News and Events in Thailand
Phuket Raceweek

Phuket Raceweek will be held from 18 to 22 July, it is the lead-off race in the annual Asian Yachting Grand Prix Championship fixtures that attracts the region’s top sailors to compete at several popular Asian regattas. Faced with the inevitability of a venue change after eight successful years, Phuket Raceweek organisers, Image Asia Events, announced the multi-year deals with new Title Sponsor, Cape Panwa Hotel and Host Venue Sponsors, Cape Panwa Hotel and Kantary Bay Hotel.

Sailors have high expectations and expect a closely contested event. One reason is that the race course faces the seasonal southwest monsoon, which will carry considerable clout by the time it blows across the Andaman Seas and reaches Phuket.

At least 30 race yachts will enter the regatta, but late entries are still expected before the starting pistol breaks the morning calm sea.    

Phuket leads the way as the signature destination for the Asian Yacht circuit championship in 2012.

It was voted 'Best Asian Maritime Capital' in the annual Asian Boating Awards this year and hosts at least four annual regattas.

Sailors who don’t have a yacht can join a participating yacht as crew, or they can charter their own yacht through one of the charter companies operating in Phuket.

Based on last year’s turnout the organisers are expecting around 400 participants and spectators, mainly families of crew take the opportunity to turn a race into a family-style vacation.
