POSTED ON 5/2/2017

The excitement is escalating for the 16th Regatta event to take place on Samui. From May 20 to 27, Centara Grand Beach Resort, the host of the prestigious Regatta, will see an influx of over 500 sailors coming from different corners of Asia. The Resort is located on Chaweng Beach, a popular area on Samui due to its paradise vibes and sandy shores.

A schedule has been released revealing the details of the highly-coveted Regatta. There are numerous events set up after registration, such as the lavish opening dinner, where enthusiasts for the Regatta will have the chance to connect. Throughout the week-long event, races will unfold during the day with prize giveaways occurring after the sun goes down.

While the sailors glide across Samui’s crystal-clear waters, spectators will have the chance to watch the races from the comfort of boats specifically allocated to eager viewers. If attendees are interested in watching the races up close, they will have to book beforehand. On the final day, a gala is scheduled to take place from 19:00 onwards.

Visitors have a variety of options, from the resorts, villas, and hotels lining the shores of Chaweng beach, to Chaweng’s cheerful neighbour, Lamai. There are several places to stay near to Centara Grand Beach Resort.  

The Regatta gives the island a chance to let the whole of Asia know that Samui is a prime sailing location, with smooth calm waters and a tropical atmosphere. Samui is a great place for travellers to visit and for sailors to set sail!
