NOSS Sailing Championships 2011

At the Singapore National Sailing Centre

The popular claim that there is always something to do in Singapore is no idle boast as the tiny island is constantly buzzing with activity, making it one of the most fun holiday destinations in the world. Tourists are offered a plethora of attractions and activities. It is fortunate that the country is so compact, which makes it easier to get a lot of sightseeing done in a short space of time. So it is not surprising that the country is so popular with travellers from around the world.

Those visiting Singapore this November should keep an eye out for the NOSS Sailing Championships. This annual event will take place at the Singapore National Sailing Centre. The races are set to take place between the 25th and 27th. The boats follow a triangular course quite close to the shore, and tourists can view all the excitement from the beach. The NOSS Sailing Championships can be fun for the entire family, who can make a day out of visiting the sea side.

The Singapore National Sailing Centre was officially opened in 1999. The sprawling 2.4 hectare facility cost over 8 million Singapore dollars and is a testament of the country’s dedication to the sport. It is situated in the south eastern end of the island, enabling it to fully utilise the South-West and North-East monsoons all year round, making it the ideal place for regional and international sailing competitions. The facility is open daily from 9 am to 6 pm, but is closed on public holidays. A full list of current and upcoming activities is available at their website.

The easiest way to get there is by bus or taxi. Tourists staying in Singapore should make sure they pick hotels that are close to bus and train stations. As public transport is fairly extensive, it is possible to reach almost all tourist attractions by mass transport. The Millennium & Copthorne Hotels have several hotels at strategic locations all across the island. Making your hotel reservations in advance may allow you to take advantage of the hotel specials, which may even lead to one or two extra days of magic on the island.
