SeaCart College & Regatta Venues
Welcome to paradise – Whilst at CMI recently Calle also visited Pattaya on the western side of the Gulf of Thailand to inspect venues for SeaCart College and future regattas. The Royal Varuna Yacht Club, one of Asia’s most active yacht clubs is an idyllic venue. The club has a very active racing program for dinghies and off-the-beach catamarans.
Calle’s competitive nature got the better of him and he joined the locals racing a Laser followed by jumping on a Formula 18 for a test session during their weekend club races. As well as offering warm torqouise water and steady breezes, the club features a dining terrace and swimming pool with spectacular views overlooking the club’s own beach and race area. Accommodation is available onsite or at nearby exclusive hotel complexes.

The nearby Ocean Marina Yacht Club is a new 5-star hotel and marina complex. With a large protected marina, hardstand and launching facilities it would provide a suitable base for a large SeaCart 26 racing fleet. The hotel has three charter cruising catamarans that would be perfect Race Committee, VIP and spectator vessels.
Ocean Marina has a chandlery, launching ramp, travel lift, marina and hard stand for 300 boats.
