Sailors are known to relish a challenge, whether it be a round-the-world passage or a crossing in high seas, or in the case of Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek this year, getting in a series of racing with just three days of breeze. The Race Management did it. The sailors did it. And another great Raceweek was brought to a close.
The first two days of this year’s Regatta were possibly the best on record. A combination of good winds and stunning weather made for some great racing for the sailors, and great photos and video for the media.
Then Day 3 happened. Or did not happen, as the winds never turned up. Despite the PRO’s best efforts, racing was abandoned.
The final day dawned and while some forecasts were for more of the same (or worse) than Day 3, they were proved wrong as the breeze filled in allowing the PRO to get in another race and complete the series.
It’s a date Put in your diary, your Google Calendar or whatever it is you use…, the dates for the 12th Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek are 15th – 19th July 2015.
