Asia Pacific Superyacht Sponsors ASR Cup in Phuket
The 18th annual Asia Superyacht Rendezvous Cup (ASR Cup) promises fierce racing and exclusive relaxed social events in its invitation to superyacht owners, captains & crew to attend the January 18-20, 2019 event, returning for the third year to the beautiful SALA Resort & Spa Phuket on pristine Mai Khao Bay.
The exclusive 18th annual ASR Cup event is once again sponsored by ASIA PACIFIC SUPERYACHTS. Holding the title of being the longest running and only regatta of its type in Asia, dedicated solely to invited superyacht owners and captains and crews, the event brings together an extraordinary assemblage of vessels and personages.
Kicking off with an opening day cocktail party aboard one of the stunning attending vessels, the following day is the start of the first of two days of the fierce but friendly ocean sailing race for the ‘Winner’s Cup’. Both race days will see impressive luxury motor yachts marking and following the course set forth on beautiful Mai Khao Bay, along with invited pleasure craft.
Following Day One of racing SALA Resort Phuket signals their commitment to the sporting event with a culinary highlight prepared by their international chefs from all three SALA Resorts.
Meanwhile participating superyacht crews will be enjoying a festive party under the tropical skies at the SALA Resort as they break into groups for the legendary ‘Challenge’ model boat races. Day 2 racing will set forth on a new course around the stunning Mai Khao Bay.
The Rendezvous is one of the most exclusive events in the world superyacht sector. Organisers note, “This is one of the few regattas in the world that allows both motor and sailing yachts (70’ and longer) to participate alongside each other. But unlike many superyacht gatherings and regattas, the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous Cup is all about having a jolly, fun atmosphere where participation is encouraged, but not required – an event where it is about having a great time and putting the sails up.”
Asia Pacific Superyachts has successfully organized this annual event now going into its 18th year and sees no signs of losing wind.
