Team Singapore departed Shanwei, the sailing venue, for Guangzhou this morning. Most of them will spend a day in the main city of the Asian Games before heading back to Singapore tomorrow. Keelboat sailors Colin and Yurii came back yesterday and are already back to their full-time jobs. Wearn Haw and Benjamin arrive this afternoon at 3.50pm, followed by Laser standard silver medalist Colin Cheng at 5.25pm who will then hop onto a 8.00pm flight to Sydney as summer course commences tomorrow. The lives of hectic sailors!
Join us tomorrow to welcome the main sailing contingent home. (Flight no. SQ 851, ETA 5.25pm, Changi International Airport, Terminal to be confirmed 2 hours before arrival.) We will then head back to the National Sailing Centre for some munch and merry making. All are welcome!
To the volunteers at the sailing competition and lovely people in Shanwei, thank you for your hospitality and the lovely memories. Till we meet again.
