“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.
