AT THE HELM

REAR-COMMODORE’S MESSAGE Dear Members This November we will witness the conclusion of our $8.1 million development project that was started more than two years ago. As this magazine goes to print, we would have completed the necessary inspections and the TOP ( Temporary Occupation Permit) for the new wing of the Marina Lodge is expected around the first week of November. We will have 28 additional rooms including three suites and five new ancillary rooms for members’ activities. The expanded Marina Lodge will provide more opportunities for members and their guests to enjoy a wonderful getaway time at the Club. From the roof-top of the four-storey building, the view looking out to the sea and marina is spectacular and magnificent. It not only enhances the nautical ambience of the club but also brings about a mood of serenity. Details of promotional offers for members during the soft launch of the new wing can be found in the magazine. Over at the boating front, the occupancy rate of the dry stack which was officially opened in May 2012 has been steadily increasing. Management is working hard to improve the service level and operation efficiency to better serve the enlarged group of boating members. Over at the pontoon area, the three damaged piles at H/I berth have been reinstated and reinforced in September. The Development Sub-Committee is

now working on a plan to convert H/I berth into berthing space for larger yachts of 60 to 80 ft in length. The number of yachts in this category has been increasing over the last three years. The new H/I berth is expected to meet the berthing demand in future. Design and engineering work has been completed and a project execution plan and budget will be prepared and submitted to the RSYC Committee for approval. In the mean time, Marine Department is working on the reconfiguration of the J berth which is at the far end of the marina. The modified J berth will be able to accommodate two more megayachts of 150 ft and we expect this will bring in more revenue for the Club. On the boat-charter scene, there are four yachts available for charter in our marina. We are currently negotiating with the owners of these yachts to offer special terms for members. Details will be announced to members through our e-newsletter and magazine once finalized. Our Events Department has several activities planned for members until the end of this year. I wish to highlight our annual Charity Cruise which is scheduled for Saturday 23 November. This year we have changed it to a community event where we invite families who are under the community care program in West Coast Constituency for a day’s outing to Pulau Hantu. As a member of West Coast Community, we at RSYC are mindful of our social responsibility to work on such initiative. I urge members

to come forward to support this worthy event. Last but not least, I wish to announce that the RSYC Committee has completed its search for a new general manager. A candidate was finally selected after a formal and thorough screening, selection and interview process. Although it took longer than expected to come to a final decision, the Committee thinks it was worthwhile for the long-term good of RSYC. We sincerely hope the new GM who is joining us in December will work closely with the RSYC Committee and lead the management team to achieve the targets and goals set by the Committee. I seek your full and continuous support, and together we will make RSYC a club that we all can be proud of. Wee Keng Hwee Rear Commodore Republic of Singapore Yacht Club

FROM THE EDITOR

The month of November marks the completion of the extension to the Marina Lodge. As soon as the TOP for the new wing is obtained (and we believe it could coincide with the printing of this magazine, hence we are unable to announce it!), we shall post up the soft opening date on the Club’s bulletin board. So why not drop by the Club and be among the first members to try out the spanking new premises. Bookings will be on a first-comefirst-served basis. And with special members’ rates to boot! The Rear Commodore and this year’s chairman of the Development Committee, Mr Wee Keng Hwee, raved about the lovely view of the sea and the marina, from the roof level of the four-storey building. And if you are lucky to catch the gorgeous sunset, the view will make your day. Now would be a good time for members to come up with some enticing suggestions about the roof-top usage! Originally, it was shown in an artist’s impression that it could be used as a tennis court. But I understand there was an issue with the load factor. So we welcome your ideas! Talking of activities at the Club, I suppose the Mahjong Room could be

moving soon from the former T V room to one of the three function rooms in the new wing on Level 2. That reminds me of the annual mahjong competition usually held around the Chinese New Year period, which falls on 31 January next year. Not too early to start planning for the games and getting your kakis together and polish up your skills! Do watch for details in the next magazine. But coming back to the big party on Tuesday 31 December to welcome the New Year, the great news is that the cost of admission is one of the lowest among clubs and most venues. The theme is Yesteryear, and the entertainment and music will bring back the great tunes of the Sixties and Seventies. We expect good crowds, so it is recommended that you book early for yourselves and your guests. Details for the evening’s Countdown Party can be found on the inside front cover of this magazine.

