and get some hands-on, real world education and freedom. He was glad that he has made the right decision seeing how the kids have grown. Ms Bernadette further explained that their children have learnt to be more caring and sharing, became confident individuals with patience and tolerance. These are essential life skills for kids. The family is also healthier at sea as compared to on land perhaps due to the fresh air conditions. Mr Alejandro also shared an interesting fact with us that he drinks a cup of seawater per day as it contains numerous minerals which he believe is better than any supplements that one may take and might be one of the reasons keeping him healthy at sea. Sailing is always perceived as an expensive way to travel. However, Captain Alejandro thinks otherwise. “The expenses incurred is actually lesser than on shore as one does not have the burden of cars and property. We actually seldom use the engine when at sea and prefer to sail everywhere. I am also an engineer and do the maintenance of the boat by myself which helps to save some costs.” said Captain Alejandro. He also eased out of his jewellery creation company which is running on autopilot now and still receives part of the salary which help to fund the travels. The family also started their own travelling blog on Facebook and their story has inspired 2 families to follow the same journey. The Irigoyen family also received sponsorship from supportive organisations and kind individuals who read their blog. For individual who are inspired by the family, Captain Alejandro encouraged everyone to pursue their dream and not be caught up in the rat race or be a slave in the current society system. As Captain Alejandro said “You only live once so throw away all burdens or fear and live the way you want.” We wish them the best of luck in their journey around the planet where they continue their family mission to promote peace, diversity, protection of the oceans and the planet in general.

RECIPROCAL CLUB

RECIPROCAL CLUB

ROYAL VANCOUVER YACHT CLUB Royal Vancouver Yacht Club (RVYC) is a volunteer-based club established in 1903 whose members enjoy boating, friendships, and participating in club and community events through the year. The Royal Vancouver Yacht Club is located in Vancouver, British Columbia and currently operates two marinas, the one at Jericho Beach in English Bay and another in Coal Harbour. The marina in Jericho Beach includes a clubhouse, two restaurants, and berths enough for 350 as well as a dinghy dock. In 2017 the award-winning Dock Building was completed, providing offices for the Harbour Master, instruction and amenity space and workshops to maintain boats, sails and gear. The Coal Harbour site has approximately 350 berths, some with covered moorage, and is also the location of the Mermaid Inn, a delightful floating diner. The Club also established seven offshore stations through the Gulf Islands and up Indian Arm

Jerico Beach in English Bay

With 5000 members, RVYC has been part of the Coal Harbour for more than a century. The Club has groomed numerous Olympian and Paralympian athletics. Thousands of members and visitors have also learned safe boating and sailing from RVYC. In 2018, the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club was recognised by The Canadian Society of Club Managers and won the 2018 Club of the Year. The Club believed strongly in supporting the community and run activities for the underprivileged children, sharing their boating knowledge with the community.

Coal Harbour

The Royal Vancouver Yacht Club’s values embody sustainability, stewardship, and sportsmanship which are carried into its second century of operation with care and renewal while supporting the community and sharing the waterways with all.

THE FUTURE OF MARINE ROBOTICS Article contributed by Grace Chia, Co-Founder of BeeX Autonomous Systems

Bumblebee-BeeX Team with their AUV and Senior Minister Teo Chee Hean, Patron of RSYC

RSYC has been an instrumental supporting organization in helping NUS Bumblebee achieve their dreams. In 2018, the student team won First Place at RobotX, one of the most challenging marine robotics competitions in the world. BeeX Autonomous Systems is a spin-off company from NUS; my co-founder Eng Wei and myself are the first members of the student team. We started BeeX because we believe that maritime inspections and interventions can be done better, with Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs). Traditionally, underwater inspections, especially in shallow waters, are carried out by divers. Diving is not a simple job and is considered a high-risk occupation. For safety reasons, a diver should not be diving too deep nor long duration, and in currents that are too strong. The risk is heightened when the environment is not well understood after various accidents; for example, the requirement to inspect a jetty pile after it has been knocked by a vessel. However, this contradicts with when inspections usually requested; most asset owners will not carry out preventive checks on their assets unless something did go wrong. Fatal incidents have resulted. Hence came about the invention of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), in all shapes and form since 1960s, to help with doing some of the diving jobs that can be automated. In moving from divers to ROV, the industry has replaced the underwater human with a machine, but the operation concept does not change. In a diving situation the diver is told what to do by the topside supervisor, in ROV situation, the robot is told what to do by the topside pilot. This means that ROVs in the market today need a cable connected from the ROV to the shore/boat for this transmission of command, as well as power.

SEASPORTS

The applications are broad; including port, vessel and jetty inspections, land reclamations, water monitoring, facility maintenance, search and rescue and defense. BeeX is one of few companies in the world which have expertise and control over the vehicles’ hardware and software. RSYC as our supportive partner, is critical in enabling BeeX’s continuous journey in making maritime inspections better. Every aspect of the vehicle is carefully engineered and rigorously tested at the RSYC berthside. RYSC was one of the organizations who believed in us, even when we had nothing to show for. As undergraduates, we were competing against globally renowned research teams. We are small, and hence need to make it up with a great deal of hard work.

Diver with ROV

Be it in BeeX or Bumblebee, when we are working hard in our small tent alongside, it is our commitment to making our dreams a reality. We hope that the visibility of our work berthed alongside in RSYC will remind ourselves to continue working hard at our dreams, whilst inspiring more people in all walks of life to commit towards the pursuit of theirs.

Spot us in the green tent!

RYSC is Asia’s first Yacht Club. We are building BeeX to become the leading Marine Robotics company in Asia, and this place of rich heritage is a great home for us to focus on creating many other ‘firsts’. Robotics on water is its infancy and the translation of more complex diver tasks to robots is still not very well explored.

The team is currently working on developing behaviors for underwater interventions, and hopefully we can move closer to diverless operations, in a greater range of environments and situations. If you are interested in our journey or in our vehicles, please follow us on LinkedIn at www.linkedin.com/company/beexsg or contact us directly at grace@beex.sg. We will also continue to update via the newsletter! Thank you again to all the wonderful staff and members of RSYC for your support!

About the Author Grace Chia graduated from National University of Singapore (Mechanical Engineering) in 2014. She graduated with Third Class Honours, with a bucket load of experiences from Sheares Hall, NUS Overseas Colleges and her ‘baby’ Bumblebee team, an undergraduate competitive robotics team she started with a few crazy engineering friends. In October 2018, Grace and her Bumblebee teammate Eng Wei decided to incorporate BeeX Autonomous Systems, to commercialize the academic research done in NUS, to transform marine inspections and interventions.
