(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) An Oman Sail team, comprising six sailors from the national youth squad, will make its debut in the international Optimist racing class when it competes in the 2014 Al Bareh International Regatta in Bahrain from June 19-23, according to a release from Oman Sail on Tuesday.
The team completed a week-long training camp at Oman Sail's sailing school in Sur under the guidance of Sultan al Zadjali, a race club coach at Musannah Sailing School. The regatta will be an international debut for Zadjali as a coach.
''These sailors are young and talented, it is an honour to be their coach at such an important regatta,'' he said.
Zadjali added, ''We competed at the Al Bareh Regatta last year, winning a gold medal. This will be the first event abroad for these sailors. It is an opportunity for them to gain experience.''<
