Hua Hin Regatta 2010Date: 3 - 8 August 2010
Venue: Hua Hin
At the end of each July, sailors gather for the annual Hua Hin Regatta that will test their skills over three days of competition. The coveted trophies are the Royal Vega Rudder trophy of His Majesty the King, Super Mod National Championship trophy from HM the King, OK Dinghy National Championship trophy from HM the Queen, and Princess Cup for Optimist Championship of the late HRH Princess Galyani Vadhana.
Hua Hin is considered the traditional home of the Thailand sailing community, due to HM the King’s keen interest in the sport. A Southeast Asia Games winner in the sailing category, HM the King built his own racing dinghy and helped to establish the Super Mod class; he is also an enthusiastic patron of sailing, which has resulted in this annual regatta being held in his honor off the coast of Hua Hin in sight of the palace
