Online Registration for Phuket Raceweek 2009 Opens with Early Bird Specials

Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 22 May 2009

Online registration for the Six Senses Phuket Raceweek regatta has opened with savings of up to 25% for entries received by 19 June.

The Six Senses Phuket Raceweek will be held from 22-26 July at the Evason Phuket & Six Senses Spa, with racing off the southern tip of Phuket.

 Grenville Fordham, MD of Raceweek organisers and rights owners, IMAGE asia, said, “We hope everyone takes advantage of the ‘early bird’ entry fees. The participants get a great deal and we get the information we need to plan the best event possible – so we all win.”

Raceweek 2008 saw five Firefly 850s battle it out in 25 knots of wind and a heavy swell. This year, eight or nine are expected to be in the line up, those sold outside Phuket having made their way back ‘home’.

 It is still not clear how many Corsair trimarans, which have started arriving in Phuket in increasing numbers, will make it to Raceweek; much depends on whether Pattaya-based Corsair owners decide to bring these light, trailerable multis south in July to test their competitiveness in the both the SEA Property three-day multihull event scheduled for 3-5 July and Raceweek on 22 July.

Fireflys apart, the multihull fleet looks like being the most interesting yet, with the anticipated participation of Henry Kaye's and Arnie Duckworth's new 'flying machines'.

In another multihull development, a new catamaran design built in Phuket will use Raceweek as its sales launch. The Andaman Cabriolet, by Composite Catamarans, is being promoted as the ideal multihull ‘cruiser-racer’ for the Andaman Sea. The Composite guys are looking for a convincing performance during Raceweek with their first boat (Niña), which is scheduled for launch just a couple of week before the racing starts.

Composite Catamarans have also come on board as a sponsor of the Six Senses Phuket Raceweek 2009, staging a competition in conjunction with Evason Phuket.

 The first prize is a charter holiday on Niña, combined with accommodation at Evason, worth around 5,000 Euros.
