The Al Gaffal Long Distance Race is a big deal - it's been happening for 31 years and is a must-see event for fans of traditional water sports. You'll get to watch over 100 skilled sailors as they race on beautiful 60ft dhows from an island off the coast of Abu Dhabi to Dubai.

In addition to the race, there will be lots of fun beach activities at the Al Gaffal Village Tent from June 3-5. This event is a nod to the UAE's rich maritime and pearl-diving history, with only local competitors taking part. It's a truly impressive sight and a fantastic way to end the Dubai International Marine Club's (DIMC) season for 2021-2022. Don't miss it!
