|Paddling in Abu Dhabi ..... where?|
Ninety miles from Dubai, is the capital city of the UAE. Its name is Abu Dhabi, and a $3 billion hotel is just the beginning of the story. http://money.cnn.com/magazines/fortune
The club has a social core & a few ‘speed merchants’ who compete in the DSKC events in Dubai and a record 7 members took on the 2008 Shamaal. The warriors have also held their own races in the city, with very encouraging feedback from the Dubai boys who visit, for good water & excellent organization.
vest & most importantly a beer mug, by the members. Every paddler received a poster.
25 km wind blew in the afternoon & we had huge swell – the most perfect conditions for a class from the downwind master. The conditions were a little extreme & cold for us desert people, but the guys loved it.
