[SOE MOE] 2 New Entries: Volvo Ocean Race Singapore Stopover

Volvo Ocean Race Singapore Stopover

I've heard that Volvo Ocean Race is heading Singapore on their third leg from Cochin in mid December and ever since then I was really excited to see one of the most famous around-the-world yacht race and the yachts.

I was told by a friend that the yachts arrived to Singapore at the end of December and they will be in ONE° 15 Marina Club. When the sails boat arrived there, the on-shore team took over the boats and they were taken to the dock for maintenance & repair and prepare for next leg.

ONE° 15 is located at the Sentosa Cove and it is the newest water front resident project in Singapore and the marina club is located at the heart of it. Let me tell you something about ONE° 15 Marina Club. ONE° 15 offers world-class marina facilities and it is one of the best marina in the South East Asia. It was established in 2007 and membership of the club was opened in 2005. The membership was closed when they reach 3850 members in December 2007. According to their website, the remaining membership will be "by invitation of the Chairman" only and the intital enterence fee will cost S$50,888.

The marina was open to public for Volvo Ocean Race from 8 January to 18 January 2009. The Inport race was conducted on 10 January and I went there to take some photos of the sail boat. When I got there, I suddenly fall in love with the place and we decided to come again next week just to enjoy our day there. On 10 January, we manage to get there after lunch and at that time the race is already started. We just go around the marina and found a good sport to see the boat when they come back to marina.

Following is some of the photos I took at the marina.
