Outrigger Racing at Sentosa
Took part in my 1st outrigger race at Sentosa. The first race was a 12 km race the length of the island, up and around a few buoys. We got off to a bad start as we got sandwiched inbetween the other Aussie boat and the rookies. The rookies should have moved over to give us some more room – but with currents & waves & rookie drivers – it ended up in a little bit of a crash. Later in the afternoon we then did Mixed team race. I guess the best way to describe it was like a relay.

But really, you’re just out enjoying an evening stroll and burning off calories. Honestly, you are completely distracted by the people, music, noise, lights, buskers in the tunnels, laughter, conversations, trying not to bump in to the super slow walkers, dodging drunk people, avoiding stumbling on a paver then before you know it you’ve walked for over an hour. It’s honestly too easy. One hour of walking for me burns off about 300 calories! THE PARTY WALK!« go back
