16th Samui Regatta from 20th to 27th May 2017

 16th Samui Regatta from 20th to 27th May 2017

It's showtime again soon for the 16th Samui Regatta from 20th to 27th May 2017. The Samui Regatta is slowly but surely becoming an institution on Koh Samui, although in my book, still a bit of an event for the elite.

The event is proudly hosted by Centara Grand Beach Resort - Samui, which is widely regarded as the "Home of the Samui Regatta".

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 2016/2017 Asian Champion Skipper and Crew at the last night Awards and Gala Dinner. Held at Centara Grand Beach Resort.

Despite these challenging economic times, the event has grown every year to become a truly international event with around 500 competitors joining in annually from over 22 different countries. Generating an estimated 30 million baht worth of media coverage and over 18 million baht into the local Koh Samui economy annually.

Please do 'like' my Koh Samui blog Facebook page and enjoy the beaches around the island or in front of your hotel or resort and get some well deserved rest and a break. If you're done resting or need something else to do, there's plenty of things on offer on and around Koh Samui, you can go snorkeling or diving or take a dive course. You can also enjoy some of the trips I recommend, like a half day gourmet lunch and snorkeling trip at the Southern part of Koh Samui or a photography trip where you get to see the most photo genetic spots on the island or go for a drinks tasting tour if you like a tipple or two. 

Contact me for more detailed information on any of the options mentioned.
