ONEº15 Marina Club Takes Home Top Honours At Annual Boating Awards

At the fifth edition of the Asia Boating Awards, held at Le Royal Meridien Hotel in Shanghai on 17 April 2009, ONEº15 Marina Club was awarded with the Best Asian Marina/Yacht Club of the Year following a stellar year of developments and events.

ONEº15 Marina Club was the proud host of the inaugural Volvo Ocean Race Singapore Stopover, which was the longest one on the race schedule. This was also the very first time the race route took the teams through Asia and ONEº15 Marina Club was the venue of the first and only stopover in South East Asia. ONEº15 Marina Club went to great lengths to ensure that the sailors spent a most enjoyable Christmas and New Year’s in Singapore during the three weeks of the stopover.

The success of the event and the excellent reviews of all the facilities that ONEº15 Marina Club provided to the teams, guests and visitors, was a boost and helped ONEº15 Marina Club win the Best Asian Marina/Yacht Club title.

Singapore was also given the honour of Asia’s Maritime Capital. This was the second time Singapore took home the prestigious award. This accolade was an acknowledgement of all the hard work and effort that has been spent on developing the city to become a sailing and boating hub.

ONEº15 Marina Club was established with the vision of becoming one of the boating hubs in Asia and this award has moved the club one step closer to fulfilling its goal. The Marina has grown since it opened in terms of the hospitality it offers to all its members and guests and also the ability to host international events.

The Marina has proven itself as being capable of hosting regional and international events such as the Volvo Ocean Race and also Boat Asia. The Marina’s promise to its members remains the same, and it continues to strive to achieve its goal of being a nautical hub. After hosting all these successful events,  ONEº15 Marina Club is now looking to carry on further improving its services and is constantly on the look out for opportunities to elevate its status while at the same time, bring to its members memorable experiences that only ONEº15 Marina Club can offer.

Said Mr Arthur Tay, Chairman and Group Managing Director, SUTL Group of Companies, “ These past two years have been a whirlwind of developments for ONEº15 Marina Club capped by the
historic stopover of the Volvo Ocean Race. This award as Asia’s best is a really fitting award for the team at ONEº15 Marina Club that has been working so hard to fulfill our vision of being an Asian marina club of premier pedigree. Being recognized as The Best Asian Marina is a distinguished accolade for ONEº15 Marina Club and it will spur us on to scale even greater heights.”

This award is another testament to ONEº15 Marina Club’s capabilities of hosting world-class events such as the Volvo Ocean Race Singapore Stopover.
