Andy Tsavos, General Manager, Nikki Beach Samui said, “We look forward to hosting many of Asia’s leading sailors and their families together with the international travelers and yachting enthusiasts the event always attracts. Over the years, the regatta has consistently raised the profile of Samui as a yachting destination. We believe that with the sponsorship of Nikki Beach, that profile will now be raised to a whole new level.”

The Sawadee.com Samui Regatta 2009 will take place on Monday 1st June, Tuesday 2nd June, Wednesday 3rd June, Friday 5th June and Saturday 6th June. On the lay day of Thursday 4th June a Children’s Junior Regatta will be held.
