Day one was the start of things to come, and although the scratch team aboard 154 had a day of learning how to sail together, the other three boats set the scene for the next two days. When the crew on board 154 got their act together, all four boats experienced some very close racing indeed, and produced a mixed bag of results for all.

The weather was ideal for sailing, although day one was very hot. There was a slight chop throughout the three days with breeze around 7 knots on day one. Day two started off very light, but cloud cover gave crews some respite from the sun at least. As the wind picked up it backed almost 90°, but the Race Officer had everything well under control and set great courses throughout the regatta. With regular changes in wind direction, all crews had fun picking the shifts and the day provided some of the best and closest racing we have had at Ocean Marina. When one race finish was decided by 10 cm you know it's been fun.

Once again Ocean Marina has provided crews with some of the best racing around in a beautiful location and great facilities. In his ‘thank you’ remarks, Justin explained that he enjoyed the racing here as much as anywhere, and the camaraderie between crews is exceptional.

Thanks to Scott Finsten and Ocean Marina Jomtien for providing the infrastructure necessary to hold such a great Championship.

Congratulations to K Thammasak for being the perfect Race Officer. It cannot be underestimated how much difference a well-run Committee boat makes to the crews’ enjoyment.

Thanks to FLS. Supporters of racing in Thailand. Providers of trophies and drinks for all.

Thanks to Doug for his behind-the-scenes preparation work.

Thanks to the staff at the Marina Office and the Pier Restaurant.