Commodore! A veteran sports personality, Teo Ping is also Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) VicePresident and wears a number of hats in the sports world. Finally, as the seasonal festivities start, don’t forget to bring along your children to the Club from the weeks leading to Christmas Day. There will be carolers and Santa Claus and Yuletide decorations at the Club. You’ve worked hard enough this year! Come to the Club to relax and enjoy its new facilities and the marvelous new food and drinks planned by our enthusiastic staff led by Benjamin Tan, Molly Tan, Joel Gwee and Foo Say Juan. It’s a great team effort for all the members. Here’s wishing one and all a blessed Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year! K.C. Yuen Editor, RSYC Magazine kc.yuen@rsyc.org.sg

As I write, the great news was announced that our Commodore, Mr Low Teo Ping, has been named Singapore’s Chef de Mission for the 2014 Commonwealth Games to be held in Glasgow, Scotland. Congrats,

DEVELOPMENT REPORT

Lodge and to be the first one to enjoy the boutique-style room design of contemporary nautical theme. Wee Keng Hwee Chairman Development Sub-Committee

The new Marina Lodge interior design was undertaken by AWP Pte Ltd who is the architect of the existing Marina Lodge. Contemporary nautical theme carries through the overall design of the new guest rooms and suites. Design focuses on flowing lines, aerodynamic forms and clean, crisp linens and fabrics. Dynamic and exciting combination of hard and soft materials and finishes are used to bring about a multi-sensory guest experience.

than walls. Bathroom layout is revised to differentiate from those of guest rooms through introduction of glazed screen from jacuzzi bath area to bedroom. Again the contemporary nautical theme is maintained by the furnishing materials and finishes. In summary, the new guest rooms and suites are designed to leave a lasting and pleasant impression on the guests. We encourage members to look out for the launching date of the new Marina

GUEST ROOMS CONCEPT The new design offers a ‘fresh feel’ to the existing room layout. Maximized lighting is achieved by opening up bathroom to bedroom utilising glazed panel. Every room has flexibility in bed arrangement, ie two super singles or one king bed to suit different guests’ needs. Design may be different from the existing rooms. However, the contemporary nautical theme remains unchanged with the similar palette of materials and finishes. GUEST SUITE CONCEPT Each suite is planned in serviced apartment style with defined living, dining and sleeping zones. Different zones are designated through floor finishes and ‘feature screens’ rather

SPECIAL FEATURE

Part of the huge crowd watching the classic America’s Cup races.

Thrill of a Lifetime Watching the 2013 America’s Cup R aces

Almost as old as the RSYC, the America’s Cup is the oldest trophy in sport with a rich heritage and tradition dating back to 1851. The Cup was named after the boat “America” which represented the New York Yacht Club and beat the British (with Queen Victoria watching) to win the 1851 Royal Yacht Squadron 100 Pound Cup. The NY YC held onto the trophy for 132 years, before, in 1983, Australia won the cup. Only two other nations have held the cup, New Zealand and the Swiss, and the 34th America’s Cup was not going to change that fact no matter who won. As we made our way down the steep streets of San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood the sunlit bay came into view. You could already make out the line of spectator boats lining the east and western course limits, and to the left was the famous Golden Gate Bridge, and off to the right the infamous Alcatraz. As we came closer to the water, you could easily make out Rising Sun, the 453ft (the 10th largest in the world) Jon Bannenberg designed super yacht, which had been chartered from David Geffen by its original owner, Larry Ellison (Oracle Team USA) to entertain his guests during the America’s Cup. RSYC’s Members were among a select few who were invited by the Committee of the St. Francis Yacht Club to enjoy their five-star facilities and hospitality on the waterfront, with the race course literally at the back deck. Founded in 1927, the St Francis is a privately held club with 2,300 members. They have a very active competitive sailing program, along with a

