A small group of sailors, based at The Ocean Marina Yacht Club near Pattaya, got together at the end of last month to organize a day out for the children of the St. Camillus Foundation of Thailand.

Michael Davis and his fellow captains took all the children on a trip along the coast from Ocean Marina for a wonderful day of messing about in boats. All week the weather was very changeable with heavy shower each day but on this day there was only a very slight sprinkling of rain on the way to the anchorage, with sunshine to follow for the rest of the afternoon.

The children enjoyed paddling around in small dinghies, rides on a jet ski, sailing and jumping from the top deck of the motor yacht.

All too soon it was off back to the marina for ice cream and a thank you to Michael Davis and his fellow captains for such a wonderful day out.

No plank to walk but jumping off the boat proved great fun.
