Well, not exactly the high seas. But a local bank offers free sailing sessions in Marina Bay, in downtown Singapore. It’s tough to get a slot as it’s very popular, and the program was halted for quite a while during Covid. But once they re-started the program, Daddy quickly scored some seats. He and Nyan kept it a surprise from Mommy, who loves to sail. Here are Mommy and Nyan just before the event:
Here we are, getting ready, and then boarding the dinghy that took us out to the sailboats.
We think the boats they use are known as SM40’s, if that means anything to you, dear reader. Whatever: it was pretty great! Check out all these pics.
Nyan helped out with pulling the lines and whatnot (can you tell your correspondent doesn’t know much about sailing?)
Some great views from the boat and the dinghy, too. Singapore sure is a photogenic place:
The whole thing lasted about 45 minutes. Highly recommended!
Afterwards, we took a casual family stroll around downtown, walking down some picturesque streets and ending up in Chinatown.
