From Long distance sailing across the gulf to the 9th Hua Hin Regatta

Forty years ago, His Majesty The King Bhumibol Adulyadej an accomplish yatchman who was a boat designer, builder and racer sailed the OK Class dinghy, "Vega 1, number Th 18" he build across Gulf of Thailand from Klaikungwon Palace, Hua Hin, Prachuab Khiri Khan to Toeyngam Harbour in Marine headquarters, Sattahip, Chonburi.The journey covered 60 nautical miles and took almost 17 hours.

The occurrence was marked notable considering the the fact that His Majesty
The King solely built and sailed the sailboat across the sea by his own hands.

His Majesty The King set the Marine flag on the historical stone pillar. Owing to that, the Royal Yatch Association of Thailand under the royal patronage of His Majesty the king founded in 1964, hosted the sailing across Thai Gulf competition to commemorate His Majesty’s great role as the first pioneer in long distance sailing in Thailand.

Above all, His Majesty the King was also generously gave Royal Vega Rudder to the champion of the long distance sailing competition. This trophy would be handed to the winners of each year and their names would be inscribed on it.

This year, the 9th Hua Hin Regatta took place from the 1st to the 3rd of August 2008 on the beach near Sofitel Centara Grand Resort and Villa, Hua Hin
