Omani racing driver Ahmad Al Harthy swapped his Porsche Carrera Cup car for a totally different racing machine this week when he headed to the Isle of Wight for Cowes Week, after being invited by Oman Sail to join its Extreme 40s sailing team.

Al Harthy headed South after the last rounds of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB at Snetterton to become the fifth man in the Oman Air-backed Oman Sail crew. The 29 year old relished being part of the UK round of the Extreme Sailing series, the fifth of nine legs on the 2011 calendar.

Al Harthy, a sporting ambassador for Oman Air and a watersport enthusiast enjoyed every minute at sea, commenting: “I'm so grateful to the crew of the Oman Air boat for allowing me to be their 'fifth man' at Cowes, it was an amazing experience and a very proud moment for me. Cowes Week is a renowned world-class event and it's been a dream come true being part of it.

“Sailing, like motorsport, is growing in popularity all the time back home so being involved in this event has been incredibly important to promote the tourism and business opportunities which exist in Oman. It was a lot of fun supporting the Oman Sail guys before they went out to race, I wish them the best of luck for the remainder of the Extreme Sailing Series.”
