Phuket Dinghy Series wraps up

Published

 on 

PHUKET: The Phuket Dinghy Series 2015 wrapped up off the coast of Cape Panwa recently, with Optimist and Laser sailors competing from Phuket and Songkla.

A total of 53 young sailors joined the competition in stiff winds and manageable swells. Among the Optimists, male sailors from the Phuket Youth Sailing Club (PYSC) took the three top places, with Nattapong Yongram claiming overall winner.

The girls’ competition was won by Keeratika Klongboon from NAC3SC, while Teerapong Torkratoke from PYSC took the honors in the Laser fleet.

The Phuket Dinghy Series was introduced in 2010 as part of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta, creating a network between sailing clubs to inspire more youth in Thailand to take up the sport.

Establishment of the Phuket Dinghy Series has helped bring many sailing talents and has served as an accessible means of competition for young sailors from Phuket, Phang Nga and Songkhla in order to prepare them for the international competition and the King’s Cup.

International Dinghy classes will race once more from December 7-10 at Kata Beach as part of the Phuket King’s Cup 2015. Classes are divided into Optimist Boys, Optimist Girls, Laser Standard, Laser 4.7 and Topper.
