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.

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
