The ninth edition of the Oman Sail organised youth regatta will once more provide a mix of competitive but friendly racing and planet-class coaching primarily based at the Millennium Resort Mussanah, with 250 competitors anticipated.
Mussanah Race Week will be held from February 19-26, with classes for Optimist, Laser four.7, Laser Radial, RSX and Techno 293 windsurfers.
Last year, young Omani sailors distinguished themselves in competitors with sailors from several nations, such as Germany, Monaco, India, Pakistan, Thailand, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Hungary and Croatia, taking wins or leading-3 finishes in 4 classes.
Salma al Hashmi, Oman Sail’s chief advertising officer, stated, “Mussanah Race Week has developed and improved every year since it was first held in 2011. Mussanah Sport City has proved to be a popular hub and fantastic host with superb infrastructure and facilities.”
Mussanah Sports City has currently hosted a lot of international events, such as the Laser World Championships, the Women’s Laser World Championship and the RS:X World Windsurfing Championships, and Oman Sail will host the Optimist Asian and Oceanian Championship there in October 2019 right after winning the bid final year. Mussanah Race Week 2019 will be an perfect test occasion.”
