1st December 2019: Over 70 yachts are ready to contest the 33rd edition of Asia’s biggest and most prestigious sailing regatta, in grand style. Although the main focus is split between keelboats and multihull’s during the week, the next generation of sailors are also racing in the International Dinghy classes and receiving a lot of attention. Initially dedicated to HM the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej for his passion for sailing and now in honor of His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun, sailors are expecting a week of fast and furious action. This is the one, they really want to win and already the air is full of anticipation and wild speculation, on how the racing will unfold. The 21 year longstanding spiritual home of the King’s Cup, the stylish Beyond Resort Kata, has rolled out the red carpet and welcoming sailors from all over the world.
