Top of the Gulf regatta

Posted on April 30, 2018


Blue skies and tropical conditions were missing on the first day of this year’s Top of the Gulf Regatta, but it failed to dampen the spirits of participants who are competing in the five-day series raced off the coast of Pattaya.

There was a multi-national turn out of boats including those from China and the US to compete in the regatta that hax its headquarters at the Ocean Marina, just seven km south of mainbay Pattaya.

Founded in 2005, the 2018 Top of the Gulf Regatta is being hosted by Ocean Marina, 27 April to 1 May.

Owned and organised by Ocean Property, the regatta is hosted annually by Ocean Marina Yacht Club with support from the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand, Royal Thai Navy, Royal Varuna Yacht Club and Pattaya City.

The event is the largest multi-class sailing event of its kind in Asia, incorporates the Coronation Cup and the Thailand National Optimist Championships, and is the only regatta in Thailand hosted at a marina.

Top of the Gulf Regatta Presented by Ocean Marina claimed Silver for “Best Amateur Sports Event of the Year in Thailand” at the 2016 Asian Sports Industry Awards, and was voted ‘Asian Regatta of the Year’ at the 2014 Asian Marine & Boating Awards.
