The NeilPryde Racing Series is continuing its 2013 global tour with the initial stopovers in Myanmar, Singapore, Qingdao and Pattaya. The NeilPryde Windsurfing Racing Series is unique in that it provides a platform for windsurfers of all levels, ages and ability to compete together on a level playing field on the ISAF windsurfing one-design class, the RS:One.

The Myanmar event started with the pre-Sea Games regatta – a big practice run for the 2013 Sea Games to be held in December at Ngwe Saung Beach. The RS:One Class represented the biggest fleet (27 racers) amongst other sailing classes such as the Optimist, 420 and lasers. Thailand, Myanmar, Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia sent their best racers to battle in the rough Myanmar sea. Thailand was initially dominating but Myanamar's young racers, who started windsurfing only eight months ago, delivered memorable performances and results.

The next two stops of the Series were Singapore and Qindao, in collaboration to the Extreme Sailing Series™. As Official Windsurfing Supplier to the Extreme Sailing Series™, the NeilPryde Racing Series warmed up the Extreme Sailing Series™ audience in the breathtaking race venues of Marina Bay in Singapore, right in the middle of the city, and in the impressive Qingdao Olympic venue and its nautical stadium.

Finally, the NeilPryde Racing Series joined the 2013 TOGR (Top of the Gulf Regatta) for its second collaboration featuring an international fleet of 29 competitors from Thailand, Myanmar, Indonesia and India, racing in stadium regatta configuration with courses close to the shore and audience.

'Being part of the 2013 TOGR Regatta was a good opportunity for our junior sailors to participate in an international event at home, and to compete with the RS:One one-design ISAF Class. Our youth sailors enjoyed two wonderful days of racing giving them encouragement for the future', said Prapart Sangngern, a teacher at the Pattaya City 7 School and coach-cum-initiator of the Windsurfing Association of Thailand (WATH) Youth Development Programme.

In June, the NeilPryde Racing Series will fly to Istanbul with the Extreme Sailing Series™ and to Dunkerque for its first 24 hour team relay format race course. This will lead the fleet into the RS:One European Championships to be held in Brest in the first week of July.
