Dear Sailors and all stakeholders in the PKCR,
On behalf of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta Organizing Committee we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your participation in the 2017 31st Anniversary Phuket King’s Cup Regatta.
The continuation of this prestigious event has been a boon for the sailing community, for the island of Phuket and for the sport of sailing in Asia.
As we look forward to 2018 we are excited to provide the tentative dates for the Regatta, set at this time to be hosted from December 1 to 8, 2018. The focus will again be on competitive racing under IRC, and for the event to make a universal contribution to the growth and international success of our sport.
In the year 2018, as in recent years, we shall be hosting a dinghy series regatta, and we encourage youth sailors from around the world to consider participation in this event. The dinghy series has been growing immensely in popularity and is part of the Regatta’s contribution to promoting youth sailing in Phuket and southern Thailand. The year 2018 will have (as a minimum) the Optimist and Laser classes participating.
Please mark your calendars and ensure you’re planning to join us in 2018 for another fun-filled memorable week of excellent sportsmanship and sailing.
Thank you for your ongoing support of this magnificent sporting occasion, and we will see you in Phuket.
