Racing against the finest sailors in the DIAM class, Sailing Arabia - The Tour provides you with an opportunity to immerse in another culture, whilst embracing world-renowned Omani hospitality.
Bordered by the Arabian Gulf, Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea, the Sultanate of Oman has a total area of approximately 309,500 km2, making it the third largest country in the Arabian Peninsula.
With its magnificent desert, freshwater wadis, secret oases and breathtaking mountain ranges, Oman is full of opportunities for adventure. Alongside the country’s natural wealth is its rich culture, which blends historical features with modern infrastructure. In Sur, sailors will visit the Dhow Factory, where artisans employ centuries-old techniques to build traditional Arabian ships.
Organised by Oman Sail, an internationally accomplished sailing and sports event management organisation, Sailing Arabia – The Tour connects sailors with Oman’s long-standing nautical traditions as they explore dramatic coastlines in the Omani peninsular.
Since 2008, Oman Sail has run sailing programmes for thousands of young Omani women and men. Pledging to teach 70,000 Omani children to sail by 2020, we are inspiring a generation to discover and enjoy this fantastic sport.
Oman Sail also coaches high-achieving racing teams, role models whose ultimate objective are the Olympics. Our star sailors have already achieved many victories and the National Youth Squad regularly excels in regional and international competitions.
We are ambassadors for Oman, highlighting a cosmopolitan and hospitable country and a prime destination for sports, tourism, business and commercial investment.
