Last year, Taiwan’s stunning Penghu islands played host to the inaugural Penghu Regatta, which offered yachting enthusiasts the chance to explore new destinations and share sailing adventures amidst the beauty of Penghu’s 64 islands.
The regatta returns again this month, offering participants an introduction to the yachting lifestyle and giving them the chance to take part in yacht racing activities.
Taking place from 21 to 29 June, the regatta will comprise two weekends of racing beginning with an inshore race in Penghu Bay. Participants will also enjoy an opening ceremony, and a welcome dinner, and award ceremony on the first night.
The following day, attendees will be able to take part in a Round the Island Race in South Penghu, followed by another award ceremony to recognize the winning crews.
As they prepare for the second weekend’s races, participating yacht crews will have five days in which to explore the sights of this attractive island chain. The regatta will then conclude with the AUDI Pasage Race race on Saturday 28 June, before a final award ceremony and party at Wangan Island that evening.
Organized by the Penghu County Sailing Association and the Penghu County Sailing Committee, the regatta comes almost a year after Simpson Marine opened its third Taiwan office in the southern city of Kaohsiung to meetgrowing demand for yachting in Taiwan. The event is directed by the Taiwan Tourism Bureau, the Taiwan Ministry of Transportation & Communications, the Penghu County Government and the Penghu County Council.
Over 20 yachts have already signed up for the competition, with more expected to join before the regatta officially opens.
