Raja Laut at the King’s Cup

One of the cornerstones of Asia’s yachting scene, the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta is Asia’s biggest and most popular regatta. More than a regatta, the week long event consists of great parties, great sailing and lots of fun.

Inaugurated in 1987 to celebrate the 60th birthday of His Majesty the King of Thailand, the event has been held every year since during the first week of December. With the Royal Patronage of His Majesty is organised by the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta Organising Committee under the auspices of the Royal Varuna Yacht Club, in conjunction with the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand, the Royal Thai Navy, and the Province of Phuket.

Property developer Raimon Land has once again extended title sponsorship to the King’s Cup Regatta for a further five years, and the classes this year include IRC racing, Sportsboat, Firefly 850, Sunsail One Design, Multihull, Bareboat charter, Ocean Rover, and Classic.

This year the yacht Raja Laut will be in attendance not to race, but to shadow the races and attend to the supporting parties of photographers, agents, friends and old sea dogs !

A Raja Laut yacht charter is an option during the King’s Cup as well for the Raja Muda International Regatta (Malaysia), and the Singapore Straits Regatta (Singapore).
