EFG is the main sponsor of EFG Sailing Arabia – The Tour, the Gulf region’s only long distance offshore sailing event. We also participate directly in the race with our team EFG Bank (Monaco), named to reflect our EFG Sailing Academy partnership with the Monaco Yacht club. In 2014, EFG Bank (Monaco), skippered by Sidney Gavignet, was crowned champion of the 2014 Tour.
EFG Sailing Arabia – The Tour was launched in 2011 with the aim of promoting the Middle East as an international sailing race destination. Thanks to perfect winter climate conditions in the Middle East, it has quickly become a fixture on the international circuit. It features intense racing along the Gulf coast, from Bahrain to Qatar, through Abu Dhabi, Ras Al Khaimah, Dibba, Mussanah and Muscat.
