Many owners will be extending their stay to enjoy the holiday season’s cruising options on the Andaman seas with some journeying on to explore among the 800 uninhabited islands of Myanmar.

The ASR Cup will take place offshore with racing sailing yacht action accompanied by pleasure sailing vessels and motor yachts moored along the course. The Committee Boat, Siam Princess, will be motoring around the course on ASR race days with Race Director, Captain Andy Dowden, on board with VIP guests.

On the opening day, the ‘Captain’s Briefing’ will be followed with guests whisked away by tenders awaiting at the custom-built jetty to speed them to the opening night cocktail party aboard the La Numero Uno.

Other events include a challenge boat building and racing party, a superyacht dress parade, and the VIP Gala dinner and ASR awards ceremony.
