Pattaya will once again play host to Asia's largest boating regatta when the Top of the Gulf Regatta is held between May 4th and 8th 2012.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - April 11th, 2012 - Pattaya's Ocean Marina Yacht Club is to be the venue for the Top of the Gulf Regatta, which will bring more than 600 sailors and over 300 vessels to the Thai city this May.

Billed as the biggest boating regatta in Asia, the event will be held for the eighth time this year and runs from May 4th to 8th, spanning four days of high-calibre racing across 12 different boat classes.

Racing will take place in the seas off the marina near Jomtien Beach, with boats tearing through the waves off the Gulf coast of Thailand.

Keelboats, multihulls, beach catamarans, dinghies and sailboards will all be involved in the various competitions, with highlights of the programme including the Platu Coronation Cup and the youngsters' Thailand Optimist Nationals event.

Registration gets underway at 10:00 local time on the Friday, with each day's events to be capped off in the evening with a prizegiving ceremony, complete with refreshments.

Organisers are hoping this year's regatta will be the biggest and most competitive yet, with entrants from Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan and Thailand all lined up.
