The Regatta


Since its birth in 2002, Samui Regatta has grown to attract the best yachts in Asia and a large spectator following who come to Koh Samui for great sailing, great parties and to experience all that the island has to offer.



The 2019 Regatta will see a change of host venue to Synergy Samui Resort, although the Regatta and it's social events will remain based around Chaweng Beach.



The Regatta is organised by Regattas Asia, under the auspices of the Province of Surat Thani, the Sports Authority of Thailand, the Municipal of Koh Samui, the Tourism Association of Koh Samui, The Tourism Association of Thailand, World Sailing and the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand.



The Regatta has 4 key objectives:




Increase tourists to the island of Koh Samui.

Increase awareness and participation in watersports in Asia.

Establish Koh Samui as a leading Sailing Destination

Support youth education and sporting activities on the island.


Starting with just 11 boats, mainly made up of beach catamarans, the event gained a reputation for offering great hospitality and competitive sailing.



The fleet has now grown into one of the most competitive in Asia and is now placed as the final event of the prestigious Asian Yachting Grand Prix Championship. Crowning the 2018/2019 Asian Champion Skipper and Crew at the last night Awards Dinner.



Following number of management and name changes, Regattas Asia took over the organisation of the event in 2012 and has brought the regatta back to its roots, bringing back the name Samui Regatta and returning the social events to their rightful place, on the beach.



Despite these challenging economic times, the event has grown every year to become a truly international event with around 500 competitors joining in annually from over 22 different countries. Generating an estimated 30 million baht worth of media coverage and over 18 million baht into the local Koh Samui economy annually.



Our Sponsors have all come together to support our event and we are indebted to our hosts and our co-partners: Synergy Samui Resort, Resotel, Mount Gay Rum, Budget Car and Truck Rentals, The Tourism Authority of Thailand(TAT) and the Sports Authority of Thailand (SAT) who have made this years event possible.



As a Regatta our thanks go to all our Island supporters, suppliers, volunteers, media and most importantly.... the competitors who have now supported the event for 18 years, making Koh Samui one of Asia's favorite regatta destinations.
