Sailing Weather Conditions

  • The SailQuest location on the eastern seaboard of the Gulf of Thailand averages over 300 decent sailing days per year giving SailQuest students the best chance of having a lively Hands-On experience. Tropical temperatures and blue skies prevail year round.

  • We enjoy consistent fair weather with winds from the north during the north east monsoons, from November thru March.

  • During the south west monsoons, April thru October, winds tend to be strong and steady from the south, occasionally bringing along tropical rain squalls which are always welcomed by students and usually considered good training.

  • Whatever the season, from our top of the Gulf of Thailand location, surrounded on 3 sides by coastline, the seas around our training area are always relatively flat. It is not unusual to sail in a perfect 15 knot breeze and experience only a half meter swell. This allows SailQuest students to concentrate on the sailing lessons and not worry about huge sea conditions.
