Kings Cup Rating

Overall rating: Natives:
Weather: Social scene:
Racing quality: Cost:
Sailing conditions: Exotic Locale:


  • Cost is fantastic
  • Party scene is very good - Phuket rolls out it's finest and parties are all yachties
  • Weather is great, but sailing conditions poor because of bad wind
  • Charter as big a boat as you can to make up for low wind

The Inside Scoop

"The regatta is as beautiful as it is fun. The race committee rolls Phi Phi island into the regatta and the mixture of tropical back packer haven and quality boats makes for a great time..."
