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,

SailQuest Update - Response to Corona Virus/COVID-19

As I am sure you are aware, the Corona Virus/COVID-19 is creating international travel issues. At this time, however, it is business as usual at SailQuest Sailing School and all scheduled course dates and sailing events are still running as scheduled. It is a great time of year for sailing here in the Gulf of Thailand!

To keep updated on the situation in Thailand and restrictions regarding incoming visitors,  see the Thailand Department of Disease Control website. Travelers should also be aware of any warnings or restrictions that may be posted in the country you will return to following your SailQuest dates.

This situation will certainly effect some who have already booked course or event dates or those who may be thinking of doing so. The SailQuest refund and re-schedule policy remains the same as always. If for any reason you need to cancel  your booking, we will issue a full refund of your booking deposit or full payment, minus any bank transfer fees. Or we can hold your payment and you can re-schedule to more convenient dates as your schedule allows.

We are also implementing a daily temperature check policy for instructors and students and encouraging continued good hygiene practices for all. Anyone who is not feeling well or showing symptoms… please stay home!

These are tough times for travelers and business owners alike, but we are all trying to make the best of it.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Good health and Happy Sailing!

Capt. Tim & the SailQuest team
