Al Gaffal Dhow Race in Dubai

Al Gaffal Dhow Race in Dubai - Coming Soon in UAE

The Al Gaffal Dhow Race will take place on 13 or 20 May on open spaces of Burj al Arab, depending on the wind and weather conditions.

The race commemorates the early history of Dubai’s evolution into a trading port through the pearl divers. It is one of the most beautiful sailing races, as up to 100 traditional dhows with white sails glide through the water. Each dhow is 18.3 metres long, and from afar, the sight is magnificent. The race is unique in that the crew must be completely composed of Emirati nationals. You can get closer to the action by following the race in a water ferry, or watch as the dhows sail in to the finish at the iconic Burj Al Arab hotel.

 

Organized by: Dubai International Marine club
Venue: Burj al Arab, Dubai
