 on 

PHUKET: The SEA Properties fourth annual Multihull Challenge is set to impress with an exciting array of yachts competing for honors in the waters of Phuket.

Asia’s biggest Multihull regatta offers racing conditions second to none and is hosted by Ao Chalong Yacht Club (ACYC).

This year’s event sees the introduction of two new classes plus the national championship competition for the Corsair Cup.

Organizers have added a Cruising Class and a Classic Class to the 2011 regatta. The extremely competitive Firefly yachting race continues as Asia’s largest, and over 12 yachts are included for the Ocean Multihull Class.

Director of Racing Peter Dyer is eager to again showcase Phuket and welcome crews to ACYC from around the globe for this spectacular event.

“The SEA Properties Multihull Challenge is always packed full of surprises due to the unpredictable July weather making it a pretty open race. Yachts to watch this year are the Andaman Cabriolet Da Vinci, Alan Carwardine’s Sidewinder, Corsair Marine’s Miss Saigon and of course Voodoo Child in Firefly class.,” Peter said.

Registration takes place today, July 14 with briefing taking place at 9am on Friday July 15. This is followed by a programme of five races – two taking place on Friday, two more on Saturday and one on Sunday.
