The growing interest in women match racing has reached the Arabian Peninsula and the sultanate of Oman, where 22 year old Rajaa Al Owaisi and her mixed British-Omani crew has taken on the challenge to participate on the WIM Series. Al Owaisi is a full time sailor who has gained experience from racing in Farr 30, J/80, J/24 and Laser. She helmed a boat in the Sailing Arabia The Tour, and has recently done a couple of match racing events in Bahrain, as well as the Spi Ouest in France. She loves the competition.
