More than 400 sailors and friends from 30 countries are expected to attend the regatta this year, which has become fondly known as the “Tropical Regatta” due to its elegant tropical setting and nightly parties on the beach.
Samui Island is a favourite destination with sailors from around the world as it combines perfect sailing conditions with tropical chic and warm island hospitality. The idyllic setting and luxurious lifestyle offered by the regatta and Samui Island culminates in an elegant and memorable Gala Dinner under the stars at Centara Grand Beach Resort Samui, who celebrating their 20th anniversary this year will pull out the stops.
