The Phuket Dinghy Series has inspired youth in Southern Thailand to take up sailing since its introduction in 2010. It has featured in four Phuket King’s Cup Regattas and serves to empower the progression of youth sailing. The Series has become a sailing clinic that has gained in popularity among youth sailors (under 15 years old) for its solid coaching content and the friendship amongst participants from various sailing clubs.

This year, the Phuket Dinghy Series enters its fourth successful year, and is sponsored by PTT Global Chemical. The company is endorsing the development of youth sailing and shares the vision of young sailor training as these competitors represent the future of sailing sport in Thailand. PTTGC has recognised the program as a practical starting point to bring sailing closer to the hearts of more Thai people.

Kevin Whitcraft, President of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta Organising Committee, said, “The Phuket Dinghy Series brings many new Thai sailing talents into the arena of competitive youth sailing. It serves as an accessible means of competition for young sailors from many sailing clubs in Phuket, Phang Nga, Songkhla, and as far as Chonburi, in order to prepare them for the International Stage and the Phuket King's Cup Regatta. I would like to thank our sponsor, PTT Global Chemical, for their highly valuable support of the Phuket Dinghy Series, and the company’s assistance in growing the awareness of sailing sport in Thailand.”

Bowon Vongsinudom, President & CEO of PTT Global Chemical, said, “PTT Global Chemical is pleased to support Thai youth sailors and the Phuket Dinghy Series as part of the prestigious Phuket King’s Cup Regatta. Sailing is a sport which is exciting, sustainable, environmentally friendly and increasing in popularity in Thailand. As part of our CSR commitment to providing support to trustworthy, social responsible projects, we are delighted to be the main sponsor for the Phuket Dinghy Series.”

The first series of Phuket Dinghy Series is to be held from 5 to 6 October at Naiyang Beach Resort; the second series is hosted by The Kriss Resident Bang Tao from 26 to 27 October; the final race takes place from 23 to 24 November, and is hosted at Panwa Bay by the 3rd Naval Area Command, Royal Thai Navy. The Phuket Dinghy Series is part of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta, and winners of each class will receive a Royal Award which is to be presented along with other Regatta class winners at Kata Beach Resort and Spa on 6 December 2013.
