His Excellency Sheikh Rashad bin Ahmed Al Hinai, Undersecretary of the Ministry of Sports Affairs, chairman of the Organizing Committee, says venue partner Millennium Resort Mussanah, together with a specially appointed event committee, have ensured that all preparations are ahead of schedule for the country’s first ever hosting of a world sailing championship.

'Hosting the Laser World Championships forms part of our commitment to create a lasting sailing legacy in Oman. It presents an opportunity for us to inspire the youth of Oman and develop our sailing talent.

'We are especially proud that our management team for the Championships will comprise about 30 Omanis led by International Laser Class Principal Race Officer Jeff Martin and our own Omani race officers Abdul Aziz Al Shidi and Said Al Areimi.

'In addition the high profile race jury will feature Omani sailing icons Saleh Al Jabri, skipper of the Jewel of Muscat and Mohsin Al Busaidi, the first Arab to sail non-stop around the world, alongside some the world’s best judges with experience in the Laser class.

Issa bin Sultan Al Ismaili, championship director and head of the events committee said: 'This Championships also offers us the chance to showcase our dedicated world class sailing facility at Mussanah Sports City. Good winds, warm water and ideal sailing conditions perfectly complement this venue purpose built to Olympic standards and many top national sailing teams already use it as a base for winter training.'
