Singapores Marina Bay area will soon see boating enthusiasts pit wit and skills for the first time as they aim to emerge champion of the Bay Challenge, which will take place 14 - 15 May 2011, in conjunction with Boat Asia 2011.

Race organiser, TMX Show Productions, is partnering the Singapore Sailing Federation (SSF) to bring this race to the Bay for the first time.

The Bay Challenge will see 16 regional teams of three-crew members competing in high performance Laser Bahias in a match race format. Two boats will be locked in a one-on-one battle around a two-lap course. Lasting a short but intense 12 minutes, each match will see the two contesting teams jostle for pole position and pitting their tactical and speed skills against each other. The resulting champion team will walk away with the Challenge trophy and will also have the honour of being crowned the winner of the first-ever Bay Challenge.

Mr. Tan Wearn Haw, CEO, Singapore Sailing Federation said, Singapore Sailings role is to inject vibrancy into the sailing scene and grow the sport. Making it a viable and self-sustaining ecosystem would be a testament to the value proposition of sailing. So we are happy to sanction the upcoming Bay Challenge and excited to grow Bay Challenge as a key sailing event for Singapore and the region with TMX.

Aiming to attract at least 10,000 spectators over two days, Bay Challenge will be set against Marina Bays spectacular skyline which includes Marina Bay Sands, The ArtsScience Museum, The Promontory @ Marina Bay and Marina Bay Financial Centre, one of Singapores largest integrated mixed-use developments and leading business addresses.

Spectators at the Bay Challenge at Marina Bay can also visit Boat Asia 2011. Already in its 19th edition, Boat Asia is one of Asias largest and longest running boat shows and features a stellar showcase of sleek sailing yachts, luxurious powerboats and prestigious lifestyle brands.
