Team Oman Air got their first ever GC32 Racing Tour season off to the best possible start with victory at the opening event of 2019, the GC32 Villasimius Cup in Sardinia.
Racing in sometimes tricky and difficult conditions the Oman Air crew showed their mettle in a highly competitive 10-strong fleet of high-speed foiling catamarans to claim the first round by a clear nine points in front of the pursuing pack.
The win marked a successful debut for the new-look Oman Air crew, which has seen established team members Pete Greenhalgh, Nasser Al Mashari and Stewart Dodson joined by the highly-rated New Zealand helmsman Adam Minoprio as skipper and the experienced British sailor Adam Piggott.
“We are a new team and trying hard, and we have been able to find some areas that are definite strengths,” said Greenhalgh, Oman Air’s project manager, mainsail trimmer and tactician. “We had a great team on paper and it all came good for us.
“We are really good downwind and our manoeuvres have also been good, and we have been competitive upwind as well.
“It’s also been working really well between Adam Minoprio and I, calling the tactics and getting the boat going in the right direction, so we are really pleased that that’s worked out as well as it has – we are just nicely in synch which is how it should be.”
After sharing the early lead with defending GC32 champions Norauto, led by French ace Franck Cammas, the determined Oman Air team built the foundations for their ultimate success with a hat-trick of race victories on the third of four days of racing.
Going into Sunday’s final races the crew held an eight point advantage, a lead they were able to maintain despite persistent pressure from the chasing pack, notably Ernesto Bertarelli’s Swiss team on Alinghi and multiple Olympic gold medal winner Ben Ainslie’s crew on INEOS Rebels UK, who took second and third places respectively on the overall podium. Victory was sealed with a second place in the 16th and final race of the regatta.
“It has been solid, relentless rain for the last few days and we have had a lot of wind at times, with it being quite shifty – difficult conditions but we somehow managed to get the racing in,” said Greenhalgh of the unseasonal conditions.
“We struggled in a couple of races today and slipped back a little, but we held on for a really good result and we are of course happy with that.”
Also delighted was Al Mashari, a regular with the Oman Sail organised team. He said: “It has been good to have done so well at the start of our GC32 Racing Tour campaign. The other teams are very competitive and we know they will come back strongly throughout the season.
“There is a long way to go, but we are a good team and we will be trying our hardest to get a good result at every event.”
Team Oman Air – also supported by EFG Private Bank Monaco – will be back in action at the end of June with the second event on the GC32 Racing Tour schedule in Lagos, southern Portugal, from June 26th-30th.

Team Oman Air is all set to go into high-speed action this week with the opening event of the international 2019 GC32 Racing Tour.
In what promises to be an exciting and challenging season the crew of the high-tech foiling catamaran – capable of reaching 40 knots – will start their Tour campaign at the GC32 Villasimius Cup on Wednesday 22nd May in southern Sardinia.
The team will face both old adversaries and new rivals in the enlarged 10-strong GC32 Racing Tour fleet across five events between now and November.
Familiar competition will come from the Swiss team on Alinghi, Austria’s Red Bull Racing and INEOS Rebels UK helmed by British sailing legend Sir Ben Ainslie, all transferees from the now defunct Extreme Sailing Series.
Meanwhile new challenges will come from Racing Tour regulars including the US Argo team, the Franck Cammas skippered Norauto entry, and the Chinese flagged CHINAone NINGBO crew led by former Oman Air skipper Phil Robertson.
It’s a prospect welcomed by Oman Air’s project manager, mainsail trimmer and tactician Pete Greenhalgh, who will be reunited with Oman Sail stalwart Nasser Al Mashari and Kiwi racer Stewart Dodson. The team will be further strengthened by the experienced British sailor Adam Piggott and renowned New Zealand helmsman Adam Minoprio, the youngest ever Match Racing World Champion.
“Joining the GC32 Racing Tour is a change, and it’s a different style of racing with a few more boats on the start line – which is great for the event and great for the racing,” said Greenhalgh.
“It’s sure to be really competitive with a lot more depth to the field, with Alinghi, INEOS and Norauto sure to be up there, and it is going to be interesting to be racing against Phil Robertson this season,” he added with a laugh.
“With the two Adams joining us our performance will be just fine, so we will be getting out there and aiming to continue to improve on our speed and our teamwork – and if we can do that through the season we can hopefully get the result we are looking for, a win.”
The switch to the GC32 Racing Tour for 2019 has seen the Oman Sail team benefit from the continued support of Oman Air following several successful seasons with the Extreme Sailing Series.
“We have a great team once again and we can be confident going into the Racing Tour though it has new teams and new venues,” said Al Mashari. “It is also great to again have the support of Oman’s national airline through what is sure to be an exciting and, hopefully, successful season.”
Team Oman Air – also supported by EFG Private Bank Monaco – will begin its bid for the 2019 GC32 Racing Tour title in Villasimius with a day of practice racing followed by four race days from May 22nd to 26th.

