More than 500 sailors will compete in the Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek 2015, set to take place July 15-19.
Mr Byron Jones, managing director of organizers Media Business Services Co. Ltd. (MBS), said: "We are very pleased to see more international participants taking part in Phuket Raceweek each year."
"There is a large local fleet of boats for charter in Phuket and nearby, and as word continues to spread about Phuket's stunning sailing grounds and Phuket Raceweek, we expect to see continued growth in the number of overseas sailors taking part."
The regatta host venue and title sponsor will be the Cape Panwa Hotel together with sister property Kantary Bay Hotel.
Jones added: "Cape Panwa Hotel is an excellent host of Phuket Raceweek. With direct beachfront access sailors can anchor metres off in safety and enjoy the Regatta Village and social activities which are in the hotel's gardens."
This year will see Mr Tirapongse Pangsrivongse, owner and CEO of the hotel's owning group Cape & Kantary Hotels, competing on his newly acquired 12.8-meter boat, Kantus' Bride.
"All of us at Cape Panwa Hotel are excited about Raceweek. It is truly a privilege to host such a prestigious event, and have an opportunity to meet such talented and driven sailors from around the globe.
"I have a personal stake in this year's regatta, as I will participate on board my own yacht. I look forward to a spirited race, and may the best crew win," said Mr Tirapongse Pangsrivongse.
