Thailand's Pulse 600 fleet have already impressed locals earlier in the year following their introduction in the Phuket Race Week and Multihull Solutions Regatta, and it is expected they will also be quickly snapped up for charter in the King’s Cup Regatta from 5-12 December.
Multihull Solutions, the Thailand distributor for Corsair Marine will be receiving their first Pulse 600 this week. This will become the fifth Pulse in the Thai fleet, just in time for Kings Cup. The Phuket King’s Cup Regatta is Asia’s biggest and most popular regatta. Inaugurated in 1987 to celebrate the 60th birthday of His Majesty the King of Thailand, the event has been held every year since, during the first week of December.
With Royal Patronage, the Regatta is organised by the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta Organizing Committee under the auspices of the Royal Varuna Yacht Club, in conjunction with the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand, the Royal Thai Navy and the Province of Phuket.
Four of the five Corsair Pulse 600s will be available to charter for the event and will compete in their own One Design division in the King’s Cup Regatta subject to confirmed charter numbers.
Multihull Solutions Asia general manager Andrew de Bruin said the Corsair Pulse 600s are a force to be reckoned with on the racing circuit.
“These little yachts are giant killers in the right conditions, and their very competitive handicap rating means they are can never be underestimated,” Andrew said.
“The Pulse 600 reminds me of why I started sailing years ago. They are beautifully responsive and a real pleasure to helm. We’ve had excellent results with little prior experience,” he said.
