Large turnout tipped for King’s Cup

PHUKET TOWN: Organizers expect about 80 yachts and up to 700 sailors from 20 countries to take part in this year’s Phuket King’s Cup Regatta. The event dates of November 30 to December 7 were confirmed today at a meeting between regatta officials and Governor CEO Pongpayome Vasaputi. He said the 16th annual regatta would also form a part of the celebrations for the birthday of HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej on December 5. The yacht racing was a major tourist draw and officials would meet next month to see how the province could become involved in the regatta, the governor added. This year’s racing will start at Koh Phi Phi Don then move to Kata.
