The Omani contingent features Musab al Hadi and Waleed al Kindi in the 49er class, coached by Zakariya al Wahabi, Abdulmajeed al Hadrami and Abdullah al Sarhi in the Windsurfing class, along with coach Sultan al Balushi, and Nibras al Owaisi will team with Elyass al Fhadli in the ILCA 4 class which is coached by Mundher al Kindi.

Team leader, Mohsin al Busaidi, head of the Youth Sailing Pathway at Oman Sail, said, “This is an important test for our sailors across three classes and a great opportunity to put into practice the techniques we have been learning in training. Qualifying for Paris 2024 is our main objective, and this tournament is the first step this year to reach that level. It will be an interesting opportunity for the team and a great chance to get into the rhythm of competitive sailing early in the year.”

Racing will be staged in the harbour and open waters surrounding the Abu Dhabi Marine Sports Club every day, from March 1 till March 6. The final day of races will also feature the medal event where the prizes will be decided, before concluding with a prize-giving and closing ceremony.

The event is organised by the UAE Sailing and Rowing Federation (UAE SARF) under the sanction of the Asian Sailing Federation (ASAF). All participants will be subject to COVID-19 testing requirements and safety protocols as implemented by the authorities of the UAE and Abu Dhabi to ensure a safe tournament for all sailors, coaches, dignitaries and media.
