UHD Video Interview with Organiser of Phuket Raceweek, Byron Jones

The 16th Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek came to a thrilling end on Sunday, but with totally unprecedented and unpredictable weather conditions wreaking havoc on race schedules, it was not smooth sailing for organiser, Byron Jones.

In this exclusive interview, filmed at the Cape Panwa Hotel on 20 July 2019, Steven Howard of asks Byron about Phuket Raceweek, how 2019 compares to previous years, where sailors are coming from, and how he would like to see the event grow and develop.

We discuss technology, and you will learn how one app in particular was used to improve communications between the organiser's team and sailors - both on land and at sea.

Byron tells us what is being done to promote the event in Australia, as well as to the growing number of sailors in wealthy regional markets such as Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and mainland China.

We also discuss boats and whether there are sufficient charter boats in Phuket to support the growth of Phuket Raceweek, as well as what categories of boats Byron would like to see expand.

We talk about what the event brings to Phuket, how long Cape Panwa Hotel has signed up to be the title sponsor and host, and you will learn how you can save money on next year's Phuket Raceweek. All that and much, much more in the UHD video and podcast below.
