Sailing in Subic and Boracay has evolved with growing popularity and interest over the last several years and has been acclaimed as one of the best regattas in Asia, namely the Subic Bay to Boracay Race and the Boracay Cup Regatta. These regattas attract Grand Prix Yachts and top notch local and foreign sailors vying for the prestigious “Asian Yachtsman of the Year” and “Yacht of the Year” titles as part of the Asian Yachting Circuit.
The gruelling 210 nautical mile ISAF Cat 3 Offshore race from Subic Bay to Boracay took between 17-40 hours, depending on the size of the boat and the sea and wind conditions in the route. This was followed by four glorious days of windward-leeward races and offshore races around the beautiful and exotic island of Boracay known as the Boracay Cup Regatta.
The Subic Bay to Boracay Race and Boracay Cup Regatta are organized by SAGS and Boracay Cup Organizing Committee in conjunction with The Lighthouse Marina Resort, The Municipal Government of Malay, The Philippine Coast Guard, The Provincial Government of Aklan, The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority and Watercraft Ventures Corp under the auspices of the Philippine Sailing Association. The regatta is supported by Subic Bay International Terminal Corporation (SBITC), Standard Insurance Company Inc., Cebu Pacific, San Miguel Corporation, Tanduay, Recreational Outdoor eXchange (R.O.X.) and the Subic Bay Freeport Chamber of Commerce with Manila Bulletin, Business World, Mabuhay Magazine, Asia-Pacific Boating, Smile Magazine, Fragrant Harbour, Expat Newspaper, Expat Magazine, Subic.com, Subictimes.com and Subicupdater.com as media partners.
