AL DHAFRA, 23rd April, 2017 (WAM) -- Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan bin Zayed
Al Nahyan today crowned the winners of the Dalma Dhow Race
in the 60-foot category, upon the directives of President His Highness
Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, with the follow up of His Highness
Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and
Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, under the patronage
of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in
the Al Dhafra Region.
The AED25 million race was organised by the Abu Dhabi Sailing and
Yacht Club as the largest in the history of sailing, with participants
sailing some 80 nautical miles (125 kilometres) from Dalma Island to
Al Marfa City.
Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan thanked the leadership for
its continuous support for the nation’s heritage. He stressed that the
leadership has instilled an overall passion for the heritage of the
country, believing that pride in the past is the way to build a strong
nation that can face any challenge.
The Storm boat of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al
Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, was crowned the winner after the
success of its captain, Omar Abdullah Mohammed Al Marzouqi, who led
the crew to overall victory, reaching the end of the final station in nearly nine hours.
The first-place winner received a prize of AED1.5 million, as well as
a Nissan Patrol car.
Ahmed Thani Al Rumaithi, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Sailing and Yacht Club and Chairman of the Supreme Organising
Committee of the race, stressed that the Dalma Race is
the most challenging, largest and longest sailing race in the UAE,
highlighting that participating in this race is an honour for any
competitor.
"It is certain that everyone knows the value of the island of Dalma
and its heritage to every Emirati, which is why the largest sailing
race in the history of the nation was named after it," Al Rumaithi
added.
The island of Dalma was chosen as the starting point of this race due
to its historical value to heritage lovers of the UAE, and as a trade
community for the people of the Gulf since ancient times. It is also
renowned for its pearl trade, as well as a famous island both
regionally and internationally.
