Koh Samui Yachting Guide - Samui Yacht Club Regatta
The Samui Yacht Club now holds a monthly mini-regatta for local yachters. This is bolstered by the big yearly event – the Koh Samui Island Regatta, and is a major international sporting event where old scores are settled, temperatures boil over and secrets are revealed. Samui is soon to have its own Royal yacht Marina, a development of house which benefit from personal yachts being moored on the doorstep of residents. The breeze around the north west of the island makes it very good for yachting.
Catamaran charting is increasingly popular as a holiday option for families. Yachts are chartered from a professional company and then taken out for an island hopping holiday. Yachting Siam is an up and coming company and is currently designing new vessels. WILDERNESS 1480 - EVIA BLUE is one. They are presently well into the build of 'Evia Blue' a Schionning Designs Wilderness 1480 with the interior fit-out continuing apace. Top name equipment is being fitted from brands such as Edson, Harken and Lewmar. The performance rig is being supplied by All Yacht Spars and a comprehensive set of custom sails is being designed by North. Photos and project report coming soon.
Koh Samui is just one part of an outstanding tropical archipelago. Anyone wishing to make the most of the location should certainly consider yachting. The gulf of Siam opens up to you, with Samui’s little sister, Koh Phangan, diving favourite Koh Tao, and Angthong National Marine Park all within reach. Sailing schools also operate on the island so this is a good place to start.
