The regatta has just been voted “Best Asian Regatta 2011” at the annual Asia Boating Awards in Hong Kong. It is the only second of Thailand’s six regattas to receive this award.
“Six Senses is delighted to continue its close relationship with Phuket Raceweek and we are pleased it has gained international recognition as the region’s most entertaining multi-hull sailing event,” said John Philipson, Six Senses Resorts and Spas managing director, Thailand.
Dee Caffari, Six Senses ambassador, a well known yachting personality, will also be on hand for this year’s event. Dee became the first woman to sail solo, non stop, around the world against prevailing winds and currents. She was awarded an MBE in recognition for her achievement.
