Canada and the the UK appeared as winners of the Modern Classic (Jim Ellis) and the
the Classic Classes (Peter Wood), respectively.

At the splendid Awards and Closing Ceremony of the just-finished 26th edition of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta, 2013, His Majesty’s Personal Representative, . M.L.Admiral Usni Pramoj, rewarded the winners of the senior 14 classes, the Phuket Dinghy Series and the Wind-surfing Classes.

A feature of the final party, held at the Regatta’s “home” for the past few years. was the appearance of the award-winning Scottish singer song-writer and his band.. Paul is also the Artist Ambassador to “World Vision”, UK, the world’s largest charity dedicated to the advancement of children.

So, the sail;ors return to their four corners of the globe from whence thay came and the
King’s Cup Race Committee already started to look towards 2014, for the 28th edition of the great event.
