Tropical Sailing Holidays: Phukets Kings Cup Regatta

The Thai tourist industry continues its rapid recovery, with future profits expected to boom due to the return of a number of popular annual events. The island of Phuket is key to the Thai appeal: a tropical paradise with the unusual benefit of easy mainland access via two bridges. With white sandy beaches and dramatic mountains covering 70% of the land, Phuket is a tropical holiday destination clearly rivalling traditionalCaribbean Holidays. Phuket holidays also compare favourably with Mauritius holidays with their similar Indian Ocean sensibility and environment.

Among the brochure of Thailand holidays , Phuket is a ‘must see’ of the magnitude of Bangkok, but only Phuket is well positioned to take in the best of both coasts on the Thai peninsular. When you absolutely have to get away from the harsh domestic weather, visits to the island in Winter will let you take in some fabulous December sporting events. The Laguna Phuket triathlon attracts touring athletes from around the world for a punishing 1,800 metre swim followed by a 5.5 kilometre bike race and 12 kilometre run. There’s a much less gruelling six kilometre fun run for anyone who wants to have a go (though book in advance to avoid disappointment).

And then there is Phuket’s Kings Cup Regatta, an event established to celebrate the Thai king’s 60th Birthday. In its twenty fourth year, the Regatta attracts competitors from around the world and has grown to be the biggest and most popular in all of Asia. Trophies are given to winners, with many sub-categories for boats of various classes. Whilst a major event in the yacht owner’s calendar, it also brings a substantial number of spectators and passers-by to the water’s edge. Seeing the keel boats and multi-hulls facing off against each other is great fun, and there are plenty of habourside events to keep more sceptical tourists entertained.
