E-News July 2007

Hi fellow Water Members, 23rd. July 2007

Another month gone by and we are now approaching National Day- 09th. August 2007.
Please note, there will be No Boat Patrol on the 29th. July as we are involved in a
safey boat event. Only Bike Patrol will proceed.

To update you all, we have done many new events over the past few weeks.

* New Guidelines for driving within the Marina. 5 Knot Guideline.
DynaGlass(Boat #1 and #2): 6 persons rev at 2,100 rpm – 5 to 6 knots

5 hp Dingy: 4 persons full throttle 5- 6 knots. If 2 pesons, use half-throttle.

(Please remember that if there are less number of people on board, the boat
will go faster. Do not create “waves” especially when passing by Canoers, Kayakers,
Dragon Boates, Wake-Boarders, etc. You can however go over the 5 knots when responding to emergencies or avoiding danger).

* We now have a Senoko sponsored Weather Monitoring Machine at WWS.
This is to be used for our school programs in future.

* Deloitte has just sponsored us S$5K for our third boat.

* Two new single seater Kayaks will be delivered over the next two weeks- sponsored by Kayak Asia (cher) who organised the Kayak Movie for us. Thank you Cher!

* We had UMC(our donors for disposable gloves) and HTL(donated S$800) do their corporate program with us.

* We had the US NAVY and Singapore NAVY do CIP with us. We will be posting some interesting photo’s on our web-site soon.

* We participated in SMU Metriculation Fair and IRAS Fair.

* We continued our joint patrols with NPARKS on saturdays with our Bike Patrol.
(thanks to regular members like Pat, Penelope, Peck Khee, Edward, Ved n Tun Phong).

* We did Safety Boat for Sinapore Adventure and some School organised events.

* We held our two Camp Enviro-Awareness in June. Thanks to Camp Master Sharon n XJ.
