Ray Roberts to Open Sailing
Schools in Thailand - Exclusive Video Interview
[FHD video and podcast
below] Ray Roberts, a successful Australian
entrepreneur with a passion for sailing, missed a couple of recent Top of the Gulf Regattas
in Pattaya, Thailand, but returned this year stronger than ever
with his very fast TP52 yacht - Team Hollywood.
In this exclusive
interview, filmed on 4 May 2019 at the Ocean Marina Yacht Club in
Jomtien, Ray tells us what makes the Top of the Gulf Regatta so
special, why he decided to compete in this year's event, and which
race he is scheduled to take place in next.
We ask what challenges he faces in finding the
right crew and motivating them, as well as how he would like to
see regattas in the region improve.
We also discuss his TP52 and
what makes it so special, as well as what plans he has for his two
other TP52s, and how he sees yacht development changing in the
years to come.
Ray tells us why he loves Thailand so much,
and what very exciting plans he has to develop sailing here by
establishing at least one sailing school that will help to teach
youngsters to enjoy an active lifestyle, and to help them
transition from the small dinghies to larger boats. We discuss
these plans and you will learn what type of boats the school will
have and how many, where it will be located, what it will be
called, and much, much more in the video and podcast below.
