ART MARINE MARINAS and Al Bandar Marina host the third edition of Wobbly Boat Race

ART Marine Marinas recently hosted the third edition of Wobbly Boat Race at Al Bandar Marina, Abu Dhabi. A total of 15 teams consisting 4 to 6 participants, registered to this event. Each team received 3 sheets of plywood, 5 long wooden batons, ropes, duct tape, silicon glue, nails and screws, and built a boat within 3 hours. Once the team members finished the construction of their boats, they moved their vessels to Al Bandar Amphitheater where the judges viewed the boats and scored the overall appearance of the boats. Finally, the boats were transferred to the water and got ready for the race through Al Bandar Marina. The boats had to carry at least one person and be propelled by human or natural power.

Building a boat was not as easy as it seemed and some of the boats sank or flipped over once the sailors launched the boats in the water; persistent team members paddled and pushed their boats all the way through the finish line. The Power Flower team was nominated for the Best Decorated Boat contest and received a Dhow cruise courtesy of Hydro Marine Sports. In the Speedy Boat category, ART MARINE Service team was announced the winner when their boat reached the finish line. They were awarded with a buffet dinner at Rotana Hotel-Yas Island. Bruno Meier, General Manager of ART Marine Marinas, said We are thrilled to see the Wobbly Boat Race can attract so many participants and the companies take the opportunity to practice their team-building skills. I would also like to thank our sponsors who helped us tremendously to host this event. We aim to organize more community events at Al Bandar Marina, and we are looking forward to welcoming more participants to the next edition of the race"
