Yacht Racing Heats Up Subic Bay for Summer
Mar 27, 2013

SUBIC BAY FREEPORT - After the successful conclusion of the Subic Bay to Boracay Race and the Boracay Cup Regatta last February 16-22, 2013, sailors are all set to battle it out again for the next biggest Asian Yachting Event in the country - the Commodore's Cup Regatta to be held in Subic Bay on April 2-6, 2013.

Chairman Garcia said, "With this new development, we add more muscle to our bid for Subic Bay Freeport to be a major player in the maritime industry, as well as a world-class tourism destination. It will be a sure-fire boost to our efforts to attract more visitors to Subic and the communities nearby."

A quality number of Grand Prix race yachts in the Racing Class and Cruiser Racing Class that are regular participants of the Asian Yachting Circuit, (aside from the avid Cruising Class racers) both local and in nearby southeast ASEAN countries will see action in this annual competition, which has been acclaimed for its exciting and adventurous races. Through the regatta's official carrier Cebu Pacific, sailors from the Asia-Pacific region can conveniently take part in these sailing events here in the Philippines since Cebu Pacific flies from Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok and Macau direct to Clark.

With each successive race throughout the last several years, the Commodore's Cup has become bigger, better and one of the most coveted in Asia. The loud whistle of the horn will jump start the race in Subic Bay with four days of windward/leeward and passage races conducted by the Saturday Afternoon Gentlemen Sailors (SAGS) together with its prime movers, The Lighthouse Marina Resort and Watercraft Ventures Corp. under the auspices of the Philippine Sailing Association and with the help of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority.

Known for being a superb natural harbour, Subic Bay normally serves up brilliant sunshine, flat blue waters and wind conditions that demand the close attention of tacticians and skippers. Whether local or foreign-based, these top-notch sailors will compete for the prestigious Asian Yachtsman of the Year and Yacht of the Year titles during these magnificent sailing events.

The Commodore's Cup Regatta 2013 is supported by Subic Bay International Terminal Corp (SBITC), Cebu Pacific, PLDT Subictel, San Miguel Corp, Tanduay, Liquid Xperience, Sperry Topsider, Aquamundo, Broadwater Marine, TIEZA, and Subic Bay Freeport Chamber of Commerce, Inc.; while its media partners include The Philippine Star, Solar Entertainment's:ETC, JackTV and 2nd Ave, C!
