‘Close Quarters’ wins Phuket Raceweek Photo Contest

PHUKET: With this year’s Six Senses Phuket Raceweek getting underway Wednesday, the Phuket Gazette is proud to announce the winner of this year’s Phuket Raceweek Amateur Photo Contest.

Simon Andrews won with his photo “Close Quarters” showing two yachts in very close proximity as they prepare to round a mark mid-race, capturing in an instant just how competitive yacht racing can be in Phuket regattas.

For his exceptional photo, Mr Andrews has won a five-night stay at the The Evason Phuket & Six Senses Spa, home of the Phuket Raceweek regatta this year. The event will be held in and around Chalong Bay from Wednesday through next Sunday.

Professional photographers and people working in publishing were not eligible to enter.

A special mention goes to the photo “Evolution Sail Crew in Action” submitted by Anne Sophie on behalf of the Maestracci family.
