About Phuket Dragonboats in Thailand

Phuket Dragon Boats was founded by Mike Downard the CEO of Sail in Asia and Bill Handley, both keen and experienced water sportsmen.

Bill is one of Britains most experienced Dragon boaters and has been the leading light in London for almost 20 years. Bill has been master of ceremonies at the UK's biggest events and knows how to galvanise teams and to keep everyone on task and enjoying their day out.

Mike is an Outdoor Education specialist teacher with over 25 years in the Team Building and Training industry. Mike is the Principal of Sail in Asia Sea School and introduced the International Dragon Boat to Thailand.

The Phuket Dragon Boat Website was principally set up to inform Corporate clients about using Dragon Boats for Team Building in Phuket, Pattaya, Khao Lak and Bangkok. We have, photos and movies that show the excitement and fun of Dragon Boat Corporate Events. It is possible to organise events all over Thailand as we have a trailer that can transport 4 boats and equipment. We can run Team Building events of up to 400 persons with this trailer.

The Team Building in Phuket website is our main platform for Corporate Team Buildingin Pattaya, Phuket and Bangkok. Check out our MICE Thailand pageif you need a destination management company to help you with a Corporate Event in Thailand

Our International Dragon Boats were brought in from China and since this importation we have run community events, charity fundraisers and an International Regatta as well as Corporate Regattas and Team Building for overseas clients. We have also established the Phuket Dragon Boat Club which is a club which is Free to all Phuketians and which is entirely, amateur driven.

The Phuket Dragon Boat Club is new and is intended to promote the sport in Phuket at no cost or very low cost. The club has been formed by local Phuketians and is a community based group of amateurs who want to engage in and promote dragon boating. Membership is free to all!

For information regarding our popular Corporate Team Building in Dragon Boats please contact us


This activity will be run by The Phuket Dragon Boat Club. The future regattas will involve teams from all over Phuket Island and we hope this includes teams from the Temples, The hospitals, the government workers and the schools to mention just a few.

This is Phuket's biggest FREE team building activity and is a fun filled day activity on a beautiful landscaped lake. Call us if you think your group or team would like to be involved in this easily accessed sport.

Training for teams is organised by Mike Downard of Sail in Asia for FREE for community based teams. Learn to paddle or learn to become a cruising helm with Phuket Dragon Boat Club.
