Koh Samui Regatta

Koh Samui Regatta is the ultimate sailing experience to sample the island’s finest features; think sun, sea and sailing for the perfect getaway.

Hosted by Centara Grand Beach Resort in Samui, the event is the biggest regatta of its kind in Asia and, as expected, attracts visitors from Thailand and beyond.

The resort, often called the ‘home of the regatta in Samui‘, does live up to its name. A regatta can be defined as a series of yacht races held at a specific location and usually follows a set of rules.

The organisers of Koh Samui Regatta, Regattas Asia, work in conjunction with the Samui Yacht Club Regatta to bring one of the most spectacular events to the island. The schedule for this regatta is prepared in advance to allow participants and visitors to get ready.

Registration for the regatta is followed by the opening party, the practice race, the actual race, and daily prize-giving sessions over the next few days. The one week of fantastic sailing skills makes for an exciting adventure on the turquoise waters, while the evening parties offer visitors the chance to connect with other sailing enthusiasts.

Koh Samui has no marinas, so yachts are anchored off Chaweng Beach. In the event of exceptional weather conditions, some boats may seek additional shelter at Bo Phut Beach north of the Island. Complementary “longtail” transfers at available before and after racing from the beach in front of “Tradewinds by Lawana” beach resort. Please arrive early as the number of longtails available in Koh Samui is limited, and it can take some time to deliver crew to all the yachts.

All starts happen from a committee boat line off Chaweng Beach offshore, so please remember that it may take considerable time to get to your start, depending on where the line is positioned, and allow plenty of time.

Course Diagrams for the Samui Regatta will be available for download before the event, and a laminated set of course diagrams will be issued at registration. Courses are designed each day, considering the weather forecast, tidal streams, and speed of each class of boat.

The week-long Koh Samui Regatta means that participants and visitors must book accommodation. The good news is that plenty of options are available on the pristine beaches of Chaweng Beach. The beachfront resorts are sailor-friendly, and their proximity to various amenities makes the Regatta a must-attend event.
