KepLand launches sailing training centre
Keppel Land has taken another step in developing a waterfront lifestyle, launching Singapore's first and only Royal Yachting Association-accredited (RYA) sailing training centre at Marina at Keppel Bay. Setting up the Keppel Bay Sailing Academy (KBSA) is a natural progression now that the marina is up and running and serves to enhance the amenities at the Keppel Bay precinct. 'Keppel Land is the only real estate developer in Singapore who plans holistically by having a marina as part of the land infrastructure,' said Keppel Land Singapore Residential CEO Augustine Tan. 'So now we're not only putting emphasis on the hardware but also now putting into place plans for the software with the launch of this training facility.' The internationally recognised RYA training scheme requires the facilities bearing its mark to meet high standards. 'We are really pleased to be awarding RYA recognition to our first training centre in Singapore. People training at KBSA can now be sure they are receiving world class training,' said RYA chief examiner James Stevens.
