Thailand regatta raises money for new school

More than 180 yachtsmen competing in Sunsail’s Phang Nga Bay Regatta in Thailand have raised more than £9,000 to help build a new school on Phi Phi Don one of the worst hit locations in December’s tsunami.

The death toll has risen beyond 280,000 in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand and elsewhere since the earthquake struck on Boxing Day.

Yachting Monthly staffers took the first charter out of Thailand since the tsunami struck. Read their report in the April issue.
