The Annual Phuket King’s Cup Regatta under the Royal Patronage of His Majesty the King of Thailand
Since its inception in 1987, the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta has grown to become Asia’s premier yacht racing event. Traditionally held in early December, the Regatta was conceived to honour His Majesty the King of Thailand’s 60th birthday. Now 14 years on the event has grown from strength to strength, in both size and reputation, boasting the largest contingent of keel boats, multi-hulls and traditional craft.
Venue is Phuket Only This year , the entire regatta will take place in and around Kata Beach. From the feedback received after last year’s event, we found that the overnight stop in Phi Phi was unpopular and that the Krabi start was difficult for participants to organise.
See the Phuket Kings Cup Regatta with the sailing, the action, the parties, the protests and the dramas including the sinking of Monsoon Blue. Shot by award-winning director of photography Hans van Gyen and presented by Michael Beatty.
