Vilamoura Sailing stage centre is increasingly sought after by the main sailing teams from all
over the World.

The 4th Portugal Grand Prix (Round 2), which was sailed between 20 and 23 February, once again
had the Vilamoura Marina as its setting.

The final day of the competition confirmed Polish Crew Dominik Buksak and Szymon Wierzbicki as
the winner in the 49er class, followed by Italians Uberto Crivelli Visconti and Giulio Calabrò, in
a dramatic last day, when after racing a protest between the Polish and the Italians could have
changed the outcome of the results.

With the wind blowing from Est, between 8 and 16 knots, the winners were confirmed in the last
races of the Portugal Grand Prix (Round 2).

In Nacra 17, The French Tim Mourniac and Lou Berthomieu finished victorious, with denmark’s
Natacha Saouma-Pedersen and Mathias Borreskov second.

Johanne Schmidt and Andrea Schimidt won the Portugal Grand Prix in the 49er Fx class, having
achieved the best performance in the set of 4 days of competition, and also won the Portugal
Grand Prix Ranking and took home a “fat” prize money of 3 500€.

With the racecourses set up very close to the shore, who in recent days enjoyed the Algarve
sun, had the privilege of enjoying a unique spectacle, with hundreds of sails in the water.
Vilamoura Sailing takes advantage of the presence of hundreds of Olympic class sailors, who
choose Vilamoura for their preparation, to hold the Portugal Grand Prix race, a world ranking
for the 49er, 49er Fx and Nacra 17 classes.

The mild climate, great sea and wind conditions for sailing, made Vilamoura the choice of 70
countries, to make their winter preparation.

Vilamoura Sailing Center Center just about reached its maximum capacity with the presence of about 400 sailors, the most important teams in the world.

For Isolated Correia, director of Vilamoura Marina, the Vilamoura Sailing project is “a source of
pride for the Vilamoura Marina. In the last five years it has brought Vilamoura more than
15,000 athletes from 83 countries. With the activity to focus over the winter, this project
effectively combats seasonality.”

Oman at a Glance

Perched on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula, the Sultanate of Oman’s stark beauty and vastly contrasting landscapes have enchanted growing numbers of tourists each year.  With its magnificent desert, secret oases and  breathtaking mountain ranges, Oman is an alluring destination. A tropical underwater paradise lies beneath the turquoise sea, caressing the white sandy beaches that adorn the country’s stunning 3,165 km coastline.  

Alongside this natural wealth is Oman’s rich culture, which blends with modern infrastructure and historical features that span over 7,000 years. Grand forts, exquisite palaces and mystical souqs are sights to behold in the capital, Muscat. A visit to Oman makes you feel right at home from the time you arrive, until the moment you leave. The Sultanate is full of opportunities for adventure, including fascinating tours with an Arabian flavour.  

Oman’s coastline is a paradise for explorers. Its abundance of wildlife includes whales, dolphins, turtles, seahorses, and flamingos. Underwater, its incredible marine life is found close to the water’s surface.  

 

 

 

 

The mountains cover approximately 15% of the country’s land mass. Oman’s main mountain range is the 10,000 foot Al Hajar, which runs from Musandam in the North to the extreme limit of the Arabian Peninsula, Ras Al Had.  

 

 

 

 

Sands and deserts occupy the remaining area; these include two large sand deserts – The Wahiba Sands known as Rimalat Al Wahiba and part of the Empty Quarter (Rub Al Khali). Here you can learn about Bedouin culture, camp under a dome of stars and experience the beauty of dawn in the desert.

 

 

 

Oman is known for its tropical climate whilst still subject to seasonal changes. From October through April, the Sultanate offers a lovely climate, with an average temperature of 23 degrees C. Combined with welcoming hospitality, warm seas and stunning landscapes, you can see why tourism in Oman is a growing industry.
