Under the Royal Patronage of His Majesty the King of Thailand, the Regatta is organised by the Phuket King's Cup Regatta Organising Committee under the auspices of the Royal Varuna Yacht Club, in conjunction with the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand, the Royal Thai Navy and the Province of Phuket.
Over 150 boats and more than 1,500+ sailors will be represented in this year’s race. The Regatta serves as a prestigious platform for sponsors looking to Asia for growth, and boasts a long record of delivering successful sponsorship programs for supporters.
The Regatta’s series of beachside parties will attract over 1,500 VIP guests, world-class sailors, participants as well as local and international media around the world. This gives participating sponsors a chance to connect to both customers and business stakeholders in an exciting and rewarding programme of sponsorship and engagement.
Many past sponsors of the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta return year after year to enjoy the public connection and media appeal. Last year’s sponsors included Principal Host Sponsor Kata Group Resorts Thailand, and Strategic Partners: The Government Lottery Office (GLO), Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), and Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT). Co-Sponsors were Central Pattana, PTT PLC, Siam Winery & Montclair and Haadthip PCL.
