Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek and Junior Phuket Raceweek ready to roll

Inaugural Junior Phuket Raceweek set for 20th July
The inaugural Junior Phuket Raceweek is shaping up with a strong line of Thai and international youth sailors competing in two classes, Optimist and Topper.

Organised by Media Business Services (MBS) and co-hosted by Regent Phuket Cape Panwa and Panwa Beach Resort Phuket, the youth regatta starts with an opening reception on Friday 19th July at Regent Cape Panwa followed by one day of racing on Saturday 20th July and a beach barbecue and prize-giving at Panwa Beach Resort Phuket.

Royal Thai Navy Rear Admiral Prasart Sribhadung is confirmed to be the Race Officer for the inaugural one-day event and will set up to six races, a combination of trapezoid and windward/leeward courses, for the multinational fleet of youngsters.

Since it was announced earlier in the year, Junior Phuket Raceweek has been well received by the local sailing community and has received strong support from two of the leading yacht clubs on the Island, Ao Chalong Yacht Club (ACYC) and the Phuket Youth Sailing Club (PYSC).

More recently, the Royal Thai Navy has pledged safety support for the event, further underscoring the organiser's goal to make it a community event.

“From the beginning we wanted to create a competitive sailing opportunity for youngsters on the Island, and welcome youngsters from afar. And with the support of the two leading yacht clubs and now support from the Royal Thai Navy, it’s great to see the Island sailing community coming together and getting behind Junior Phuket Raceweek,” said Byron Jones, Managing Director of organisers Media Business Services (MBS).

Phuket's east coast and the Panwa area offers some of the best sailing conditions on the Island during July, and together with co-hosts Regent Phuket Cape Panwa and Panwa Beach Resort Phuket, the area is an ideal location for the inaugural Junior Phuket Raceweek.

Registration for Junior Phuket Raceweek will take place on Friday 19th July at Regent Phuket Cape Panwa between 13:00 and 17:00, followed by an opening party, with racing on Saturday 20th July.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
