Sailing

Overview

Being able to sail your own little boat is a BIG achievement. Many children are now taking the bold step of learning how to sail the Optimist and the fact that children can sail on their own shows how easy and safe sailing can be.

Young sailors learn discipline, independence, team spirit, problem-solving, decision-making and many other traits that are essential in life besides skills that are needed to sail their boats. It is an all-rounded activity and is a sport that will last a lifetime.

Sailors with outstanding performance (based on their Singapore Sailing Federation ranking) and demonstrate school values will be selected to represent the school in the National Primary Schools Sailing Championships.

Pri.3 to Pri.6 pupils with Opti-Racer certificate are eligible to join Sailing.
