ONE15 Christmas Boat Light Parade™ 2021

ONE15 Christmas Boat Light Parade™ 2021

Dec 13, 2021

ONE°15 Marina Sentosa Cove kick-started its Christmas celebration with the annual ONE15 Christmas Boat Light Parade™ on 4 December, after a one-year hiatus due to COVID-19.

This event, dedicated to our boating community, lit up Sentosa Cove on a Saturday night and the marina was the liveliest it has been in two years.

15 participating boats came together to compete for a total of $10,000 berthing credits across eight different categories. The judges had a tough time deciding as many boats were elaborately decorated with lots of efforts put it.

The evening began with Santa arriving in a jetski who drew cheers from passer-bys along the boardwalk. Following Santa’s appearance, boats united in a Symphony of Horns and turned on the lights on their boats. With the dimming of sunlight, Sentosa Cove glowed with dazzling fairy lights, colourful LED displays, and inflatable Christmas characters such as Santa Claus, reindeer, snow man and the crafty Grinch (who, together with boat Abenaki, stole the show that night!)

Due to strong winds, the cruising parade had to be cancelled. Nonetheless, our judges went around to the different boats to rate the displays. Our members and boaters were also invited to vote for their favourite boat through an online poll. A total of 203 votes poured in within an hour and TEXSIN emerged the winner of the People’s Choice! A lucky participant from the online poll also walked away with a bottle of wine from the Club.

The crowd truly immersed themselves in the festive spirit – photo-taking, posing with the boats and even donning on Christmas gears!

Boaters’ Bar was packed with diners

Everyone was glad to attend an event after such a long time and feedback from boaters included “it was a very uplifting event”, “what a fun night”, “the Boat Light Parade brought the much needed festive spirit” and “thanks for a great event”!

We couldn’t agree more and we look forward to holding more events as such!
