30 March 2010 - Lewmar has appointed Sail in Siam as its distributor in Thailand. Based in the Jomtien Yacht Club, near Pattaya on Thailand's East Coast, the company first established itself in 2006 as a multihull specialist and has since diversified to become a fully accredited Sailing School (IYT) and more recently a distributor of quality products to boat yards and chandlers throughout Thailand.

Sail in Siam was selected and appointed by Lewmar's new Asian Area Manager Alan Carwardine. Alan is based in Phuket, Thailand and is responsible for supporting Lewmar's existing agents as well as building new business in the region. He joined Lewmar from All Yacht Spars, Australia at the end of 2009.

Sail In Siam's general manager, Bob Garner, has lived in Asia for the last eighteen years. He previously spent eight years cruising and exploring the south pacific by sailing boat. Bob explains his intentions; " Sail In Siam is a highly "customer focused" business that only wishes to represent the best quality marine products with good back up service to chandleries and to boat builders across Indochina. I see Lewmar's quality product range being exactly the type of products that will be ideal for this market."

Sail in Siam is actively involved in the sailing scene in the Kingdom of Thailand, both as participant and sponsor. Bob and his team support junior sailing development through the growing Optimist fleet as well as the "Corsair Cup," an annual multihull event incorporated within the "Top Of the Gulf Regatta".

In additional to Lewmar, Sail in Siam provides national representation for Corsair Marine (High Performance Trimarans), Colligo Marine (USA - furling Systems) and Lightwave Yachts (Australian built high end cruising catamaran's).
