Oceanlake Marine has an unquestionable passion for multihull racing. Put simply, it’s in the company’s DNA as we are all very active and experienced international sailors. We believe that it’s better to show our boats in the environment for which they’re designed (on the race course) than in a showroom. This philosophy means we’re often travelling to regattas around the world, so it’s likely that you’ll be able to meet us for a chat, a test sail, some coaching or on the start line!
SeaCart College Thailand
The SeaCart 26 OD class will take off in a big way during 2011 with the first boats being delivered to owners around the world. For owners taking delivery during the latter stages of 2011, a week-long SeaCart College will be held in Thailand. It presents a fantastic opportunity for you to get your team up to speed quickly with coaching and tuning advice from the Oceanlake Marine team and other multihull experts. Take advantage of this great opportunity and let us help you kick start your SeaCart!
With the Northern Hemisphere in the midst of winter it will be an especially great way for teams from Europe and North America to escape the cold and sail in tropical waters. After a few days of coaching and tuning a regatta will be held. The proposed venue is the Ocean Marina Yacht Club, a luxury hotel and marina complex in Pattaya, perfect for sailors and their families, alike.
It will be a great experience for everyone – this is what the SeaCart 26 class is meant to be about! After the regatta you may decide to leave the boat in Thailand for more regattas or ship it home in advance of your local racing season. We hope to negotiate a discount shipping for everyone that takes part as an added bonus.
World Championships on the Horizon
Oceanlake Marine’s mission is to satisfy ISAF requirements for the SeaCart 26 to become a Recognised Class as early as possible. November 2012 is the target date to achieve this. Preliminary planning has begun to conduct the first official SeaCart 26 World Championships in Thailand in early 2013.
To ensure the best event possible Oceanlake Marine will attempt to facilitate logistical assistance on behalf of owners. This may include storage of new boats after delivery and transportation to the regatta venue.
Existing owners from around the world can ship their boats to Thailand for what is envisaged to be the largest World Championship of any multihull class (excluding off-the-beach). Get set for the ultimate racing experience!
If you want to ’try before you buy’ or just want to experience the thrills of a SeaCart 26 then you can book a Test Sail with us. For 95 EUR/person we will give you a super exciting hour of speed sailing at one of the venues which we will attend as part of our scheduled tour.
