After seven years of growing recognition EFG Sailing Arabia – The Tour just took a huge step up. Organiser Oman Sail has announced an all-new look for the region’s leading racing event, with a switch to the high-performance Diam 24 multihull, and a new course that will explore the length of Oman’s striking coastline.
Add in Oman Sail’s newly extended offers of turnkey entry packages – ashore and afloat – and it’s an event that’s clearly going up a gear. Racing starts on 3 February and concludes on the 17th.
A Gulf fixture since 2011, EFG Sailing Arabia – The Tour needs little introduction, offering top pro-am racing with a mix of in-port and coastal courses. The reboot will offer more of the same magic winter mix with the addition of challenging coastal raids and eight new venues.