Muscat, 24th April 2019: A major step in a pioneering joint project between Duqm Refinery and Oman Sail saw the participation of 50 students in a training course to boost their employment prospects. The three-day course, held at Millennium Resort Al Mussanah, targeted Grade 11 and 12 school students, aged 17 and 18, from Al Wusta Governorate, which is the home of Duqm Refinery.

The course came after a successful debut last November, which saw 100 school kids take part in the joint initiative between the two companies and forms part of the Al Nokhedha program which is an extension of Duqm Refinery’s substantial Corporate Social Investment activities.

Commenting on the implementation of the program, Jasim bin Hassan Al Ajmi, Head of Corporate Sustainability in Duqm Refinery stated “Duqm Refinery is committed to the education and training of young people in the Al Wusta community and Oman as a whole,”.

Al Ajmi added, “With the expert assistance of the team from Oman Sail, the Al Nokhedha program added a real value to human capital by boosting confidence, empowering the youth of Oman and preparing them for entry into the workplace.”

The students taking part in the course experienced theoretical and outdoor practical challenges that aimed to develop useful workplace skills such as communication, leadership, teamwork, decision making and self-management. Workshops and practical exercises, including sailing, allowed each student to hone a variety of skills that would be useful in both their personal and professional lives.

“This programme brought real benefits to the  young people taking part and equipped them with some of the vital skills that are highly valued in the workplace,” said Khamis Al Anbouri, Head of Corporate and Personal Development (Zimam) at Oman Sail.

“Our Zimam team have a track record of success working on youth development programmes with various schools, colleges and businesses, and we look forward to taking this partnership project with Duqm Refinery forward.”

Muscat, March 24th 2019: An Oman Special Olympics sailing team is celebrating gold medal success at the Middle East’s first ever World Games event in Abu Dhabi. Mohamed Ahmed Al Wahaibi won his class in the Laser Radial event at the high-profile international games which attracted 7,500 athletes from no fewer than 190 countries.

The 24 year-old gold medal winner was part of a six-strong Omani sailing team supported by instructors from Oman Sail schools and coaches. A full-time employee at Oman International Group SAOC, Mohammed began sailing in Oman Sail Al Mouj Sailing School on October 2018.

“Mohamed is a strong guy and he has worked hard and trained hard for over a year to get the medal – we are going to continue working with him and his college and develop his abilities,” said the Oman team’s leader Ali Al Shuhaimi.

“It was the first time we have had an Oman sailing team at the Special Olympics and it has been a good experience for everyone who was involved, both the athletes and the coaches.”

Also in the Bahia fleet were Mahmood Hamood Al Hasni, 25, and Samir Sulaiman Al Harthi, 19, who raced with Al Mouj school instructors Abdullaziz Al Sabahi and Ghassan Al Zadjali.

“The Special Olympics World Games is a good start and all the team did a good job – when we get back to Oman we will develop a clear plan for the future,” Al Shuhaimi, who also worked as Assistant Technical Director Delegate during the sailing event. “I need to thank everyone who has been part of this project, and also the organisers of the games.

“For the Bahia sailors it was their first time, but it was a great experience and we can work more with them,” he added.

“We have now got the experience to build on for the next Games in Germany in 2023. In between now and then we will also work with teams from other countries who have more experience in this kind of sailing.”
