Congratulations to Rob Walsh on adding a 3rd major title in 2015.
Rob sent us the results a few days ago but was too modest to write a report so we have waited until word comes through from other parts of the world.
We haven’t had to wait long with an excellent report on page 32 of the fantastic Seattle IOM newsletter.
This was Thailand’s fourth King Regatta that is typically held in mid-December, their coolest time of year. It was held to honor His Majesty the King’s 88th birthday and 48 years (or 4 cycles) of his receiving a Gold Medal sailing his OK Dinghy in the 1967 SEAP Games. The IOM class has always been included in the King Regatta; while the Optimist class was added on the 3rd running for kids and the OK Dinghy was added this year. This regatta had a strong IOM international presence for the first time that was initiated byIOM enthusiast Admiral Yuttana “Oh” Phagpolngam. Oh had a huge supporting cast of around 160 to ensure our vacation was a great experience. It was exceptional and well beyond my expectations.
