Sailboats used by 11-year olds racing in Hua Hin, Thailand
As I posted a few days ago, I spent a long weekend in Hua Hin,Thailand, a laidback beach resort about three hours south by car from Bangkok. Although Hua Hin’s development is dizzying in the last five years, it still retains a small town charm. While there, I happened upon a sailing event that involved several classes of sailboats, from large craft to the small dinghies you see in these photos.
These boats were sailed single-handed by 11 year olds and one had to be impressed with the capabilities of these children with these very tiny craft on open seas.
