Founded in January 2015, with a vision of an establishment where everyone can learn to sail from 8 – 80 years, the club is definitely a great place to get out in the water and try yourself at some sailing under the trained supervision of the great staff here. Afterwards you can then enjoy laying back in the very chilled club enjoying a chat and maybe a drink with fellow members by the beach under the cool shade.
The Sailing Club Hua Hin really has a genuine family oriented club feeling for anyone to learn sailing no matter the age, run by Richard Vine who has lived in Hua Hin for over 10 years. The club does not stop at being the only place in Hua Hin to learn to sail, it also is a great place for families to just grab a bite to eat or have a party by the beach under the shade. The Sailing Club has a fully stocked bar and restaurant with some great cocktails and delicious food. The restaurant run by Richards Wife Nam, provides delicious Thai and International food on a beautiful deck at reasonable prices.
During the 70’s, Richard taught sailing for three years at Club Med where he discovered the pleasure of sailing in warm water. As his retirement approached he purchased a Laser for himself and an Optimist for his son and ever since they have been a regular sight off Cha Am beach. It was at the Hua Hin Regatta in 2013, when he saw 130 kids from Bangkok, Pattaya and Sattahip all competing in their Optimists, that he decided that Hua Hin needed a sailing club. If there were 130 kids from the other side of the Gulf who enjoyed sailing then there must be some in Hua Hin. The Sailing Club Hua Hin is the realisation of a lifetime’s dream for Richard and as First Member he will keep an experienced eye on the running of the club.
The clubs objective is to be a centre of excellence helping kids to develop all the personal skills necessary for handling a boat. For those who show exceptional talent they can train them onto the Thai National squad which recently won the World Optimist Team Championship in Buenos Aires. As always, Child safety is very important so they use state of the art Gul buoyancy aids and have full personal liability insurance.
If you or your child wants to learn to Sail in Hua Hin or is just interested in boats and is looking for friends with similar interests and may find a new passion, the The Sailing Club Hua Hin is for you!
