Abu Dhabi to honour Volvo Ocean Race heroes

07/12/2011
Abu Dhabi will honour, with a specially crafted award - the sailors and teams who demonstrate outstanding acts of bravery and valour throughout the Volvo Ocean Race – the nine month, round-the- world yacht race, known as the ‘Everest of Sailing.'
The ‘Abu Dhabi Seamanship Award’, which will pay tribute to the seamanship and courage synonymous with the emirate’s deep rooted maritime heritage, will go to a deserving individual or team after each race leg – starting in Cape Town, South Africa.
 
Inscribed with the words, ‘Recognising courage, bravery and fortitude; Abu Dhabi at one with the sea and sailors,’ the award is designed to represent the emirate’s heroic mariners of yesteryear, who often risked life and limb at sea for months to bring home rich pearling harvests, fish catches or trade from India and Africa.
