It is with great pleasure I write to announce that the Phuket Yacht Club is off to a flying start in 2019 with probably the best and busiest first half in the club’s history.
The Sailor’s Regatta, O’pen Skiff Challenge, Koh Lon Family Fun Day, The PYC Club Championship, Dinghy Racing and with the Annual Multihull Solutions Regatta coming up there is sailing in some form or another for almost everyone ….. every weekend.
Our membership base continues to grow, largely off the back of the youth sailing program and it is fantastic to see an ever-growing core group of junior sailors honing their skills each weekend. It has been said by many a successful Commodore that ‘a yacht club is only as strong as its youth sailing program’ so I’m confident we are on the right track in confirming our position one of Thailand’s leading yacht clubs.
In terms of adult sailing and racing, thirteen boats on the start line for race one was also very impressive with a good turnout from both the Monohull and Multihull fleets. Paul Burke’s new Shaw 650 sports-boat is the water for the first time and we welcome him to the PYC club racing scene.
Moving forward to to events coming up along with the Multihull Solutions Regatta in the 12th to the 15th July we have an overnight rally scheduled to a yet to be determined island which may encourage some of our more cruising orientated sailors to up-anchor, hoist sails and take a leisurely cruise.
More news of these events and others on the club Calendar and why not sign up for the PYC News Letter.
