DART 18 World Championships

Royal Varuna Yacht Club, Pattaya, Thailand. The glorious waters of the Gulf of Thailand are the exciting location for the eagerly awaited Dart 18 World Championship which commences on Saturday. The containers delivering boats from Europe are now on site and competitors from 13 Nations have arrived at the Royal Varuna YC to experience the legendary Thai hospitality and great facilities on offer. With the prevailing South West monsoon wind now firmly established, some great sailing conditions are expected for the week ahead.

What of the competition? Let us have a look at the teams expected to feature.

GBR Dan Norman/Alisha Monkman. Former 3 times World Champion from the Isle of Sheppey YC, must be serious contenders and the word is they want to make it 4. Expertly crewed and can adapt to any conditions. As Dan would say “Bring it on!”.
 FRA Thierry/Christine Wibeaux. World Champions back in 2004 probably represent the best French challenge. Hugely experienced and great championship performers.
GBR Dave/Louise Roberts representing Stokes bay SC. Very well drilled duo, World Champions as recently as 2017. The sea conditions should suit them as it is similar to the Solent chop. Will be in the mix.
