Phuket Toppers Add to King's Cup Regatta Fun

Friday, November 30, 2012
PHUKET: A Topper Fleet is joining this year's Phuket King's Cup Regatta. Part of the PKCR International Dinghy Classes, they will compete from December 2-5 off Kata Beach, Phuket, Thailand.

Windsurfers are also part of this year's event, with a sizeable contingent coming from China - and more anticipated in years to come.

The Topper is an ISAF-Recognised racing class with 35 countries across the world sharing the Topper sailing experience. Every year there is a spectacular world championship.

The Topper is renowned for its versatility. It has been hailed as a thoroughbred boat with dual appeal, simple and fun for newcomers and a challenging racy singlehander as confidence quickly grows.

Toppers have bred the most distinguished national and international champions.

Topper Sail Phuket are providing 12 Toppers for the event.

Six sailors from the Phuket Youth Sailing Club will be joining the fleet, including Akapoj Kankeaw winner of the Optimist Class at the 2011 Phuket King's Cup Regatta.

Six new Toppers are available for charter for the four day Regatta at 4000 baht per boat.
