Recognised throughout the eastern hemisphere as the premier sailing event of its kind, the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta will host a week of incredibly close racing in the beautiful Andaman Seas off the cost of Southern Thailand from 1 – 6 December, 2013. The 27th Phuket King’s Cup Regatta sees a new Bareboat Charter division intended to address any disparities between professional and amateur teams in the class, making for a very open racing division this year. Additionally, the event will attract over 100 vessels comprising full-scale racers, International Grand Prix racing boats, racing catamarans and a vast fleet of diverse sailing, cruising and racing craft, all competing for Asia’s most coveted prize in competitive sailing.

The Opening Ceremony will be held at Kata Beach Resort & Spa (Phuket) on 1 December 2013, with the first day’s racing set to cast off the following morning. Racing between keelboats and multihulls is hosted over five days (2 – 6 December 2013) whilst racing in the Dinghy class will be held from 1 to 4 December. Windsurf will be also held for the second year between 5-6 December. The sail pass to celebrate His Majesty the King's birthday will be on 5 December. The Royal Awards Ceremony is to be held on 6 December 2013. The five days of highly charged racing are complemented by six fantastic beachside parties hosted by some of Phuket’s most recognisable names in hospitality including host venue Kata Beach Resort & Spa, with close to 2,000 guests attending nightly.
