Phuket Raceweek 2012 announces dates

The organisers of Phuket Raceweek 2012 have confirmed that this year's event will go ahead, specifically from July 18-22. However, a ‘home venue’ has yet to be confirmed for the annual yachting event. Organisers recently announced that, ‘After eight excellent years at Evason Phuket, the regatta must move. Ownership changes, plans to sell the property and so on left Phuket Raceweek organizers looking for a new host venue. With venue negotiations drawing to a close, an announcement can be expected soon.’

‘In the meantime, the regatta is definitely on. The racing area will be the same as for the past eight years - Chalong Bay and surrounding islands. Excellent breezes are expected…,’ said the release.

Returning sponsors at this year’s Phuket Raceweek include Mount Gay Rum. ‘So don’t hesitate to make plans. As soon as the regatta venue is confirmed, accommodation options will be announced. The regatta is run during low season Phuket, so plenty of rooms are available.’

Coming into its ninth year, Phuket Raceweek comprises four days of world-class yacht racing and five nights of beachside parties – all captured for international TV broadcast to 140 million households [who may – or may not – be watching. Ed]

Phuket Raceweek, run over six or seven classes, including cruising, bareboat and charter yachts, has gained a reputation for its competitive racing for the serious boats and fun courses around the islands for the less serious racers.

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

The Phuket Gazette, PGTV and The Nation are proud sponsors of Phuket Raceweek.
