Partnership Opportunities

EFG Sailing Arabia – The Tour has become a force to be reckoned with and a glittering showcase for its partners and a proud maritime region, rich in tourism and investment potential. Sailing embodies the kind of tourism we are developing in the region: eco-friendly, authentic, and full of rich experiences. Physically and intellectually stimulating, sailing also offers the opportunity to share skills and foster lasting commercial relationships within the local and global community.

In 2016 there are six prestigious venues along the coast of the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Gulf, with dynamic activation opportunities, international media coverage and action packed VIP events taking place at each one. There is no faster or more effective way to promote your brand within the region and beyond.

Oman Sail welcomes inquiries from potential sponsors and partners. We would be delighted to tailor a commercial package to meet your specific requirements. Please contact us or send an email to Bryan Winning: bryan@omansail.com
