The penultimate day of racing in the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta concluded with a lavish beachfront party at Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket on Karon Beach. The resort, together with AIA Thailand, hosted the prize-giving ceremony in front of a large crowd of sailors and supporters with great music and a delicious seafood barbecue. Eurasia and Starlight provided spectacular music performances, and party-goers stayed long into the night to enjoy the famous Phuket King’s Cup Regatta hospitality. Guests were cooled by a soothing ocean breeze as competitors relaxed before the climatic finale to the Regatta the following day.
