Phuket hosted its first king’s cup Yacht racing Regatta in 1987 to celebrate the 60th birthday on December the 5th of His majesty the King of Thailand. As a yacht enthusiast himself, His Majesty King Bhumibol is patron of the King’s Cup, making it a regal event in every sense of the world. Since then the event has been held in December every year.
As always, Suthirak has encapsulated the beauty of the Andaman Sea, sky, sun and Phuket environment as no other artist can. Uniquely, he manages to combine his personal enthusiasm and knowledge of yacht racing with his recognized and distinctive skills as an artist and the end result is a fine series of paintings that any lover of Phuket and the fine artwork of Suthirak will delight in owning.
