Race Week changes course

Race Week changes course

PHUKET: The organisers of Phuket Race Week have brushed aside rumours and confirmed that the event will go ahead this year, despite still not having decided on a host venue.

Wednesday 11 April 2012, 11:24AM


A press release, issued early this week, said: “After eight excellent years at Evason Phuket, the regatta must move. Ownership changes, plans to sell the property and so on left Phuket Raceweek organisers looking for a new host venue. With venue negotiations drawing to a close, an announcement can be expected soon.”

However, they did confirm that the racing area will still be the same – in and around the Chalong Bay area and surrounding islands, and that it will be staged from July 18-22.

Accommodation options will be announced when the regatta venue is confirmed, though in the meantime they said people should feel confident in making plans to attend.

Coming into its ninth year, the regatta will be run over six or seven classes, including cruising, bareboat and charter yachts.
