If your times dont match up with Robert, there are three places, on Phuket, to check out -at Chalong bay. Chalong bay is 15 mins ride on a moped from Pattong.
Firstly, The Lighthouse, It just looks like a lighthouse and is a yachties bar-club. 100 meters up an ally and along the beach is a bar that calls itself a Yachtclub. (another hang out for sailors) . Then 300 meters further along, is The Cruising yacht club. None of these are actual clubs as we know them. More like private bars that attract yachties. But they have notice boards and cold beer
To help a little with the geography, Get to the Chalong Peer (local landmark) and head
north to the Lighthouse. From there, ask directions to the next YC. From there you will have to head
out to the main rd and travel about half a kilometer looking for the "small" yacht club sign. Its next to Aochalong Villa & Spa.
