Asia’s sailing enthusiasts rubbed shoulders with billionaires in Singapore several weekends ago weekend at the region’s biggest yacht show on Sentosa.

A U$100m dollar super yacht was among the exhibits on display, and visitors will also be able to clamber on submarines and speed boats.

The industry has been weathering rough seas in Europe, and there are hopes Asia’s rich will help offset the slowing sales.

Err thinking of JosTeo, GraceFu and other millionaire ministers with serious $ to spare?

China Horse Club, S’pore Turf Club got no class: cheapskates

Singapore hopes to create a horse race that can that can match globally recognised events like the Melbourne Cup or Ascot.

The China Horse Club is organising the race and wants to attract an international audience as well as racing enthusiasts from mainland China.

It is offering $2m in prize money, but as Sharanjit Leyl reports from Singapore, that does not match the prize money on offer by big races elsewhere.

The S’pore Turf Club is a de facto govt agency.
