Sail-World.com : Matchrace Thailand Siam Winery Challenge (Grade 3) 2-4 September 2011

Matchrace Thailand Siam Winery Challenge (Grade 3) 2-4 September 2011

'Team Koo Racing - Matchrace Thailand Siam Winery Challenge'    Alex Samaras
Matchrace Thailand Siam Winery Challenge (Grade 3) - September 2-4, 2011 @ Royal Varuna Yacht Club

Matchrace Thailand Challenge sponsored by Siam Winery will kick off its last event of the year on 2-4 September 2011. Founded upon the purpose of being a training ground for Asian based match racers, Matchrace Thailand has drawn many up and coming teams to the Royal Varuna Yacht Club shore for the past two years. Its effort has inspired other Asian Nations such as Hong Kong and Singapore to start their own match race arena and we hope more opportunities will arise for Asian based match racers.


The good and exciting news for this September event is that the all-Thai girls team will join us. Most of them have been in National Sailing Squad and represented Thailand for many major events. Along with the girls, come the boys from all nations. Some of them will use this event as their stepping-stone to the World Match Racing Tour.

One thing in common, all teams are after the fierce and fun event at which we are best. Fantastic racing view from the beach bar, cold beer, good food and massage next door, who can beat Thailand and Royal Varuna YC for match racing water!

TEAM EM (THA)

Represented Malaysian National Team, Jeremy won numerous regattas in Asia in dinghy class. He started match racing in 2006 with Team China, competing in 32nd America’s Cup and Elba Island Match Racing. Now he brings his teams for warm up races before the Monsoon Cup’s Malaysian Qualifier. His team won this exact qualifier last year, sending them off to match race with the world’s top twelve match race teams in the World Match Racing tour’s Monsoon Cup 2010.

They won Matchrace Thailand Championship in March this year and keep up their performance in Nation Cup in Qatar by coming second in the tough Asian Qualifier fleet. After only 6 months, Maxi’s world ranking moves up from 674 to be 156th place, IMPRESSIVE!


TEAM SINHA (IND)
SKIPPER: ATOOL SINHA
WORLD RANKINGS: 425
Atool’s sailing achievement is too long to be listed here. Simply put, he’s won medals after medals since the time he raced in Optimist to Entreprise Class. Started in Match Racing by being a tactician for the high world ranking Indian skipper, Atool now branches out and is building his own team. He has brought them to Qatar, Russia and now here in Thailand.

TEAM SHAIKH (IND)
SKIPPER: AYAZ SHAIKH
WORLD RANKINGS: 129
Teams like Ayaz are the spin off from the fantastic match race community in Mumbai. They used to crew for other senior skippers but now they are out on their own to show off the Indian home grown match race talents to the world.










Team Finland - Matchrace Thailand Siam Winery Challenge -  Alex Samaras  
TEAM FINLAND (FIN)
SKIPPER: JON ERICKSSON
WORLD RANKINGS: 134
Do I have to say anything about these guys! Well, they have been winner, winner and winner but no one is invincible. Unfortunately, they lost their main trimmer/tactician—Jaano Kempo who returned to his blue water of Estonia.
