Six Senses Phuket Raceweek 2008,
one of the most exciting mixed fleet regattas in the region, will be held from 23 - 27 July 2008 at the
Evason Phuket & Six Senses Spa on Phuket Island’s southeast coast.
Evason Phuket has been the Raceweek base from the first event in 2004 and has proven to be one of Asia’s most treasured regatta venues.
Now in its 5th year, the Six Senses Phuket Raceweek 2008 combines four days of competitive racing with five nights of grand waterside
parties – a format that has met with unanimous approval from competitors.
“Six Senses are delighted to be associated with this prestigious event because sailing as a sport fits with our core purpose ‘to create
innovative and enriching experiences in a sustainable environment’,” said Six Senses Chairman & CEO, Sonu Shivdasani. “We look
forward to working closely with the organisers so that, together, we can build on what has already been achieved and confirm Six Senses
Phuket Raceweek as one of the region’s top sailing events.”
Evason Phuket’s Into the Beach
venue, will provide party space for the ever-growing number
of competitors, while Six Senses title sponsorship means a massive leap forward in catering, with a diverse range of innovative full buffet
spreads at every party. Evason Phuket’s regatta headquarters lends itself to the unique one-regatta-one-venue policy, with registration,
post-race regatta bar, prize givings and parties all in the same waterside location.
“The entire team at Evason Phuket has enjoyed hosting Phuket Raceweek since the beginning. In becoming the title sponsor under the Six
Senses brand, this will continue to promote new awareness of the region as a premier sailing destination,” said Henry Gray, Area General
Manager, Six Senses, adding, “We’re all looking forward to another successful Raceweek in 2008."
