Best Asian Regatta of the Year 2011

May 19, 2011

SIX SENSES Phuket Raceweek, now in its eighth year, has been voted Best Asian Regatta of the Year in the Asia Boating Awards 2011, which recognise the cream of Asia’s marine industry across 23 categories, from boat builders to marinas to regattas.

”We’re delighted with the accolade, which reflects what our participants have been telling us for the past several years,” said Grenville Fordham, MD of regatta rights owners and organisers Image Asia.

Six Senses Phuket Raceweek 2011, renowned across Asia for its magnificent yacht racing and extravagant beachside parties, will be held from July 20-24 2011 at the Evason Phuket and Bon Island on Phuket’s Southeast coast.

The awards ceremony was held at the Gold Coast Yacht and Country Club in Hong Kong on May 6, on a beautiful setting just by the marina bay. The assembled crowd of owners, brokers and builders was entertained by a live music performance featuring some of the best musicians on Hong Kong’s jazz and blues circuit. A complete list of winners is below.
