Global private banking group EFG International has renewed its deal with Oman Sail and will continue as the sponsor of Sailing Arabia - The Tour in 2014.
The 15-day offshore event, which is scheduled to begin on 9th February next year, covers 760 nautical miles, taking in stops in Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Oman.
It will continue to be known as 'EFG Sailing Arabia - The Tour', although no financial details of EFG's investment were revealed.
“EFG sponsors a number of high profile sporting events worldwide with sailing one of our focal points; and this event is unique among them," said Keith Gapp, head of strategy and marketing at EFG International.
"We fully endorse Oman Sail’s commitment to youth mentoring, training and the significant strides being made to reignite the rich maritime heritage of the Gulf region.”
