The annual Ambassadors’ Cup in Singapore has evolved into one of the biggest informal social events in the diplomatic circle, with this year’s exceeding expectations like never before. On the 7th November, a 3-hour race with almost 50 participating yachts was held at the Changi Sailing Club; over 20 High Commissioners, Embassy Officials, and their families were in attendance.
With Team Panama bagging the first place, elaborate après-sailing drinks soon followed, and the Saturday was concluded with a Brazilian-themed jamboree. The extraordinary function was possible with conglomerates including Airbus Helicopters, Seara and the World Of Diamonds Group as sponsors.
As refreshing cocktails, great wines and beers and a sumptuous dinner pleased guests, a live band set the perfect ambience. Among those in attendance were Sam Tan (Minister of State, Prime Minister’s Office), H.E. Yael Rubinstein (Ambassador of Israel to Singapore), H.E. Dr Michael Pulch (Ambassador and Head of Delegation of European Union to Singapore), H.E. Alfredo A. Spiegel Aponte (Ambassador of Panama to Singapore), H.E.
