The 2013 Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek, now in its 10th edition, will attract the region’s top sailors, 17 to 21 July, while Cape Panwa Hotel confirmed it will continue its event sponsorship through 2015.


“We are very proud to continue our involvement with Phuket Raceweek and to extend our sponsorship of the regatta through to 2015. The synergies of an award-winning yachting event and the Cape Panwa Hotel with its location, luxury accommodation and first class facilities, are clear,” said project development manager, Kasemkij Hotels, Tirawan Pangsrivongse.

Four days of yacht racing in Phuket are combined with four nights of beachside parties to make what the hotel calls an award-winning formula for Phuket Raceweek.

It was voted ‘Best Asian Regatta of the Year’ at the 2011 Asia Boating Awards. The event attracts sailors from Australia, Europe and the US in addition to teams from ASEAN and Hong Kong.

The 2013 Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek is also considered a curtain raiser for the 2013/14 Asian Yachting Grand Prix Championship.

Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek, run over six or seven classes including racing, multihull, cruising and bareboat charter, has gained a reputation for its competitive racing for the serious boats and fun courses around the islands for the less serious racers. It is also the first event of the prestigious 2013/2014 Asian Yachting Grand Prix Championship.

Phuket Raceweek enjoys the support of Tourism Authority of Thailand, Sports Authority of Thailand, Yacht Racing Association of Thailand and Ao Chalong Yacht Club.
