Australian Maid arrived last night and wasn't sure of the regatta anchorage so as in the years past Tradewinds has now the green flashing strobe hoisted out front. Another new unexpected arrival is the 38 foot Bavaria Knot@work
which has been cruising the S.A. Asian area for the past few years with her owners, the husband and wife team of Greg and his wife Lever. They intend entering Cruising Class which now must be the biggest class in the regatta.

Stunning views ? I thought the cameras on the Apollo moon mission 40 years ago had far better clarity !

Xena just arrived from Hong Kong this morning. She is an X55 and is a surprise entry as she is not yet listed on the Entry List so there may be more boats coming than expected.
Meanwhile the Sawadee Live Cam has been re positioned to view the boats at anchor and before anyone calls me about the Macgregor 26 shitbox out front, I'm having it moved from camera view.

The swish 4.8 m. RIB donated to Samui's Juniors by Charlie Dwyer is now up and running as of today. Special thanks to the Phuket guys who helped make this possible, when most of their staff had disappeared for Songkran holidays. Once they knew it was a boat donated for the Samui Juniors, they pulled out all the stops to get the boat prepared. They are Jock Cromie who delivered the boat and used his local influence to prepare the boat, they were, Magic Marine (Craig), Outboard Marine, Chalong… Continue

The juniors received a tremendous boost to their program when Charlie Dyer, skipper of the superyacht Yanneke 2, donated his used 4.5 m. RIB to the club. With a centre console, big engine and a shade fitting, the coaches can now enjoy a bit of comfort while on the water. We all thank you heaps Charlie ! Also a big thank you to Jock Cromie, owner of charter yacht Fi Tuen, for towing the boat over from Phuket.

The Juniors entrant this year is the 34 ft. sloop Smooth and will be racing in Cruising Class. We are buying a new mainsail for B66K so if anyone would like to have their logo on the sail for B30K, please let us know soon. The boat regularly charters from Bo Phud so you will get good value as the logo should last about 7 years which is the life of the sail.
