Ocean Marina Jomtien


Justin came all the way from Australia to take part and uphold the good name of Easy Tiger. Marco, Nathan and Doug were there to make sure he had to fight for it. Day one was the start of things to come and although the scratch team aboard 154 had a day of learning how to sail together the other three set the scene for the next two days. As the crew on board 154 got their act together all four boats experienced some very close racing and produced a mixed bag of results for all.


The weather was ideal for sailing, although day one was very hot. There was a slight chop throughout the three days with winds of about 7 knots on day one. Day two started off very light but cloud cover gave crews some respite from the sun at least. As the wind picked up it backed almost 90 degrees but the race officer had everything well under control and set great courses throughout the regatta. With a regular change in wind direction crews had fun picking the shifts and the day provided some of the best, close racing we have had at ocean Marina. When one race finish was decided by 10 centimeters you know it has been fun.


And so once again Ocean Marina has provided crews with some of the best racing around in a beautiful location and great facilities. In his thankyou remarks, Justin explained that he enjoyed the racing here as much as anywhere and the camaraderie between crews is exceptional.


Thanks to Scott Finsten and Ocean Marina Jomtien for providing the infrastructure necessary to hold such a great Championship.

Congratulations to  K Thammasak for being the perfect race officer. It cannot be underestimated how much difference a well run Committee boat makes to the crews enjoyment.

Thanks to FLS. Supporters of racing in Thailand. Providers of trophies and drinks for all.

Thanks to Doug for his behind the scenes preparation work.

Thanks to the staff at the Marina office and the Pier restaurant.
