For what may well be Sea Bunny's last visit to Singapore we found ourselves berthing at the Republic of Singapore Yacht Club Marina. Last visit was in 2008. We were greeted like long lost friends by the Administration Manager, Zeina, who worked there in 2008 and was back there now.
RSYC is a delightful club with old colonial charm and excellent facilities onshore - the pool and moderately priced restaurant were what we used most. With a short walk to bus stops into town.
The Marina itself does have one, fairly major, drawback. It is situated in a very busy part of the harbour, right next door to the jetty used by fast launches servicing the ships out at anchor. These launches create significant wash - they have not heard of "no wake speed". The following video clip shows just over a minute and a half of activity - it has not been edited!
The videos don't seem to work on iPad - they do on (Windows) PC - sorry
As there is no wave break between this jetty and the marina boats roll a lot, sometimes quite violently. You can feel seasick walking down the pontoon. Below is a mild example - should have taken the stern of Sea Bunny!
We got a "single" berth, which meant we were able to secure Sea Bunny in the centre by all four "corners" with springs (ropes that go diagonally from the bow or stern) to stop surging. While we were not in contact with the pontoon at all the wear on the mooring lines was significant - until we improved chafe protection and deployed rubber snubbers.
Negotiations for a wave break are in hand.
