The rally will go to The Racha resort in time for the full moon in November

To mark the beginning of Phuket’s boating season, Royal Phuket Marina is organising the Full Moon Boat Rally on November 20 and 21.

The Racha resort, on Racha Yai island

The rally will travel to the The Racha resort, on the island of Racha Yai, for an overnight stay. The expansive white-sand crescent bay with azure water creates the postcard-perfect backdrop for The Racha, one of Thailand’s leading five-star eco-chic luxury resorts.

Ko Racha Yai island is famous for its white sand beaches. About ten nautical miles south of the southernmost tip of Phuket Island, it is a convenient getaway for owners who have their yachts based in Phuket.

On Saturday night, yacht owners and guests will enjoy a beach BBQ buffet dinner under the full moon. The following Sunday morning will include breakfast while enjoying the beaches and waters of Racha Yai. Guests can spend the afternoon cruising and relaxing at Banana beach on Coral island with a host of water sports activities to choose from. The rally will continue island-hopping to Rang Yai, a small island just off the east coast of Phuket, for sundowner drinks before cruising back to Royal Phuket Marina.
