AsiaRooms.com - Catch a ride at the Pattaya Windsurfing Races

May 19, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
AsiaRooms.com can reveal that people who love watching high-action water sports competitions should consider booking Pattaya hotels at the end of June if they are travelling around Thailand.

This is because the first stage of the Thailand Windsurfing Championships will be held at the seaside resort from June 25th to 27th.

Anyone who wants to watch some of the action should head down to Jomtien Beach in the morning to grab a good vantage point, with the racing kicking off at 13:00 each day.

The excitement will last until sunset, giving spectators plenty to enjoy while topping up their tan.

Both men's and women's tournaments take place over the three weekend events held in Pattaya over June, July and into January.

Pattaya is a popular place for those staying in Thailand hotels to learn to windsurf and anyone who is inspired by the competition being played out on the waves may want to try their hand with a board and sail.

There are several water sports centres in the resort that both rent equipment to experienced windsurfers and offer tuition to total beginners.

Last year's event saw windsurfers from all over Asia competing, including athletes from Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, the Pattaya Mail reported.

In 2009, two Thai competitors triumphed in the men's and women's categories, a result which was no doubt appreciated by local spectators.
