The 37-strong fleet at the 10th Anniversary Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek enjoyed some fast and furious racing on the first day race yesterday off Panwa Cape on Phuket’s southeast coast. Winds exceeding 15 knots, combined with 2-3 metre swells, made for perfect Phuket sailing conditions on Day One of the award-winning regatta.
Classic and IRC Cruising classes raced a single, long ’round-the-islands’ course, enjoying the strong breeze and scenery in equal measure, while the two IRC Racing classes and two multihull classes completed two races to get their series underway.
Four days of world-class yacht racing in Phuket, Thailand, combined with four nights of magical, beachside parties at the five-star Cape Panwa Hotel, the 10th Anniversary Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek takes place 17-21 July, 2013.
Voted ‘Best Asian Regatta’ in 2011, Phuket Raceweek remains the sailors’ favourite, with superb racing for all classes and a lavish onshore social scene.
Phuket Raceweek features special classes for Charter Boats, and the more traditional Racing, IRC, Multihull & Sports Boat classes.
