This year’s Regatta will also be organised as part of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s seventh-cycle birthday celebrations.

This twelfth Hua Hin Regatta, organised by the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand in conjunction with the Royal Thai Navy, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the District Authority of Cha-am and the Provincial Authority of Petchburi, will see sailors competing for several coveted Royal Trophies, including The King’s Cup for the Royal Vega Rudder Classes; The King’s Cup for the Super Mod National Championship; The Princess’ Cup from the late HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana for the Optimist Championship; and The Queen’s Cup for the OK Dinghy National Championship – a boat in which His Majesty the King sailed single-handedly across the Gulf of Thailand – and a class in which His Majesty the King was a gold-medal winner at the 1967 regional South-east Asian Games.

Date: 20 - 28 August 2011
