SailQuest Youth Sailing Program
Transportation, Meals & Accommodation
The SailQuest Youth Sailing Program is an inclusive course where all logistical details and services are included in the course cost. All participants will need to do is to schedule and book course dates and air travel or arrange another group meeting point within Thailand and SailQuest will take it from there. See details below.
Transportation to & from the SailQuest Sailing School base
Once you have confirmed your course dates and booked flights to Thailand, or arranged another pick up point for your group anywhere within a 3 hour drive from our location, provide details and the SailQuest V.I.P. mini-van service will be standing by to deliver your group to our world-class Ocean Marina base just minutes south of Thailand's largest tourist destination in Pattaya, Thailand.
It is preferred to plan arrival times at the pick-up point between 10:00am and 4:00pm on the day before the first class day. On arrival students attend an orientation briefing, get set up in the onshore accommodation and attend the "Welcome Aboard Dinner Party".
Return SailQuest V.I.P. mini-van service is also included in the course cost, scheduled for the morning following the last class day.
Included Meals, Food & Beverages
From the first "Welcome Aboard Dinner Party" on the evening before the first class day to breakfast on the morning following the last class day, all meals and beverages, both ashore and on board the training yachts, are included in the course cost.
While onshore in Ocean Marina, the well-managed and conveniently located "Lake House Restaurant" provides a set menu for breakfast and lunch including Thai and Western food options. Evening meals hosted by the "Lake House Restaurant" are Thai-Style buffet dinner party events attended by students, instructors and sailing school staff and also include sailing lessons, course review and sailing song fun. The "Lake House Restaurant" also provides free internet WiFi service.
All meals are also included aboard the training yachts during the live-aboard portions of the course. Breakfasts include cereals, rice soup, fresh fruit and juice. Lunches are ramen soup, fresh fruit and snacks. Wholesome and hearty dinners are prepared aboard including pasta dishes and Thai curries.
On the last night of the live-aboard voyage students, instructors and sailing school staff go ashore to a beachfront Thai seafood restaurant. This unforgettable dining experience is always a highlight of the sailing program!
An unlimited amount of bottled drinking water is provided in the accommodation and aboard the training yachts.
Students may also bring along any additional food, snacks or beverages. Any special dietary requirements should be reported to SailQuest when booking your course dates.
From the evening before the first class day to the morning following the last class day accommodation is included in the course cost.
SailQuest Bungalow/Campsite: SailQuest Sailing School manages a 2 bed room bungalow and campsite on the Ocean Marina property, fully equipped with air-con, refrigerator, toilet facilities, and all necessary supplies. Powered and fan-cooled 2-4 person camping tents are set up on the lakeside just outside the bungalow for larger groups. This is ideal accommodation for youth groups, convenient to the restaurant, mini-mart, SailQuest class room and training yacht, all located on the Ocean Marina property.

SailQuest Guesthouse & Student Lounge: Just across the road from the Ocean Marina property, SailQuest Sailing School also operates a 4 bedroom guesthouse facility. This facility sleeps up to 16 people in both fan and air-con rooms. The guesthouse includes a student lounge and private bar, WiFi and entertainment center. This option can be reserved for older groups, or if the bungalow/campsite is not your preferred option.

Luxury Accommodation Options
In some cases, groups may prefer to arrange their own accommodation for the evenings we will be based in the marina. There are many upgraded accommodation options located within easy walking distance of the SailQuest Sailing School/Ocean Marina location. In this case, SailQuest will reduce the course cost by 2,000THB for the 5 day course or 4,000THB for the 10 day course per person when you provide your own accommodation.
