After a successful 10th Anniversary of the Top of the Gulf Regatta planning is well under way for the 11th running of the Regatta with the date set for 30th April to 4th May 2015. Racing for the keelboats and Multihulls will be 1st - 4th May whereas the beach launched fleet and Optimists who compete for the Thai National title will sail a three day Regatta 1st-3rd May. The registration day for the keelboat classes together with a practice race will be 30th April, as will the opening party.

The ownership of the Regatta has been vested in Ocean Property, the owner of Ocean Marina Yacht Club who have advised that the format of the Regatta will remain basically the same but will evolve over the coming years in response to competitors needs. Kirati Assakul and William Gasson have been appointed Co-Chairmen of the 2015 Top of the Gulf Regatta Committee to ensure a continuity of the basic concept and operations of the regatta.

Extensions to the Marina are completed with an additional 60 berths, dredging and the addition of a 75-ton Travel Lift. With the current dredging and the more favourable tides for the 2015 event there should be little impediment with Marina Management input for yachts with a deeper draft such as the TP 52’s to participate, this, with the favourable berthing rates for yachts proceeding to Ko Samui bodes well for an increased participation in 2015. We have already received an advance request from a TP 52, which has not participated previously.
