Following Dubai Duty Free's return to the high seas last year, the Dubai Offshore Sailing Club (DOSC) is excited to announce it will host the second annual Dubai Duty Free Sailing League Regatta from December 1-4.
The electrifying race follows an innovative sailing league format where 12 international and 12 local teams sailing SB20 sport boats will compete over four days in a series of 10 to 15-minute races featuring eight boats at a time. Last year’s champions, Glasgow Kiss, will return to defend their title amongst fierce competition from some of the world’s most talented SB20 sailors.
The regatta is an especially exciting event for spectators as the course runs directly in front of Jumeirah Beach and will also be broadcasted live, showcasing every riveting moment in the race. DOSC will also host engaging social evenings where competitors and fans can refresh and relax. The race village will also return, featuring a live feed available online and an entertaining venue to watch the regatta.
Commenting on the return of the Dubai Duty Free Sailing League Regatta, DOSC's Commodore Simon Reeves stated, "We are excited to welcome this important race back to DOSC, and we are delighted Dubai Duty Free will return as the title sponsor. Last year's inaugural Regatta proved popular among sailors and sailing enthusiasts. It showcased Dubai’s enthusiastic sailing community as well as DOSC’s ability to host a world-class event, and we look forward to creating an even more impressive experience this year.”
Ramesh Cidambi, Chief Operating Officer of Dubai Duty Free said “We are very pleased to again sponsor the 2022 Dubai Duty Free Sailing League Regatta. It was a fantastic event last year and extremely enjoyable for both fans and competitors, and helped create many ambassadors for Dubai in the international SB20 sailing community. The field this year is even more competitive, and having the event over the UAE National Day holidays will help attract more fans to enjoy the racing and entertainment”
The race promises to deliver days filled with action and adventure and will offer the global sailing community a preview of the SB20 World Championships, which DOSC will host in 2024.
