The final and fifth day's race of the 20th Kings Cup on Saturday 9 December started in easing conditions, but along the way there were difficult windless holes. Gradually the fleet ghosted round the marker buoy, with boats heading offshore looking for the sea breeze.

The award presentation ceremony took place on Saturday evening. The grand event was presided over by HM the King's personal representative, Mom Luang Usani Pramoj. Among the many classes, the Royal Thai Navy 1 skippered by Lt. Peera Sagultem won the IRC 2 class for the 5th time again while Master Blaster with a Russian crew came second and Minx from Thailand came third. The big boats in the main Racing 1 division were “neck and neck” on points battling for the major King's Cup trophy. Dhevatara Drumstick, the second smallest boat in the racing fleet was one of the few to find some speed. The happy team on Drumstick achieved their goal and were presented with the King's Cup for the second year in a row. Hi Fi was second and Island Fling finished third.

At the closing party of the very successful Phuket Kings Cup, Raimon Land CEO Mr. Nigel Cornick announced that the company was extending its sponsorship until 2012.

'As the main sponsor of the Regatta, we are proud to be once again involved in this year’s event, which will be certainly very special because of the 60th anniversary of His Majesty’s accession to the throne coinciding with the 20th edition of the race created under his Patronage. We are pleased to announce that we have now extended that sponsorship forward until 2012' said Mr. Cornick.
