The annual ASR Cup will be kicking off from the Sala Hotel with an opening night cocktail party aboard the La Numero Uno luxury yacht, a 131ft sailing yacht and the first Perini Navi to be built.

The gathering of sail and motor superyacht is an event of Thai hospitality on and off the water from January 19-21.

Long-time ASR Cup organiser Gordon Fernandes said, “We are very excited that La Numero Uno will be the host yacht for this year’s Rendezvous Cup opening night cocktail party. She is the first yacht to be constructed at the Italian high-class shipyard Perini Navi, which became world-famous for its élite superyachts, such as the Maltese Falcon.”

The yacht was completely refitted in 2014 and can accommodate 12 guests in five cabins. She was the first fully automated superyacht fitted with a ballasted swing keel that retracts into a shallow fixed keel and is raised by an electric winch when launched.

“Unlike other superyacht events and regattas, the ASR Cup is a very private gathering and all about having a jolly, fun atmosphere where participation is encouraged, but not required – where it is about having a great time and putting the sails up in hopes of winning the ASR Cup,” concluded organiser Fernandes.
