It's the time of the year when you want the wind to blow so the Samui Regatta 21 - 28 May 2016 at Chaweng Beach will be successful. The Samui Regatta is hosted by Centara Grand Resort on Chaweng Beach and has become the 'home of the Samui Regatta'.
In the meantime this event that started very small 15 years ago, has grown to an internationally acknowledged and appreciated event and has become a highlight of the Asian sailing circuit.

As Khun Piboon Omak states, the  Koh Samui District Chief Officer;

The Samui Regatta can truly be called an international yachting event since it attracts boats from as far a field as Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and Hong Kong, as well as from all parts of Thailand, which make their way here solely to take part in this fun event.

The Regatta is organised by Regattas Asia in conjunction with the Samui Yacht Club Regatta, under the auspices of the Province of Surat Thani, the Sports Authority of Thailand, the Municipal of Koh Samui, the Tourism Association of Koh Samui, The Tourism Association of Thailand, the International Sailing Federation and the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand.

The Regatta has 4 key objectives:

  • Increase tourists to the island of Koh Samui.
  • Increase awareness and participation in watersports in Asia.
  • Establish Koh Samui as a leading Sailing Destination
  • Support youth education and sporting activities on the island.

Starting with just 11 boats, mainly made up of beach catamarans, the event gained a reputation for offering great hospitality and competitive sailing.

The fleet has now grown into one of the most competitive in Asia and is now placed as the final event of the prestigious Asian Yachting Grand Prix Championship. Crowning the 2015/2016 Asian Champion Skipper and Crew at the last night Awards and Gala Dinner. Held at Centara Grand Beach Resort.
