    3rd Gulf International Regatta at Ocean Marina

    The third Top of the Gulf International Regatta opens 3 May
    by Peter Cummins, Pattaya
    The Ocean Property Company Limited, in collaboration with Raimon Land and many organizations in both the public and private sectors, will hold the third ‘Top of the Gulf’ regatta, to be sailed out off the Ocean marina Yacht Club and residential properties, Jomtien Beach, from 3 - 7 May, 2007.

    The third Top of the Gulf International Regatta, 3-7 May 2007, will be a five-day yachting extravaganza.
    Among the many events proposed for the five-day yachting extravaganza, will be the ‘Platu Coronation Cup,’ the TOG Regatta Trophy and the Optimist National Championship. It is anticipated by the organizing committee that upwards of 500 sailors in craft ranging from international keelboats, to the diminutive training dinghy the Optimist, will compete in the 10 classes. The event is to take place during 3-7 May 2007 at Ocean Marina Yacht Club, Jomtien Beach, Pattaya.
    William J. Gasson, Chairman of the Regatta Committee, pointed out that in just two short years, the Top of the Gulf Regatta has been widely accepted on the tightly-packed international yacht racing circuit, with approval from all authorizing bodies.
    This year, the organizing committee has prepared for an even more splendid event to commemorate His Majesty the King’s 80th Birthday anniversary.
    This year’s participants will come from some six countries: Australia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and, of course, a huge contingent from host country Thailand, including upwards of 80 junior Optimist sailors (under-16-year-olds).
    As well as the principal sponsors noted above, this year’s Regatta is also supported by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the Royal Thai navy at Sattahip, the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand (YRAT), Thai Airways International, and the Royal Varuna Yacht Club, Pattaya.
    Rut Subniran, member of the Sailing Committee and representative of Yacht Racing Association of Thailand (YRAT), says that this international racing program has the objectives of establishing Pattaya as an international yachting and sailing venue and promoting the sailing event as one of the main yacht racing events in the Asian region, as well as helping the economy of Pattaya.
    Mrs. Nusara (Assakul) Banyatpiyaphod, President of Ocean Marina Yacht Club as Regatta Host venue and Main sponsor, says that Ocean Marina Yacht Club has been appointed by the Sport Technical Committee of the upcoming 24th SEA Games 2007 as the official venue for practicing, training and competing for all national sailing events. Also, the Yacht Club will be the main operating headquarters of the Games, taking roles of announcing official scores and results of all types of water sports at the event to be held in December.

    Top Of The Gulf International Regatta 2007 In Pattaya Tacks Off To Good Start

    TOP OF THE GULF INTERNATIONAL REGATTA 2007 IN PATTAYA TACKS OFF TO GOOD START

    The Top of the Gulf International Regatta (TOG) 2007 and Coronation Cup, the prestigious yacht racing event, the largest on the Eastern Seaboard, started successfully on May 3rd at Ocean Marina Yacht Club for the 3rd successive year. The regatta is timed to commemorate the auspicious occasion of the Coronation of His Majesty the King.

    The event lasts for 5 days and will attract 500 competitors and 350 craft, over twice as many as last year, from Thailand and 6 other Asian countries, namely Singapore, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Malaysia, Japan and Australia.

    The top trophy in the competition will be the prestigious Platu 25 Coronation Cup, under the royal sponsorship of His Majesty the King, an avid sailing enthusiast, who wishes to promote sailing as a national sport and to elevate the status of Thailand as a viable international sporting contender.

    The two other trophies are the Top of the Gulf International Regatta Trophy for all classes and The Optimist National Championship for young skippers aged between 8-15 years old. The trophies will be only awarded to the top three teams with the highest cumulative scores on the last day.

    The classes in the regatta are:
    1. Platu,
    2. Keelboat,
    3. Cruising Keelboat,
    4. Sportsboat,
    5. Ocean Multi-hulls,
    6. Mono-hull Dinghy,
    7. Optimist
    8. Super Mod.

    The itinterary of the regatta is as folos:

    Thursday 3rd May 2007. Registration Day

    This, the most impressive sailing event on the Eastern Seaboard, aims to promote Thailand as a firm contender among the annual Asian regional yacht racing programmes and also to attract international and local sailors of the highest calibre. The regatta also serves as a training ground whereby Thai teams may hone their sailing skills to a high enough standard to compete internationally.

    It also has the knock on effect of promoting the growth of marine leisure-related businesses in the Gulf of Thailand, covering sectors such as yachting, boat-building, hotel, real estate and marine tourism.

    The Regatta is organised by the Top of the Gulf Regatta Organising Committee under the auspices of the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand under Royal Patronage, the Platu Club, the Royal Varuna Yacht Club and the Ocean Marina Yacht Club.
