Corsairs to conquer Singapore this weekend!

This weekend, Singapore will be treated to a fun and exciting sailing event involving six Corsair trimarans in the iconic Marina Bay. Later next week, spectators will get to see the Extreme 40s racing in the same Bay.

The island state of Singapore is about to see just how much fun sailing can be be when a fleet of six Corsairs sail into the iconic Marina Bay this coming weekend.

Since Corsair Marine appointed a local dealer in Singapore, Pro Sail Asia, earlier this year, the level of interest has grown rapidly. All six Corsairsa are permanently based in Singapore.

This weekend’s schedule is jam packed with exciting, fun stuff and for those who can stay until 7 December, they will get an up close and personal look at the big boys with their big toys. That’s when the Extreme 40s start racing, also in Marina Bay.

CEO of Corsair Marine, Richard ward, shall also be in attendance.
