(31 Mar 2021) Organisers of Thailand’s Top of the Gulf Regatta have confirmed that the 2021 regatta will take place in November.
Hosted by the Ocean Marina Yacht Club in Jomtien, the annual event attracts sailors from around the world who compete in a variety of classes from Optimists and dinghies, to catamarans and keelboats, including the S\V14 Para Sailing Championship.
The Ocean Marina Yacht Club, currently undergoing a major expansion and redesign, will be open and ready to host regatta participants in November, with the dates to be announced in the official Notice of Race in due course.
William Gasson, Co-Chairman of the Top of the Gulf Regatta Organising Committee said, “We will celebrate the re-opening of Ocean Marina Yacht Club and support Thailand’s tourism recovery by hosting the Top of the Gulf Regatta in November this year. We are working closely with local authorities and stakeholders to ensure all measures align with government advice and that the regatta will be safe and fun for everyone.”
If everything goes according to plan in November, the Top of the Gulf Regatta will return to its regular date slot in 2022 and is currently scheduled for 30 April to 4 May.
