Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Crown Prince of Fujairah, affirmed the high position that the emirate enjoys in organising and hosting the most important marine sports competitions in the world.


The picturesque waters of Fujairah bore witness to a breathtaking display of speed, precision, and rivalry.


Sheikh Mohammed noted the support and follow-up of His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Fujairah, for sports activities that advance the sports sector in the UAE and marine sports in particular towards the highest competitive levels.


The Crown Prince of Fujairah made the statements as he attended the 2023 UIM XCAT World Championship Fujairah Grand Prix which was held under his patronage at the Fujairah International Marine Club.


Sheikh Mohammed honoured winners of the race in the presence of Sheikh Saif bin Hamad Bin Saif Al Sharqi, Chairman of the Fujairah International Marine Club, and Sheikh Ahmed Bin Hamad Bin Saif Al Sharqi.


The XCAT Powerboat Racing Championship culminated in a heart-stopping finale held in Fujairah, where the fate of the World Championship title was on the line.

The competition was intense, and from the start, Team GB's crew seized the lead, trying to control the tempo before being overtaken by Fazza.


As Fazza approached victory, a mechanical failure forced their withdrawal, paving the way for the British team to not only win the race but also clinch the coveted title of World Champions. Martin Campbell and Scott Williams, the dynamic duo representing Team GB, celebrated a triumphant season, demonstrating their skill and determination.


The final standings revealed HPI of Rosario and Giuseppe Schiano securing the second-place position, with Fazza, led by Arif Al Zaffain and Nadir Bin Hendi, clinching the third spot. Swecat, the Swedish contingent, claimed the fourth-place finish, and Consulbrokers, helmed by Alfredo Amato, secured the fifth spot in the overall rankings.
