Thailand’s Top of the Gulf Regatta, Asia’s largest multi-class sailing event, celebrates its 10th anniversary this year and will welcome a strong fleet of sailors from around the world.
With over 250 boats and 700 sailors expected to take part from more than 20 countries, we are planning for one of the biggest and best regattas yet.
Entries are already coming in from overseas in the keelboat and multihull classes – the “big boat” fleet. Oi! (AUS) and One Sails (AUS), both TP52’s, look set to lead the racing class and will be up against a new boat to the region that is being shipped from Australia to compete (details to be announced soon), and together with many top IRC boats in Asia confirmed to compete including Foxy Lady VI (SIN) and Fujin (AUS), will make up a strong international fleet.
Joining the big boat fleet and RS:Ones will be over 60 single and double-handed dinghies (Lasers, 29ers, 420, 470 etc.) and beach catamarans, including a number of Thai and regional gold-medal sailors from the recent SEA Games, as well as over 120 junior sailors from Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Myanmar competing in the Thailand Optimist National Championships.
