On March 5 the Lagoon Saloon, Java Racing Charters, Multihull Solutions and Krabi Sailing School organized the Pulse fleet and staged a race day on Sapam Bay right outside the Boat Lagoon. With sponsorship from Cholamark Boats, Regattas Asia and the Boat Lagoon itself the five teams enjoyed champagne sailing and some very close racing. After a quick briefing at the Lagoon Saloon all teams were given a run down on their Pulse 600’s and headed out. No wind of course so everybody floated around and enjoyed the hospitality of Java Racing Charters for a while before……………….breeze on!
A course was quickly set to make the most use of the 7-10 knots which filled in from the SE. With a short start line and 10 minute upwind legs we completed 4 close races with podium positions being shared amongst the fleet. The mark roundings were exciting and the one design Pulse 600’s proved the perfect boat with families and inexperienced crew getting a taste of close multihull sailboats racing.
Then back to the Lagoon Saloon for some Cholamark Boats supplied beer and the prize giving.
