Established in 2008, Oman Sail is a national initiative that uses the power of sport to contribute to the development of the Omani people. The equal opportunity project runs sailing programmes for thousands of young Omani men and women, inspiring a new generation to discover sailing. It encompasses a national sailing squad and high achieving inshore and offshore racing teams, all of which benefit from world-class coaching and whose ultimate objective is to win an Olympic medal for Oman. The goal is to rekindle Oman’s maritime heritage while raising the country’s regional and international profile as a high-end tourist and foreign investment destination, through competitive sailing at home and abroad. Oman Sail seeks to instill confidence and to teach valuable, transferable life skills to a generation of Omanis. Based on its global expertise on event management, Oman Sail has been commissioned to deliver a number of sporting events to promote the Sultanate of Oman including Al Mouj Muscat Marathon, Oman By UTMB, Haute Route Oman and Muscat Century Ride.
