Oman Sail is ready to welcome sailors from around the world to Al Mussanah marking a return of sailing events this quarter of the year. Kicking off today is the Asian Windsurfing Championships at the Barcelo Mussanah Resort, bringing together a select group of talented male and female windsurfers in the Techno293, Techno293 Plus as well as the brand-new foiling Formula Windsurfing class, which is making its debut at the championships this week.

The predominantly-Omani fleet will showcase the depth of local talent across all classes and demonstrate the potential of Oman as a world-class sporting venue after an enforced hiatus. Conditions are expected to be perfect. Winds between 7 and 15 knots, a combination of powerful sea breezes and pleasant waves should see five full days of exhilarating action on the water.

The event is supported by a line-up of supporters including Oman Air and the Barcelo Mussanah Resort as official partners, Be'ah as environmental supporter and Salsabeel Water from the National Mineral Water Company.

The 2021 Asian Windsurfing Championships is the first in a busy period for Oman Sail and Al-Mussanah Sports City. Sailors from around the world are set to touch down in the Sultanate to compete in the Mussanah Race Week from 30 October-5 November, the 2021 49er, 49er FX & Nacra 17 Asian Championships from 5-9 November and the 2021 49er, 49er FX & Nacra 17 World Championships from 16-21 November.
