Abu Dhabi Sailing Club

SOCIAL SAILING AND RACING

Abu Dhabi Sailing Club was founded over 50 years ago at The Club by Members with a passion for sailing. The Abu Dhabi Sailing Club Members are a warm and welcoming group from all over the globe with a shared love of the sea and for the sport of sailing, you will find them regularly meeting on Friday afternoons for the weekly race/regatta and on Saturdays for social sailing and other events throughout the year.

The waters around Abu Dhabi are a cruising playground with abundant wildlife, including flying fish, dolphins and cormorants. Try your hand at sailing for a great time, some civilised exercise, and a break from the daily routines on temperate waters. Abu Dhabi is the ideal location for sailing, with guaranteed sunshine all year round and a sea breeze that blows almost every afternoon and the water, which is clear, blue and warm.
