Oman Sail hopes to attract strong international teams as entries opened for the Middle East region’s premier sailing racing event on Monday.
The fleet of high-speed Diam 24s will be involved in an intensive 14-day marathon along Oman’s spectacular and scenic coastline.
As in the past, the 2019 edition will offer a varied mix of in-port stadium-style races and longer off-shore coastal legs.
The fleet will begin its journey from Muscat. It will then move on to Sur and Ras Al Hadd, before travelling to Masirah Island and Duqm. The teams will then race on the final leg to Salalah.
