The World Record Sailing Yacht Tournament. or WRSYT for short.
was staged at Krabi Boat Lagoon and off of Krabi’s Long Beach from March 1-3.
SEAT-listed Apex Development Public Company was the main sponsor of the event supported by the Krabi provincial government.
It was actually Doug Smith’s first time as the Principal Race Officer, but he did a good job as PRO.
He had hoped to get in two races on the first day, but light wind forced him to cancel that plan and settle for a race a day.
Those mooring at Krabi Boat Lagoon had to get back to the marina about noon or later in the after-noon (around 5pm).
Ma Du Zi tried to push its luck on Saturday afternoon and got stuck in mud, having to wait for the tide to rise before floating back into Krabi Boat Lagoon.
The event organizers Asian Multi Sports & Entertainment Co , Ltd.
have a long history of organizing jetski events but don’t have much experience with sailing so they called in Mike Downard from Phuket’s SailinAsia to be the Race Director at the last minute and he did a superb job of organization as well as performing a fine imitation of Roger Daltry while helming his SailinAsia craft
