Friends and Fellow Sailors: Did you know?: the months of August & September are typically a great time of year for sailing here in the Gulf of Thailand with steady winds coming in from the south west… our south west monsoon season. Reliable wind speeds of 10 – 20 knots and a chance for occasional rain squalls provide students with a chance to get hands-on experience in sailing in strong winds and learning how to keep a yacht under control thru a range of sailing conditions.
This is indeed valuable experience for new sailors! Looking forward to sailing with you soon!
How are you going with your sailing plans? Now is the perfect time to take the next steps in making your sailing dreams come true. Course dates are available now... book your dates today!
