Skipper: Shaun Toh Hong Yi
Shaun Toh has over 10 years of sailing experience and picked up keelboat sailing 2 years ago. He was the skipper for most keelboat regattas, but being the versatile funky dude he is, he is also the world number 5 bowman (2010’s world university match racing championships).
This young skipper is the typical breed of passionate racers who has taken the regional scene by storm. In 2010 alone, he took part in a remarkable 10 keelboat regattas while pursuing a business degree at the Singapore Management University (SMU).
His passion for sailing has also taken him to the shores of Shenzhen, in the China Cup 2010 Regatta. Shaun was the tactician on board Team SMU sailing, which came in a remarkable 22nd position despite the team having only trained twice.

Mains Trimmer: Calvin Lim– Calvin is also a passionate sailor with a love for the beach and corners. He is also highly experienced, with a world byte championship title under his belt, an achievement not many can brag about.
Jib Trimmer: Brandon Heng– Brandon picked up sailing 2 years ago and has been sailing a lot alongside Shaun many regattas. Hand picked and talented, Brandon definitely has an edge over his more experienced counterparts on the other boats.
Bowman: Alexi Lim– Alexi has over 6 years of dinghy sailing experience and has recently converted to sailing on the keelboat in the past year. He has shown true dedication in picking up the ropes and his impressive agility will put many more experienced bowmen to shame. Do watch out for him when it comes to bottom mark roundings as his spinnaker drops are rumoured to be exceptional.
