 Note from Captain Tim:

Capt. Tim Ko Samui Regatta 2012





Friends and Fellow Sailors: This is an awesome, amazing, fantastic sailing event. The Samui Regatta is well noted for it's superbly organized on-the-water racing management and highlighted by possibly the best on shore racing festivities anywhere in the world! 

When you combine the 210 mile x 2 Milebuilder/Delivery voyage with the racing event itself, you will be getting an exceptional, well rounded sailing experience that will really teach you a LOT about the world of yachting.  Honing your sailing skills while racing is a sure way to gain valuable sailing experience. The delivery miles will give participants a first hand look at live-aboard cruising.

I hope you will join us. Please contact me directly if you have any additional questions.

See you on the start line,

5/10 Day Course Option

SQ banner 14

While most students complete the IYT Crew/Skipper course course in one 10 day session, it is possible to split up our full 10 day course into two 5 day sessions. You can start with the first 5 days (IYT International Crew) and then fit in the second 5 days (IYT International Bareboat Skipper) as your schedule allows. You can do this during any of our scheduled 10 day course dates. You will save 4,000THB when you pay for the full 10 day course at one time, then schedule your dates as it fits your schedule.

Of course, it is also ok if you join the IYT Crew course only (first 5 days of any scheduled 10 day course) or the IYT Bareboat Skipper course, qualified sailors only (last 5 days of any scheduled 10 day course).
