This year?s event will take place from April 30 to May 4 at the Ocean Marina Yacht Club located south of Jomtien Beach, and will again feature the HM The King?s Platu Coronation Cup and the Optimist Thailand Nationals for single hull dinghies.

Pattaya City Mayor Ittipol Khunpleum said that it is important for the government, community and private sector to join hands in supporting important international events such as this regatta to show the world that Pattaya is operating as normal.

Pattaya is one of Asia’s finest beach resorts, and sporting events like the Top of the Gulf International Regatta enable us to make use of our valuable natural surroundings and showcase the great outdoors lifestyle on offer here. We appreciate Raimon Land?s continued support of this event, Mr Ittipol said.

Raimon Land Director of Marketing, Henri Young, said: ?We remain committed to supporting high-end lifestyle events in Pattaya ? of which this is an excellent example ? and to helping boost tourism during the ongoing political crisis and stagnating world economy.

Raimon Land will return to the 2009 Platu Coronation Cup on the sails of The Lofts Southshore skippered by last year?s winner, Scott Duncanson, who will face an expected fleet of 17 platus from six countries.

The Optimist Thailand Nationals anticipates an entry list of more than 130 dinghies, and among the more than 25 top racing keelboats competing in the international IRC race are Neil Pryde in Hi Fi, Peter Churchouse onboard Moonblue 2, and Olivier Pou skippering Le Berrige III.

Among Raimon Land Pattaya developments is Northpoint, the winner of the Thailand Property Awards 2008 Best Condo Development (Eastern Seaboard). The project?s 54- and 46-storey towers on North Pattaya?s Wongamat Beach were topped off in December 2008 and construction continues on schedule.