8

REPUBLIC OF SINGAPORE YACHT CLUB

Club Cruise Committee that arranges social cruising for its members. The club even has its own private island. Defender, Oracle Team USA and Challenger, Emirates Team New Zealand, were already out on the water practicing when we arrived at the St. Francis at noon, one and a quarter hours before the scheduled start of the Race. We joined the short, well-dressed line to collect our wrist bands and entered the club. A scaled down model of the AC72 sat proudly in the entry lobby, walls adorned with plaques and trophies. We made our way to the bar, grabbed a beverage and headed to the roof top deck, complete with a mini grandstand, to enjoy, what is arguably, some of the best views of the America’s Cup races ever seen. This would be a scene repeated several times over the next week or so. I felt like a kid in a candy shop: The 34th America’s Cup promised to be unlike any other and that promise was delivered in spades. Waiting for the race to start, I remembered a time when I would sit on the sandy beach by the Middle Harbor 16ft Skiff Club and watched the flying 16’s race across the water like high speed ballerinas carrying three wet-suited trapeze artists. As soon as the opportunity arose for me to join these thrill seekers on the water, I jumped at it (and ended up spending a lot of time treading water, but man it was fun). The skiff class of sailing was founded in Sydney in 1901, the latest boats to grace the America’s Cup were born in New Zealand in 2012. I now much prefer the NZ born variety, keep reading and

you will find out why (I just need a plan to sail on one). Racing an AC45 (44ft catamaran with a mast height of 70.5ft and a wing area of 85sqm and a crew of 5 sailors) Emirates Team New Zealand beat off Luna Rossa and Artemis Racing to win the right to challenge Oracle Team USA for the America’s Cup. The main difference for the big Cup race, was the increased size and speed of the boat. Powered by a wing sail, the AC72 is a flying machine. It is an F16 fighter jet which makes all other boats look like a training aircraft. It is an engineering masterpiece. It’s 72.2ft long, 45.9ft wide, has a mast height of 131.2ft, takes 11 sailors and has a sail wing area of 2,798.6 sq ft. These boats are capable of outrunning a Barracuda (44 km/hr), a Bluefin tuna (70 km/h) and a Wahoo (77 km/h). The closest comparison is the Striped Marlin that has a top speed of 81 km/hr, just under the speed (44 knots) that we witnessed the AC72’s flying at during the few weeks of racing. To provide some context, the 80ft sloops used in the 2007 America’s Cup had a top average speed of 22 km/h

(12 knots). Whilst I missed the 2013 F1 in Singapore, I certainly got my share of vicarious thrills through watching the AC72’s race around San Francisco’s bay (including several close passes and a near capsize). One of the highlights of my trip was visiting the Golden Gate Yacht Club, the current home of the Defender of the America’s Cup. A five-minute walk along the foreshore from the St Francis, the GGYC is known locally for its relaxed atmosphere and its dedication to its members’ enjoyment (fun times both on and off the water). GGYC’s Commodore, Norbert Bajurin, extended the welcoming hand of a fellow Yacht Club member to host us at the GGYC where I joined Richard Spindler (of Latitude 38 fame) and his wife Donna to watch the racing and enjoy the company of the GGYC members. I even got down to talking business with Ron Matlin, GGYC’s friendly Treasurer, who had some practical insights into how they had significantly improved their operations in preparation for hosting the 34th Americas Cup.

Getting back to the racing, history was made when Oracle Team USA fought back after being 8-1 down (first to 9 wins the Cup) to win the next 8 races to retain the America’s Cup. The city of San Francisco was filled with national pride; chants of “Team USA” and the occasional “Aussie Aussie Aussie” (the Skipper, Jimmy Spithill, is an Australian) rang out in bars around the marina into the wee hours of the morning. Whilst I don’t get out on the water as much as I would like to these days, being part of the boating community and a member of one of the oldest and respected Yacht Club’s in the world (RSYC) certainly does have its privileges. Above gaining access to the best seats to watch the most exciting racing format even seen in sailings history, being warmly welcomed in a foreign land certainly tops the cake. I now just need to find a way to get a joy ride on an AC72 or find a spare $100M to finance RSYC Team Singapore to challenge for the 35th America’s Cup in 2016. Any takers?

