Look out, Florida – and Courchevel – Imoca 60 and MOD 70 trimaran racer Sidney Gavignet is a big fan of a competitive winter alternative…
5 LEGS – 763 MILES – ONE DESIGN – ARRIVE-AND-DRIVE – ARABIA’S NO1 OFFSHORE RACE
It is not hard to work out why I love racing EFG Sailing Arabia – The Tour (SATT)… aside from winning three of the last four editions with our Farr 30 EFG Bank Monaco! The weather is warm, the racing is competitive and challenging and the event is rich in both culture and fun.
In February in Europe there is not much to do except ski, and this is exactly what we did last year, but in Dubai… In fact, I think our team building session at Dubai’s indoor ski resort before the start of the 2016 edition formed the building blocks of our subsequent success. The pleasure and challenge of putting together a team each year to compete successfully over 10 days of intense one-design racing are one of many reasons why I keep coming back to this race.
