QBE Phang Nga Bay Regatta 2006
Phang Nga, Thailand

The Organizing Committee for the 2006 QBE Phang Nga Regatta, scheduled for 27-31 January, have announced the Registration Book is now open for business. The previous eight Regattas have grown in popularity with the local yachts but, in latter years, representation from outside Thailand has increased significantly.
The 2005 event attracted 27 entries in five classes. Andrew CRAIG, Committee President, commented, 'We are seeking to encourage more international yachts to join the committed locals in this event whose reputation for serious - yet fun - sailing in probably the most stunning waters in the world, grows as each year passes. Couple this with a social calendar rivalling the best and you have the recipe for a fantastic and unique experience.'

This year, as always, the regatta will take place over the Chinese New Year with registration and the opening party on Friday 27 January followed by racing around Phang Nga Bay over the next four days ending back in Phuket on the following Tuesday. The racing will take the fleet to Koh Yao, Krabbi and, thankfully, back to Phi Phi before the final race to Phuket.

The Notice of Race (NOR) will be posted on the website shortly.

As in all such events, sponsors are key to its success. The 2006 event has already attracted serious interest and with it being the final year of QBE Insurance's wonderful support as title sponsor, this prestigious slot is available for 2007. Many other sponsorship opportunities are available and are detailed on the website. The support of sponsors and entrants last year enabled the Committee to donate significant funds towards Children's Projects in Phuket and Krabbi - post Tsunami.
