- Pattaya Windsurfing Cup blows into town

June 26, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News highlights Watersports fanatics who are staying in Pattaya hotels towards the end of July will get the opportunity to zip up their wetsuits, pick up their boards and head down to the Pattaya Windsurfing Cup.

Organised by the Windsurfing Association of Thailand and the Pattaya City Club, the competition is part of the country's 2010 Windsurfing Championship.

The first leg of the event is due to kick off this Friday (June 25th) and runs until Sunday night, but people who are staying in Thailand hotels near the end of next month should arrive in time to check out the second stage of the tournament.

It is due to get underway on July 23rd, with some of the best windsurfers in the region and from across the country all facing off to race and perform the best tricks and wow the watching crowds at Jomtien Beach.

Three days of long and tough competition await the entrants, with events typically kicking off at around 13:00 local time and continuing until the sun goes down.

Jomtien Beach has become something of a haven for watersports aficionados in recent years, with jet-skiing and banana boating also proving popular.

It is no more than a ten-minute drive away from the centre of Pattaya.
