The 2023 season kicks off where it concluded in 2022, in Muscat, Oman. Here the 44Cup Oman will be held out of the Al Mouj Marina on the outskirts of the Omani capital Muscat over 1-5 March. The event is hosted by Oman Sail, the well-known organisation set up in 2008 with the blessing of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said to rekindle Oman’s maritime heritage, promote the Sultanate of Oman around the world through sailing and provide long-term learning opportunities for Omani youth. Hence Oman Sail will also field a team in the event.
The 44Cup is no stranger to the Arabian Peninsula, having concluded its 2008 and 2009 seasons in Dubai; nor to Oman, which it visited previously in 2013 and 2014.
Whether you're in Oman or following from the comfort of your own home, here is your guide to how to watch the racing.
