Goto AY Pre-Regatta Report16th Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek ready to go...
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
July 17th Cape Panwa: Despite being a little over six weeks since the 2018-19 season ending Samui Regatta, the racing community are moving headlong into the 2019-20 Season opening Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek. Strategically positioned to take advantage of Phuket's 'Green Season', it comes early in the season and is designed to take advantage of the South West Monsoon conditions. Over the years this has varied from dead flat calms, to storm strewn and blustery SW trade winds. The Title Sponsor and Host Venue, Cape Panwa Hotel and Kantary Bay Hotel continue on with the signature ‘one regatta, one venue’ format, four nights of grand waterside parties, free-flow of drinks and sumptuous food, where crews can expect plenty of action on and off the water.

Whitcraft's THA72 make history with 4 Samui wins in a row
Roberts Team Hollywood AYGP Skipper & Yacht of the Year

Goto AY Race Report 5 & SummaryBy AY MultiMedia
June 1st, Koh Samui, Thailand: Surprisingly what appeared to be some semblance of wind this morning, had the sailors manning their boats and heading North to the channel between Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, where a 4 to 5 knot Westerly awaited them. All eyes were on the IRC 0 class, as they jockeyed around during the pre-start. When they approached the line with less than a minute to go, Kevin & Tom Whitcraft's TP52 THA72 were cut off in their tracks and dispatched to the back of the pack.
