King Power Raceboard World Championships 2006
Pattaya, Thailand

Patrik POLLAK (SVK) took a significant lead going into the last day of the King Power Raceboard World Championships in Pattaya, Thailand and a first place in race 9 was enough to secure the championship and the World title. Napalai TANSAI (THA) finished as first woman.

However, behind POLLAK, the battle was really on between Riccardo GIORDANO (ITA) and Sam WONG (HKG) for second place. There was nothing between them in the final day's two races - it was close right to the finish of both races. GIORDANO emerged the victor and also first master in this year's championship.

Navin SINGSART (THA) finished the regatta strongly with two fifth places. He was second in the lightweight division and first youth in the championship.

TANSAI finished first woman despite not being able to race on the final day, as both she and Arun HOMRARUEN (THA) were on their way to compete for Thailand in the Asian Games.

The prizegiving Dinner took place at Northpoint, courtesy of Raimon Land Co. Guest of honour was Khun Piriyapandh Thaisuriyo representing King Power Group of Companies, the title sponsor of this year's championship.
