Keerati Bualong, the Thai sailor who won the 2007 World Championship in Pattaya, continued his winning ways in the 2009 CII Asia-Pacific Championship. After 12 races, he finished with a 21 point lead over Singapore sailor Terence Choo and the rest of the 32 boat fleet.
Thailand’s Keerati Bualong, the 2007 Byte CII World Champion, (also sailed at the Royal Varuna Yacht Club in Pattaya), now adds the 2009 Asian Byte CII Championship to his growing list of accomplishments with a thoroughly convincing win. At 17, he is too old to compete in the 2010 Youth Olympic Games but his presence in the regatta certainly set the standard.
