“During the island’s famous annual sports event, the Phuket King’s Regatta, Phuket’s south west coast is crowded with yachts from all over the world. The beautiful sea around Phuket is more lively and fascinating during this time. It is also the time that we can cheer our favorite crews and yachts to win their category. If you have a chance to come to Phuket at this time, why don’t you join or watch the event. It would make you fall in love with the indigo sea and blue sky embracing this island.”
Phuket King’s Cup Regatta
The regatta was first held in 1987, to celebrate His Majesty King Bhumipol’s 60th birthday anniversary and to honor HM the King’s sailing skills. It is held at the beginning of December every year. This sailing tournament brings a lot of foreigners to Phuket as well as makes people know more about the island.
Phuket has been glad to be the host location of this international sailing tournament for over 20 years. Now the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta is one of the highlights of Phuket apart from its white powdery sand and blue sky.
