Dubai Traditional 22ft Dhow Sailing Championship fourth and final heat was held off the Mina Seyahi waters of Dubai International Marine Club (DIMC) on Saturday 31st March. Sultan Saeed Hareb led a tactical race to take Shamardel to a final flourish.

With perfect winds ruling the course, it was skipper Hareb’s tactical brilliance that saw him lead from the start and clinch victory over the chasing pack of Al Iz, Ghalais, Al Liya and Mujahir in an entertaining race.

Mohammed Hareb, in-charge of sailing and member of the DIMC Sports Committee, was the chief guest and presented the trophies to the winners after the race.

The results turned the overall standings in the championships upside down with Shamardel also taking the end of season honours with 18 points. After a slow start to the season with seventh, second and eighth placed finishes in the earlier three rounds, the Saeed Mohammed Hareb-owned dhow totaled 18 points to take the champion’s title despite having the same points as Majid Ahmad Khadim Al Muhairi’s Al Sharid.

But in this week’s final round held in perfect conditions, skipper Hareb was at his best guiding the dhow to an emphatic victory in the face of some stiff opposition put up by Al Iz, Ghalais, Al Liya and Mujahir who had to settle for second, third, fourth and fifth places respectively.

'This has been yet another fruitful season for us and we will try to make things better for the dhows for the next year,' Mohammed Hareb remarked after the presentation of trophies.

Meanwhile, the fourth and final heat of the Dubai Traditional 30ft Rowing Race that was scheduled to be held last Friday had to be postponed due to unfavourable weather conditions. A fresh date will be decided later this week.

Results:
1. Shamardel
2. Al Iz
3. Ghalais
4. Al Liya
5. Mujahir

Overall standings at the end of the four-round championships :
1. Shamardel (18pts)
2. Al Sharid (18)
3. Dahes (23)
4. Zilzal (33)
5. Muzahim (34)
