Thousands will flock to the emirate of Fujairah to witness the best of the best in the water sports arena.
That’s the goal of Rooster Tail – the sports and entertainment company that signed a ground-breaking partnership with the Fujairah International Marine Club at the Novotel hotel in Fujairah today.
The three-year agreement will see Rooster Tail Sports and Entertainment tasked with promoting Fujairah as the go-to destination for international water sports.
This will involve bringing high-profile international events to the east coast city of the United Arab Emirates, including sports such as sailing, rowing, surfski, kite surfing and powerboating.
Also part of the deal is the development and promotion of corporate sailing events as well as the support to grow further the Youth Training Centre at the Fujairah International Marine Club (FIMC) which was launched in October 2016.
This centre, which targets students under 15, offers instruction on sailing, motorboating and a variety of subjects related to the sports, such as water safety, respect for the environment, engines and boat parts.
Present at the announcement of this agreement today were Major Ahmed Ibrahim, Managing Director of FIMC, as well as Sid Bensalah – the man behind the rapidly growing Rooster Tail Sports and Entertainment.
Ibrahim commented on the partnership;
This is an exciting day for the emirate of Fujairah.
Rooster Tail have a long history of staging successful international watersports events and FIMC believe that this partnership is a massive step forward in bringing that success to Fujairah.
