One Design Racing

The warm waters of SE Asia, booming economies and the growing interest in watersports it’s no wonder there so many new yacht racing regattas developing in Asia these days. The Asian  Airlines One Design Regatta, in Phuket, is the latest.  Established in 2017 this regatta has been enthusiastically supported by Airline pilots based in Hong Kong in tandem with Sail in Asia.

The aim of this Asian Airlines Regatta is to have fleets of One design yachts competing against each other.  As we all know, One Design Yacht Racing is fabulous  fun, as it’s a level playing field and that means the best team, almost always wins the races.

This One Design Fleets Regatta is characterised by gentlemanly racing and great sportsmanship. The inaugural 3 day event had zero protests and fabulous camaraderie, as well as great BBQ and final party.  This year we aim to expand our fleets by introducing two more classes and of course a lot more competitors, but retaining the spirit and the character of the event.

Asia’s new One Design Regatta 22-25 October 2018

This year we are offering 3 One Design Classes. Farr 25 Platus (6),  Pulse 600 Trimarans(5) and Farr 1104 (3) Racing Yachts.  The venue will be Ao Yon and Chalong Bay as per last year.  Simon Ludlow will be the race officer and Sail in Asia will organise beach and on water logistics.
