Entries update with one month to go for Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek 2016

“The response this year has been fantastic,” said Mr. Byron Jones, Managing Director of organisers Media Business Services Co. Ltd. (MBS).

A rush of entries from sailors in the last couple of weeks as the Early Bird deadline approached (and which is now closed), has resulted in a bumper entry list for the 13th Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek.

Leading the racing fleet are the two TP52’s of Oi! (2015 winner) and Millenium Racing II (ex-Kodo, ex-Team Origin), which is now owned by Ray Roberts.
