RASI II- Thomas Miller Challenge Trophy
On Sat 22nd April RASI II took place on the water linking Sentosa to Singapore. The event saw six teams compete for the Thomas Miller Trophy in order to raise funds for Mission to Seafarers. Spectators, organisers and support staff were all on board the tall ship Royal Albatross. The Thomas Miller Trophy was specially created for the event with the Singapore office commissioning a new plinth and cover to be made locally before it was presented.
The Competing teams were as follows:
- Raffles Quay Rabble
- Team Willis Towers Watson
- HFW Wolfpack
- Team Hill Dickinson
- Singapore Maritime Academy Team
- Singapore Maritime Academy Team 2
The heats took place in the morning under an overcast sky, whereas the finals were held in the afternoon with the weather just about holding after an earlier storm!
