Royal Varuna Yacht Club in Pattaya held a fun team racing event during the weekend Oct. 1-2 for young talented club members to learn and improve their spirit of team racing.  About 40 young sailors took part in both Optimist and Laser 4.7 classes.

The event was organized by Jordan Rumsby, Sailing Director and RVYC coach with support from parents.  Special thanks also go to Albert Nazarov, Tom Vernon, David Gavin, and Wikki Bhanubandh who were positioned on and off shore to make sure everything went smoothly.

Each sailor was required to employ their own tactics and strategies to ensure their team secured good positions and points, all without the aid of coaching support.

The next event at Varuna will be the 2016 JVK Eastern Seaboard Regatta from 22 – 24 October.  It is open to any Optimist sailor of any nationality.  Contact Jordan Rumbsy at [email protected] for entry enquiry or visit www.varuna.org.

Optimist class winners - Jade Gavin, ML Weka Bhanubandh and Krit Romanyk.
