Level rating, level racing – in other words, One Design. Sail in Asia are offering seven identical Platus, fitted with identical suits of sails, for charter at Phuket King’s Cup (1-8 December 2018) at USD2,150 each. With five crew that works out at USD86 per person per racing day. Roll up roll up for a quick and simple (and inexpensive) way to get yourself on the start line of Asia’s no 1 regatta.

The Phuket King’s Cup is the Big One in Asia. Close to 100 boats, from IRC 0 to Cruising Multihulls. Blue water and sunshine. Shorts and t-shirts. Where would you rather be? On the Andaman Sea or the Solent? In December. C’mon that’s a no-brainer. This is an opportunity to enjoy some hot racing and equally hot parties at a thoroughly reasonable rate (charter price does not include regatta entry – for that, see www.kingscup.com)

To reserve a boat or ask for more details, contact Doug Smith dougsmiththailand@hotmail.com
