Learn to Race Yachts

Learn to Race Yachts using the techniques employed in our racing course, with our specially designed program and enter as crew, into local Phuket Regattas. Sail in Asia has 7 Platus and 4  larger IRC yachts, that are available for the regattas we plan to participate in, this year.

Our Race Training Courses are run by us, for our PWSC sailing club members and are designed to give members, a simple entry to Yacht Racing.  If you can sail (Zero To Hero students) then you can easily learn to race. Its really not rocket science!  The prize is The Phuket Heroes Cup for the Sailors Regatta.

  • WE explain what a yacht race is –
  • The start procedure -The Starting line
  • Simple rules
  • The first leg
