Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club is a world-renowned venue for powerboat racing and the driving force behind the highly successful Team Abu Dhabi.

It offers a superb course for spectacular marine sport action between its base on the Breakwater and the Corniche in the UAE capital. Since 1993 the club has provided a strong organisational base for a wide range of marine sports events and activities which have added to Abu Dhabi’s status as a world-class sporting destination

Its support for powerboat racing and jet ski events is reinforced by its position as a founding member of the UAE Marine Sports Federation and as the national authority representing the UIM, the international governing body of power boating.

The club is one of the Middle East’s leading venues for marine sports events at local, national, regional and international level. Annually hosting rounds of the UIM F1 H20 World World Championship, the UIM Class 1 World Powerboat World Championship and the XCAT World Series, it is also home to the UAE Jet Ski and UAE Wooden Powerboat championships.

Fully committed to the development of marine sports, the club supports new events by providing facilities and organisational expertise.

Across its full range of marine sports activities the club places a major emphasis on attracting and nurturing young local talent for the chance to compete on the international stage.

Beyond the marine sports arena the club hosts and supports a variety of alternative events, over the years hosting the Red Bull Air Race, air shows, moto-cross races and car rallies as well as fishing competitions.
