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”.
The hosting SALA Resort will provide participating guests with exceptional luxury services throughout the competition: SALA’s Group Director of Business Development, Mr Nicolas Reschke, and Regional General Manager, Mr Jon Ashenden, commented: “Following our successful partnership last year, we are delighted to support the Asia Superyacht Rendezvous once again this year to create a memorable experience for all the attending superyacht owners, captains, crew and VIP guests.
“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.”
“As always, the ASR Cup is a fantastic chance to either market your boat with international media covering the event, or just to have some fun with friends old and new on the beautiful Phuket coastline,” Asia Superyacht Rendezvous Cup Organiser, Gordon Fernandes, stated. “Yachts will be given valuable exposure, while owners’ privacy will be respected at all times. We look forward to welcoming all to the largest on-water gathering of superyachts in Asia.”
