September 01, 2017

Written by Rachael Steele

Preparations are already underway for the 17th edition of the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous Cup, which will take part at the exclusive SALA Phuket Resort within the lush Mai Khao Bay.

20 minutes from Phuket International Airport, the destination is perfectly nestled between other famous areas of natural beauty, including Phang Nga Bay.

The competitions draw in superyachts of all shapes and sizes, bringing together serious and casual racers and spectators for an extended weekend of exciting racing and beach-side parties. While the ASR Cup is the event’s most coveted prize, there is a Corinthian Class to allow everyone to enjoy a day out with fun and competition without the competitive atmosphere of the main event.

As an event designed for new racers and veterans alike, Captain Pascal Pellat-Finet of S/Y TIARA enthused after attending the last Rendezvous Cup:

“Fair sailing with great people – an event not to miss”.

“Not only does this unique event associate the SALA brand with the luxury leisure sector, it also helps shine the light on Mai Khao beach as a stunning tropical destination for visitors arriving by land or sea,” continued Mr Reschke. “The Asia Superyacht Rendezvous has strong synergy with SALA Phuket as we strive to offer our guests an exclusive, personalised experience with plenty of opportunities for fun exploration and inspiring adventures.”

We look forward to welcoming all to the largest on-water gathering of superyachts in Asia.”
