Thai Sailors Take Part In Para World Sailing Championship In The US

Thailand sends sailors to take part in the Para World Sailing Championships with Paisal Pa-Teh and Suraphong Chitkhong for the first time. They both are from Pattaya and would head to Sheboygan in the USA to compete in pre-event sailing in addition to World Championships starting from 18th to 22nd September.

The founder of Disabled sailing Thailand, Peter Jacobs said it is indeed a great moment for sailing in his country. This is the first time that Thailand has decided to send sailors to Para World Sailing Championships.

The Disabled Sailing Thailand is proud that they are doing it this year too. The founder said the Thai sailors have undergone training with the best of coaches at Royal Varuna Yacht Club. It is an excellent chance for Thai sailors as they would learn more and the experience of the World Championships is something that cannot be forgotten.

In the year 2015, the committee of the International Paralympics chose to drop sailing from Paralympics 2020. As a result the decision made the foundation of Disabled sailing Thailand and the objective here is to ensure that the sports are readily accessible for those with disabilities. Eventually this objective will help in supporting the reintroduction of sailing to the Paralympics.

The team has been closely working with World Sailing and they have offered constant support to help the management send sailors to the World Championships from Thailand. There are around 125 sailors taking part from 36 different countries and the founder hopes that Thai team will motivate the ones who are determined to try sailing as their career in the future. It is good to see so many disabled sailors ready to take part in the competition and perform their best despite of their physical disabilities. It would be interesting to watch the Para World Sailing Championship to know the winner.
