Wilmslow, United Kingdom (PressExposure) June 25, 2009 -- Regatta, the occasion of ultimate fun-fare at Koh Samui [http://www.livethedream.com], witnessed a redefined jovial mood this year. Starting from June 1, Regatta 2009 proudly displayed 40 yachts competing neck to neck for honour. Scores of sailing enthusiasts from different corners of the globe, crews and spectators applauded this cherishing moment. Chaweng Beach was decorated with all pomp and ceremony and the element of festivity, excitement and thrill was visible every where.
Regatta 2009 is the eighth edition of sailing competition and now it is regarded as one of the leading sailing events of Asia. Presence of Racing, Premier, IRC, Bareboat, Sports Boats and Multihulls made Regatta 2009 a really world class event. Nail-biting moments of Neil Prydeâs Hi-Fi and Ray Robertsâ Quantum Racing left spectators spell-bound. There was a pre-regatta party on May 31 for the crews to provide them some relaxations before such a stiff competition. This party marked too much extravaganza and wide range of wine and dine alternatives.
Regatta 2009 was the biggest regatta. Along with it, it was also the most-participated lifestyle event on the island to date. Organizers are optimistic that it will change the way other sporting events in Thailand give back to the community. Regatta 2009 also marked the second edition of âSamui Junior Sailing Squadron Challengeâ. This event gave local children to reveal their yachting expertise. Regatta is increasingly being popular as tourist-puller. Occupancy rate at the time of Regatta is stupendously high and keeping the popularity of this event organisers are now planning to make it more exciting from next year.