2013 CHARITY CRUISE

Help make ComCare kids happy this November! Here’s your chance to put a great big smile on a youngster’s face! This year, RSYC is once again organising the Annual Charity Cruise, but with a slight difference. It will benefit some 60 persons from West Coast ComCare who probably won’t ever get a chance to go on a boat trip to Pulau Hantu for a day’s picnic or experience the thrill of a jet-ski ride! Gracing the event on Saturday 23 November is MP for West Coast GRC and Minister in the PM’s Office, Mr S Iswaran, who will flag off the boats from RSYC Marina. This will be a great time for bonding and giving back to our community! So if you have a boat, and/or a jet-ski and some spare time, do join in the fun! Donations in cash or kind are also welcome.

HERITAGE

Does anyone know the whereabouts of the Rodesse Cup? and totally missed the closing of the clubhouse at the end of Trafalgar Street. I understand the trophies were taken to various members’ homes for safe-keeping until the new club house was completed. Maybe someone remembers who took the rowing trophies home!! We really would appreciate that it be found and returned to the Club to be displayed as part of their proud history. It is certainly part of our proud family history of rowing in Singapore and UK. Harry even rowed non-competatively in Sydney until the late 1990s. ‘The Three Burgees’ (history of the three club premises as researched and compiled by Peter Dunlop) has a photograph of Harry Howell receiving the Rodesse Cup in 1960 but it is not the actual trophy showing all the names and dates of winners. I have just returned to Australia from a visit to Singapore after 50 years. I was visiting with my son and his family. He had booked us into the RSYC with its very commendable accommodation wing, and excellent facilities. Past the Reception desk is a lighted image of the three club houses, and I cannot express my excitement to find the first club house taken from an original painted by my father-inlaw, Edmund Howell, and the thrill of showing my grandchildren that it was me, Grandma sitting on the lawn and that the original painting was painted by their Great Grandfather – Daddy’s Grandfather. And even more exciting to learn that the original painting is now owned by the RSYC and is on display in the General Manager’s office. It was painted as a fundraiser in 1965, was auctioned in London and purchased by a very good friend (an ex-Singapore rowing member, John Pepys, retired and living in London). But nobody can tell us how and when

the painting came to the RSYC. Then to the left of the entrance were a number of large very impressive display cabinets with so many sailing and rowing trophies. The Club is obviously very proud of its history and treasures these trophies from the past. I did notice that a particular rowing trophy – ‘The Rodesse Cup’ – was missing and which is of special significance to my family. The trophy was first rowed for in 1926 and won by my husband’s uncle H.A.A. Howell. He was posted to Singapore as ADC to Governor Laurence Guillemard at that time. What makes this trophy so especially interesting is that the last two names on the cup are my husband Harry Howell (H.E.H. Howell on the cup I think) in 1960 and 1961. As far as I know it has never been raced for again. It was an ‘open sculls’ trophy. Harry was Captain of Boats for a number of years at RSYC.

And all this before we left Reception and discovered the swimming pool, not just one but three restaurants, the huge 4-storey Dry Stack and sizeable Marina. What a treat to go back after 50 years and find so much that was familiar. What a weekend! VERONICA HOWELL Probably better known as Veronica Thomson in the early 1960s

Editor’s note: One of the distinct pleasures of my job is to connect with surprise visitors from overseas who were former members of RSYC or members of their families. Last month I received a delightful phone call from such a member – Mrs Veronica Howell (nee Thomson) of Australia – and a week later, did meet up with her son Jeremy, now based in Hong Kong. Mrs Howell was kind enough to email to us this heartwarming story about her family’s long association with the RSYC. – KC Yuen

We were re-located to Borneo in 1963
