The 14th Top of the Gulf Regatta will take place 27th April to 1st May, 2018 in the waters of the Gulf of Thailand, headquartered at the Ocean Marina Yacht Club. Participating keelboats and multihulls are provided free berthing in the marina for the duration of the regatta, giving all sailors and boat owners peace of mind and convenience, allowing everyone to enjoy four days of exciting and competitive racing and the onshore camaraderie and social events each evening.
Note: Organisers will consider Class 0 for TP52 yachts subject to entry numbers.
Encouraging boats of all sizes and sailors of all abilities to enjoy racing in the Gulf of Thailand, the 2018 Top of the Gulf Regatta includes upto 12 classes, including keelboats, multihulls, one-design Platus (competing for the Coronation Cup), beach catamarans, dinghies, Optimists (competing for the Thailand Optimist National Championships), and an IOM Class RC Yachts.
Dinghy classes and the IOM Class RC Yachts will compete on three separate inshore courses, and all have their own independent race management.
With the ASAF Youth Sailing Cup (3rd to 6th May, 2018) taking place immediately after the Top of the Gulf Regatta, also in Pattaya at the Royal Varuna Yacht Club, it's a great opportunity for dinghy sailors to get in some racing practice and familiarize yourself with the local conditions in advance.
