Platu Club News

updated January 2021

Hi to all Platu crew.

We have weekend racing once a month. See calendar in the OMYC section of this site. The cost per crew member on a Platu is 1700 baht which covers the OMYC entry fee, launching fees, contribution towards running costs, sails and charter fees.

Doug Smith is the co-ordinator and sends out regular emails for you to confirm attendance or not. If you are not receiving these emails contact Doug to put you on his list.

email [email protected] also on whatsapp. cell 084 908 3043

Doug takes into account your level of experience and designs each boat’s 5 man crew accordingly. The boats are super safe and will always have competent experienced skippers on board.

Racing is competitive but friendly and the intention is to give everyone more experience on the water and have fun while doing so.

Platu Championship 2021

After the total success of the Platu Cup last weekend we have decided to keep the same format for the four Championship events of 2021. Instead of high entry fees to provide expensive trophies and free food and drink we will reduce our costs and reduce Championship regatta entry fees to zero. The OMYC entry fee is 400 baht per person. The racing itself will not be diminished in any way. Last weekend at the Platu cup we had eleven, 30 minute races over the two days ( see report and results in the Championship/Platu cup 2020 section of this site). This provided close, exciting racing enjoyed by all. To decide the Platu Champion 2021 we will designate four weekends events and take a crew’s best three results to count.
