(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Sponsored by the Jumeirah Group for the eighth year, the annual regatta has been a major highlight and permanent fixture in the UAE's sailing calendar.
The event brings together top young sailing talent from across the emirates, including many of the UAE's most experienced fleet racing competitors. DOSC has the biggest and most competitive racing fleets found in the Gulf and the Jumeirah Regatta included 10 categories including dingy boats and keelboats.

The three-day event kicked off with a long day race on Thursday along the coast line of Dubai. Friday and Saturday included competitive racing 'round the cans.'

Gareth Lloyd, general manager, DOSC, said: The Jumeirah Regatta was a fantastic weekend of racing and we have witnessed first class competition out on the water. There were over 140 boats that took part from all over the UAE with around 400 people on the water and this has been one of our best regattas to date. "

Piers Schreiber, Spokesperson for Jumeirah Group, said: "We were delighted to sponsor the regatta. It was extremely competitive and it was great community event which saw quality racing across all 10 categories."
