Western Circuit Sailing Regatta 

SMU Sailing’s very own regatta, the SMU-RM Western Circuit Sailing Regatta is held over 3 weekends in August. This Singapore Sailing sanctioned regatta has become one of Singapore’s biggest keelboat events and has become well-known for its challenging courses and fun filled post-race parties.

The usually calm and serene waters off Raffles Marina will be the setting for top local and international teams to pit their skills and wits against each other as the sea becomes a fierce arena where boats (and crews) of different shapes and sizes fight it out in a varied range of classes. Coinciding with the notorious Southwest monsoon, sailors will have to be at their best as the winds fill in.
