The Top of the Gulf Regatta will return to the Gulf of Thailand for the 12th year in 2016. What started in 2005 with a number of small racing events at Pattaya's Ocean Marina Yacht Club has become one of the largest racing events in Thailand with participants coming from Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Japan, UK and USA to name a few. The regatta is a collaboration between Ocean Marina Yacht Club, Royal Varuna Yacht Club and the Royal Thai Navy and is held under the auspices of the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand.

Top of the Gulf Regatta has a history of supporting diversity of boats and sailors and gives opportunities to youth and beginner sailors through its variety of classes. A number of individual races will take place during the Top of the Gulf Regatta 2016, including Platu Coronation Cup 2016, which is Asia's largest One-Design competition; Thailand Optimist National Championships 2016, now in its 39th year; and RS:One Asian Championship 2016 with some 30 competitors from all over Asia.

In addition to the sporting events, Top of the Gulf Regatta also offers a range of social events and parties, including the opening ceremony and cocktail party, daily price giving and drinks on the lawn and the finishing Ocean Marina Gala Dinner party. The Regatta Village gives sponsors and brands an opportunity to engage with guests and sailors.
