We use sailing to contribute to the development of Oman and its people. In 2008 His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said gave his blessing for Oman Sail to be formed. Our initial objective was to create a sailing race around the world from Muscat to Muscat, to build a sailing school to teach young Omanis the sport and reinstate the maritime eminence the country once had. Having fulfilled those early objectives, the scale and ambition of Oman Sail continues to grow by the year. Our innovative training programmes for thousands of young Omanis are inspiring a new generation to discover and enjoy sailing. For many, as a recreation which combines physical exercise with mental stimulation and teamwork – and for some, as a competitive sport at the very highest levels internationally. The programme has already achieved many victories as part of our elite inshore and offshore racing teams.
