“It has been a fantastic experience being a part of a race that has grown more prestigious each year and put the region on the map for a global annual event for burgeoning and experienced sailors alike”
George Catsiapis, Managing Director, EFG Bank (Monaco), EFG International
“EFG Sailing Arabia – The Tour has become the perfect successor to the Tour de France à la Voile. The concept of combining inshore races with legs is very attractive.”
Lorenz Muller, Skipper Bienne Voile
During design conferences, we applied a simple test for complex issues: will this detail or feature make the boat more fun to sail? Time and again, we found that the simplest solution was the best one.
Bruce Farr, Founder, Farr Yacht Design
