OMYCsailing is a volunteer organization established with the objective of encouraging yachting activities out of the Ocean Marina Yacht Club south of Pattaya, Thailand.
The main activity is to organize a yacht race weekend once a month, normally every second weekend of the month. The sailing calendar on this site gives the exact dates of the race weekends for 2012.
For latest information it is advisable to visit our social website or visit OMYCsailing on www.omycsailing.ning.com or visit OMYCsailing on www.facebook.com/omycsailing.
Also OMYCsailing carries out cruising and fun sailing activities on a monthly basis, which is a good start for new comers to the sport.
The fleets include a variety of racing and cruising keel boats, ocean going multihulls, a large fleet of International Platu 25 racing yachts and sport boats amongst others.
Normally yachts are available for charter for the OMYCsailing racing and cruising events.
OMYCsailing is also participating in the organization of the annual Top Of The Gulf Regatta ( www.topofthegulfregatta.com)
We do generally not involve ourselves in dinghy or beach catamaran sailing; such activities are the prime objective of the Royal Varuna Yacht Club in Pattaya.
OMYCsailing is encouraging any person interested in sailing to contact us. We are normally able to find crewing opportunities in our monthly events.
