Phuket Raceweek

June 30, 2010

Five nights of parties that are renowned as the best regatta parties in the region, combined with four days of high-octane yacht racing in the southwest monsoon season have elevated Six Senses Phuket Raceweek, now in its seventh year, head and shoulders above the rest.

2010 Regatta Programme

  • FREE-FLOWING BEER, WINE & SPIRITS! Continuing the tradition started in 2008, Six Senses Phuket Raceweek will have free-flowing beer, wine and spirits throughout each party, in part courtesy of our Official Suppliers Siam Winery. The rest of the format is the same as for the last five years: Four days of racing, no lay day. Five nights of parties.
  • The regatta HQ — registration, results, prizegivings and all regatta administration — will be operated from the lower sea view terrace (Into The Beach) of Evason Phuket & Six Senses Spa, adjacent to the jetty. Into the Beach is also the venue for the post-race Regatta Tavern and four of the five official regatta parties.
  • Into the Beach’s Regatta Tavern offers ice-cold post-race beers at Ao Chalong-type prices, quick snacks + mood music from Trevor… This is the place to gather off the water and chew the fat. Ask anyone who has been there for Raceweek — this is one of the best regatta venues going!
  • There will be shuttle boats from the Evason jetty for boats anchored in Ao Chalong, although past experience has shown that there is ample available anchorage right off the regatta venue.
  • All race starts will take place at 10:00 hrs off the Evason Phuket.

Regatta Sponsor launches latest supercar

The event coincides with the legendary car brand co-sponsoring Six Senses Phuket Raceweek 2010 from July 21-25.

Asia’s most glamorous ‘lifestyle marina community’ Royal Phuket Marina has also been selected for the Asian premiere of Jaguar’s latest supercar.

The All New XJ is being unveiled at RPM’s International Exhibition and Conference Centre to wealthy VIP guests invited from across the Asia-Pacific for a ‘Jaguar Driving Experience’.

The guests from Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Thailand will also be test driving the acclaimed new marque.

RPM is rolling out the red carpet for the VIPs with a welcome at one of its exclusive private villas and lunch on its Fisherman’s Wharf-style boardwalk at Mom Tri’s Boat House Regatta Restaurant.

As Jaguar celebrates its 75th anniversary at the highest echelons of motoring, a comprehensive programme to familiarise the Asian market with the latest high performance model is twinning five days of exhilarating driving with four days of high octane yacht racing.
Jaguar Overseas Operations, Director, Mick Razza said: “Set against the stunning backdrop of Phuket’s beautiful coastline, guests will experience the highest calibre of driving entertainment.”The VIPs will test-drive the All New XJ on road and track with expert instruction to appreciate the true driving experience of the model.

“This first class 360°marketing campaign rivals any of the best platforms we have used in the past.”

Organizers and rights owners of Six Senses Phuket Raceweek are Image Asia Events Co., Ltd., also founders of Phuket International Marine Expo (PIMEX), Thailand’s only boat show held each year at Royal Phuket Marina, and former organizers of Koh Samui Regatta.

Jaguar’s continued commitment to the regatta also sees the motor industry giants sponsor one of the highly regarded catamarans this year, Nina, an Andaman Cabriolet which was a victor in its first year in 2009.

Six Senses Phuket Raceweek also marks the opening leg of the Asian Yachting Grand Prix (AYGP), a selection of top class racing class events contested in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines as well as Thailand.
