ROYAL ALBATROSS MAST CLIMB
Synopsis
Experience one of the more challenging aspects of a sailor's life and climb the mast 21 metres above the decks of the Royal Albatross. Be it to prepare the sails or to do repairs; mast climbing has been an essential part of tall ship sailing since time immemorial. Sailors would also clamber up to the crow’s nest to watch for land or other ships or approaching storms.
This traditional tall ship boasts four masts that tower high above the waters of Sentosa. They support 22 sails all manually operated by 200+ ropes, just like they were from a bygone era. The Mast Climb is suitable for adults and children over 7 years old that are physically fit and looking to do something excitingly different! Great for that once-in-a-lifetime video/photo on top of a historic tall ship, an exhilarating activity for you at Resorts World Sentosa.

How these seamen used to do it in the olden days is using a harness or a bosun's chair together with a halyard and a winch to be hoisted up to the top. The other way is to secure themselves with a harness and climb up the sailing rig to reach the masthead.

Before ascenders came into the picture for traditional climbing, the ship's crew would have to tie friction knots for the same function of securing them. How friction knots work is that they allow the climber to ascend as long as the rope is slack. However, when pressure is applied, by pulling or if the climber falls, the knot will tighten and stop the climber from falling all the way through.

Nowadays, technology allows for motorised winches that could even allow for a solo climb, without the need to rely on a belayer.

For Royal Albatross, there is an industry attachment for students from the Institute of Technical Education to learn the ropes (literally) in being part of the crew on a tall ship. Part of this course includes learning the different aspects of the vessel and learning how to raise which sails and when.

Now, visitors to Sentosa get to take up this challenge to reach greater heights and reach 21 metres above sea level as they look upon the view beneath them. A reward for conquering a different trial unlike any other in the region.

If you are an explorer looking for adventure, a thrill-seeker, or maybe someone seeking to overcome their fear of heights, this is the activity for you waiting at Resorts World Sentosa.
