Samui Regatta returns to its roots for 2022.

Youth Teams Celebrate

Samui Regatta returns to its roots from 26th-30th July with a beach-based regatta hosted by The Banana Fan Sea Resort on Chaweng Beach.

Starting in 2001 with just 11 boats, mainly made up of small, beach-launched boats, Over the next 17 years, Samui Regatta quickly gained a reputation for offering great hospitality and competitive sailing for international and Thailand local Sailors alike. 

With the re-opening of Koh Samui, the event organisers have joined with the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the Koh Samui Tourism Association and the Royal Thai Navy to invite junior sailors from around Thailand to a beach-based 2022 Regatta.

The future of sailing in Thailand will be on show over the extended holiday period (27th - 30th July), around the Birthday of his Majesty the King of Thailand.

Over 40 entries will compete in seven classes, including Optimist (Under 10/12 years divisions), Lasers and keelboats. Competitors will be joined by supporters and families travelling to Samui from around Thailand, helping to boost the local economy. 

Discussing the expansion of small boat racing, Simon James - Race Director of the Samui Regatta, said :

"Samui Regatta has always supported the development of youth sailing as part of our programme. I'm delighted to be able to expand the activities."

"The big boat fleet traditionally has a large entry from overseas crews, arriving from Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines. After cancellation in 2020/2021, the event moved from its traditional dates (May), awaiting a reduction of regulations for arriving vessels. Unfortunately, while Thailand is now open for boat arrivals, it is still not easy for international teams to return home after the Regatta. As organisers, we have to accept limited keelboat entries for 2022 and look forward to their return next year, May 20th-27th, 2023."

The Notice of Race is available online at www.samuiregatta.com

The programme includes a 4-day dinghy series and a daily cruising race for larger boats. An after-sailing social event will be held daily at the Banana Fan Sea Resort.

The Samui Tourism Association and our sponsor members have all supported this event. The event is indebted to our hosts and co-partners: Banana Fan Sea Resort, Bangkok Hospital Samui, Haad Thip, The Authority of Thailand(TAT) and the Sports Authority of Thailand (SAT), who have made this year's event possible.

Samui Island is famous for its white-sand beaches, warm blue sea, shimmering coconut palms, and picture-postcard tropical appeal. Still, few know its position as a leading sports tourism destination. The Thai government has a clear policy to promote sports tourism, attracting more international events and sports people to the country. Samui Island has hosted several world-class international sports events; the largest and longest-running is the Samui Regatta.

Turning 19 this year, Samui Regatta has grown to attract the best yachts in Asia and a large spectator following who come to Samui for great sailing, excellent beach parties, and to experience the island's acclaimed hospitality.
