The Phuket One Design Regatta October 1st-4th 2020

The Phuket One Design Regatta is scheduled for 1st – 4th October (the ‘windy’ month) in 2020.   In 2017 we started the Asian Airlines regatta with the same fleet in 2020.  One Design Yacht Racing is popular all over the world but its hard to find big fleets in Asia.

The Platu Fleet will be available to high quality teams from Australia New Zealand  and from Asia. The Farr 1104 fleet will also be available for One Design racing as will the Pulse 600 trimarans plus the Phuket Firefly fleet.  Sponsors will ensure there are Prizes, Parties and BBQs.

We expect 4 One Design Classes to join this regatta.  At least two of the classes will offer charter possibilities to crews from all over Asia and Europe. Prizes will be presented by sponsors.

The Phuket One Design Regatta October 1st-4th 2020

The Phuket One Design Regatta is scheduled for 1st – 4th October (the ‘windy’ month) in 2020.  We have recently introduced the only monohull One Design Class in Phuket, the Platus. This has grown to a seven boat fleet.  In 2017 we started the Asian Airlines Regatta with the pilots from Asian Airlines in SE Asia. but its hard to find big fleets in Asia.

One Design Yacht Racing is popular all over the world.  Racing sailors, in South East Asia want to sail against crews who sail identical yachts, with same sails, same weight, same equipment and same performance . The SIA Platu Fleet will be available to high quality teams from Australia New Zealand  and from Asia for this event.  The Farr 1104 fleet will also be available for One Design racing as will the Pulse 600 trimarans.  We expect that the Phuket Firefly fleet will also join the racing.  Sponsors will ensure there are Prizes and BBQs.

Review the One Design Yacht Regatta and then figure out what boat you want to sail in. The event will be a really exciting one and is likely to be well hosted with great sponsors helping us to create a sports spectacular on water.  We expect 4 One Design Classes to join this regatta.  At least two of the classes will offer charter possibilities to crews from all over Asia and Europe. Prizes will be presented by sponsors.
