The Al Masaood Group stepped on board as another sponsor of the Dalma Sailing Festival conducted by the Abu Dhabi Sailing and Yacht Club and held from October 25 to 29.

HE Ahmed Thani Morshid Al Rumaithi, Chairman of the sailing and yacht club, thanked Al Masaood Group for their support by way of a sponsorship for a traditional sport.

“The Dalma Sailing Festival is one of the most exciting traditional maritime events and the highlight of the four-day event are the 60-foot dhow races for a prize fund of Dh25million,” he said.

Tariq Al Masaood, Chairman of Al Masaood Group, said they were honoured to step on board.

“Al Masaood Motors is always committed to contribute to national sports both modern and traditional,” he said.

“What inspired us is the unprecedented success we have had when the race was first staged last year first. The response last year was overwhelming and we believe this year it’s going to be even better.”
