Para Sailing

Sailing is a sport that allows participants to enjoy the freedom of movement and independence in the sea. It offers something for everyone and there is no limit to finding out how far a person can go. Individuals with physical impairment of all abilities can enjoy the sport of sailing as boats can be adapted for seating, controls and rigging. Various competitions and challenge races are available regionally and internationally. The sport was first introduced to Oman in 2019.


Sailfree program

The GCC and MENA regions’ first ever para sailing programme designed to introduce people with physical impairment to the sport of sailing has launched a campaign to sign up people with an interest in sport to become part of the programme. It is a joint initiative between BP Oman, the Oman Paralympic Committee and Oman Sail, the programme aims to form a national team to represent Oman at international sailing regattas, including the 2022 Para Sailing World Championships. 

SailFree will engage men and women aged between 16 to 30 years old to be trained at sailing schools in Al Mouj Muscat and Musanaa, using the highly-adaptable and specifically designed RS Venture Connect SCS sailing dinghy adopted by World Sailing for the Paralympic double-handed class.
