- Sailcation Featured on Expat Living!
We were really excited to host Leanda Rathmell from Expat Living. The day started out a little cloudy. However, we got really lucky with strong winds that sent our boat heeling (when the boat tilts at an angle due to the winds in the sails). We had to take special care to ensure our drinks didn't spill! Leanda also got her hand at the wheel. She took to it really quickly and steered us towards the Southern Islands effortlessly. When we reached the Lazarus beach, Leanda and her friends changed into their swimsuits and decided to kayak to the beach with a couple drinks!

- Discover Sailing Asia on NIKKEI Asia
A thought-provoking piece was written by NIKKEI Asia writer Mayuko commenting on how restless Singaporeans deal with the boredom of staying within the borders. But with a little exploration, one would soon realize that if even if they can't take to the skies - a plethora of adventures awaits for them at sea! Photo courtesy of Leonard Lim and his family.
- Discover Sailing Asia Gets Interviewed with CNA938
On the 18th of September, DSA had the honor of being interviewed on CNA938's Morning Show, Money Mind - speaking about Staycations at Sea. Our CEO, Chong Wei Yong, spoke on numerous topics pertaining to yacht cruises that have both been a blessing and a curse to travel. He highlighted the unique experience that came with sailing and the sudden appreciation that arose from it during the travel ban as more Singaporeans looked towards home for a unique travel experience. He noted that out of all our packages, it seems that our 2D1N Sailing Staycation package was at a tie with our 3HR Sailing Experience. Wei Yong also touched on some personal stories such as his experience in sailing across different countries and his motivations for starting Discover Sailing Asia. He notes the difficulties COVID-19 has imposed upon the company but also highlights the joys of sailing that encourages him to continue sailing - much to the envy of the CNA hosts. Overall, the 15-minute segment was a light-hearted and educational focus at the insights of running a yacht company amidst a pandemic. For the listeners who missed it, you can catch DSA's interview in the video below.

- Ishigaki - Keelung Friendship Regatta - Offshore Sailing Experience
Awesome bluewater sailing and offshore experience for the group that went to Taipei / Ishigaki to take part in this Annual regatta. The 136nm bluewater passage took us about 25hrs to complete and we had everything from mirror like conditions to galeforce wind as we went rocketing into Ishigaki in the last couple of hours of the race with 30knt gusts. Memories of waking up to hoist the spinnaker on a Beneteau 40.7 in the middle of the Japan sea at 1am in the morning in 15knts of true, sitting on a mirror-like glassy sea just 2 hours later, this is something you'll never experience sailing 5 miles from the coast. You gotta go out there and live it. Well done and a pat on the back for the Offshore Bluewater sailing virgins that joined us for this one... ;) wet, cold, tired and miserable - loving it!
