TOTGR brings the
sailing family together...
Staging an International regatta requires a lot more than just posting
the Notice of Race (NOR) and racing boats around the scheduled courses.
The sailing organisations on Thailand's Eastern Seaboard posses a wealth
of experience after running National championships each year and
regularly hosting major events like the SEA Games and dinghy class World
titles. Two hours drive to the South and East of Bangkok (See map) is
the hustling and bustling seaside resort city of Pattaya. Stretching
further south is the seemingly endless Jomtien Beach with Ocean Marina
and two towering hotel apartment buildings slap bang in the middle. The
King's very own Royal Varuna Yacht Club is on the northern most tip of
the beach and further south down the coast is the Royal Thai Navy Base
in Sattahip that most the committee members of the Yacht Racing Assoc of
Thailand (YRAT) are drawn from.
