The annual Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek (Phuket Raceweek) is returning for its 15th year, from July 18 to 22, 2018, at the Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket and Kantary Bay Hotel Phuket.

Considered a primary tourism driver during Thailand’s annual ‘green season’, Phuket Raceweek continues to strengthen the island’s regional position as the yachting hub of Southeast Asia that attracts a growing number of high-net-worth individuals.

Phuket Raceweek is also one of the leading annual social events on the island, with over 40 sailing teams expected to take part. Entries and national representation are particularly strong from the Asia Pacific, including teams hailing from Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Japan, Germany, UK, USA and more. Many of these now call Phuket their home port all year around.

Registration is from 10.00 hrs to 16.00 hrs on July 18, 2018, with daily racing off Phuket’s east coast starting from 10.00 hrs. from July 19 to 22. For a full programme, please visit

The event enjoys the continued support of Tourism Authority of Thailand, Sports Authority of Thailand, Sports Association of Phuket, Yacht Racing Association of Thailand and the Phuket Yacht Club.
