Mont Clair is to sponsor the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta for a sixth consecutive year following the popularity of its wines during previous race years. Mont Clair South African Wine products will be available for the enjoyment of all guests, as sailors, spectators, VIP attendees, media guests and sponsors relax and party to live entertainment amidst an expected crowd of over 1,500 people.
Mont Clair has been a dedicated supporter of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta since 2008, and uses this unique platform to grow the reputation and awareness of its imported South African wines in Phuket and internationally.
Daniel Schwalb, Commercial Director of Siam Winery said, “The Phuket King’s Cup Regatta is one of our most significant sponsorship programmes of the year as it attracts such wide attention across the region. In addition to being recognised as one of the world’s premier sailing cups, the revelry and beachside fun make it a hit with its lively night-time crowds. We are pleased to be able to provide top quality Mont Clair wines for our guests, and we look forward to this year’s Regatta being the most successful in the competition’s history.”
As a principal fixture on the Asian Yachting Circuit, the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta under Royal Patronage annually features upwards of 100 boats, ranging from high tech to live-aboard ocean cruisers, multihulls and classics. International-standard race management is combined with lively beach parties to create this world-renowned yacht racing exhibition.
Kevin Whitcraft, President of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta Organizing Committee said, “Mont Clair has been an excellent sponsor of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta for a number of years. Mont Clair has become synonymous with the beachside parties and fun happenings that feature as part of the Regatta’s entertainment offering; we are delighted to have them involved as our sponsor again for 2013.”
