The Sailing Club of Ras Al Khaimah has been officially launched by H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saqr Al Qasimi, during the grand opening at Al Hamra Marina & Yacht Club.

Located within Al Hamra Village, the club is set to further boost the emirate's credentials as a leading destination for watersports and enable it to host internationally acclaimed events, such as The Asian Youth Sailing Cup Final, the first high profile competition recently held at the club.

"[…] We now have the opportunity to play a vital role in helping to nurture and train rising talent in the region while providing a modern base for local residents to pursue their passion for watersports," said, Benoy Kurien, general manager, Al Hamra Real Estate Development.
