The geography of Thailand is such that she has long stretches of coastline in the South, from the Gulf of Thailand right down to Malaysia, and in the East her coastline joins with that of Cambodia. The people living along these coastlines are mainly fishermen. Before motor boats were introduced, these people used sailing boats. Such vessels are still in use today on account of the economical aspect of saving fuel. These fishermen could be said to be experts at sailing, their goal is to catch fish and return with it to shore. Speed has never been a major consideration in their boats nor did they think of sailing as a sport.

Some navy men sailed for sport in their spare time. At the sixteenth Olympic Games held in Melbourne, Australia, in 1952, yachting events were introduced for the first time. On that occasion Thailand was represented in the star class event. Thailand has entered a yachting team ever since.

During the past few years considerable improvements have been made at the sea-side resorts along the east coast. These resorts cater for casual holiday-makers as well as permanent residents. Yachting enthusiasts have thus increased in numbers. There are now quite a number of yachting clubs and it can be expected that yachting will become more popular than ever.
