    100km jet-ski race proposed for Pattaya

    100km jet-ski race proposed for Pattaya


    Narisa Nitikarn
    Pattaya City Hall has been asked to supply a 5 million baht support budget for the staging of a jet-ski event to be named Pattaya International Offshore 2007.

    Justin Lee of Water Cross Asia proposed the idea at a meeting on June 6 at Pattaya City Hall also attended by Pisai Panomwan na Ayutthaya, member of the city council and chairman of the Pattaya Tourism and Sports Committee.
    Lee said that Pattaya has a good reputation for organizing water sports and that the sea here is particularly suitable for jet skiing because the ocean is calm, the hotel accommodation for participants is good, safety standards are high, and the city is easily accessed from the airport.
    The World Jet Ski Championship including the annual Kings Cup Jet Ski competition have also been held here in Pattaya for some years.
    It is proposed that the Pattaya International Offshore event be held over a distance of 100km, which would be the first time a distance of this kind has been competed here, and would attract a large number of overseas participants.
    Lee estimates the number of international class jet ski racers from around the world who would participate in such an event as being no less than 250. He said the prizes should total 300,000 baht and include a trophy.
    Pisai voiced concern that this size of purse would not attract foreign sportsmen, but Lee said that most Jetski professionals did not only compete for the money, but also for the challenge of taking part against a large number of their peers, and in attractive surroundings.
    Pattaya Tourism and Sports Committee will submit this proposal to the city hall authorities for further review.
