Go Yachting – Asia's leading marine TV production specialists – have been appointed official broadcaster for the 2012 Top of the Gulf Regatta – Asia's largest sailing event. Held at Ocean Marina Yacht Club, Jomtien Beach, Pattaya, Thailand 4th to 8th May 2012, this is the second year Go Yachting have filmed the event.

Said Duncan Worthington, Co-Founder of Go Yachting, 'We're really pleased to be back filming the Top of the Gulf Regatta for a second year. Working with the organisers in 2011 was great and we are looking forward to developing on last year's successful delivery.'

Over 600 participants competing in more than 300 water craft are expected to take part in this years Top of the Gulf (TOG) Regatta, and racing will take place in four course areas off Ocean Marina Yacht Club. The keelboats and multihulls will race in Course Area 1; dinghies and beach catamarans in Course Area 2; and the Optimists, competing in the Thailand Optimist Nationals, will race in Course Area 3. New for this year is the NeilPryde Racing Series – upto 30 one-design ISAF RS:One windsurfs – which will be taking part in the Top of the Gulf Regatta over the first two days, and racing in Course Area 4.

'The multi-class nature of the Top of the Gulf Regatta makes it quite unique. Having such a diverse range of craft on the water, spread over four different course areas each independently operated, and with the addition of the NeilPryde Racing Series this year, makes it one of the most complicated regattas to film,' commented Worthington. Adding, 'We will be using the latest High Definition (HD) cameras shooting from high-speed support boats, as well as a series of waterproof onboard HD cameras that will put the viewer in the heart of the action.'

'The Go Yachting team did a wonderful job of filming the Top of the Gulf Regatta last year. It's a difficult event to film and they managed to tell the story and cover all of the regatta's elements, in an excellent Highlights Show,' said Bill Gasson, Founder and Chairman of the Top of the Gulf Regatta organising committee.

Since launching in early 2011, Go Yachting have filmed many regional regattas and produced dedicated Highlights Shows for broadcast online and satellite TV networks globally, including: 2012 Royal Langkawi International Regatta, 2012 The Bay Regatta, 2011 Phuket King's Cup Regatta, 2011 Phuket Raceweek, 2011 Samui Regatta, 2011 Phuket Multihull Championship, 2011 Hua Hin Regatta, and more.

'Our goal from the beginning has been to offer professional TV and Production services for the marine leisure industry in Asia, at competitive rates. We have a team of dedicated TV professionals who can produce, and have produced, international-standard TV productions for global broadcast,' added Worthington.

All Go Yachting event productions, including the monthly Go Yachting show, are produced in Full HD for traditional (satellite, cable, terrestrial) broadcast, and are hosted online at www.MarineScene.asia, and through associated social media outlets on facebook, twitter, google+, youtube and vimeo, ensuring a large global reach.
