Sponsored by the Cape Panwa Hotel, this international regatta is scheduled to take place in and around Phuket’s south coast at Cape Panwa. This year’s Race Week will feature at least seven racing classes, including IRC Racing I, IRC Racing II, IRC Cruising, Charter/Bareboat, Firefly 850, Multihull Racing, and Corsairs. The races span four days and five nights, and include beachside regatta parties open only to participants. The Beachside Regatta Bar will be set around the beachside gardens of the hotel to offer free-flow beer, wine and spirits. Fees for boat entry are B15,000, and B5,000 for crew tickets.
