Al Gaffal Long Distance Race

Carrying forward local legacies

As the Al Gaffal Long Distance Race marks its 33rd anniversary this May, it reaffirms its status as a beloved and essential component of the traditional water sports scene. Over 100 skilled boatsmen will navigate 60ft dhows from Sir Bu Na'air to Dubai in a display of maritime prowess and heritage. A cornerstone of Dubai's sporting calendar, this event pays homage to the UAE's rich maritime and pearl-diving history while highlighting the sea's significance in shaping society, culture, and economy. Visitors can immerse themselves in the festivities, including an exhibition by Mustafa Al Fardan at the Al Gaffal Village Tent near the iconic Burj Al Arab at Jumeirah Beach. With a prize purse worth millions, including luxury cars, this spectacle showcases Emirati competitors carrying on their ancestors' legacy, serving as a fitting conclusion to the Dubai International Marine Club's (DIMC) season. Don't miss the opportunity to witness this unmissable event, where tradition, skill, and heritage converge to create a truly unforgettable experience.
