Question 2

  The Championship boats will not be available for charter. The Doha Sailing Club has 12 almost brand new Ziegelmayer & Mackay boats which can be made available on a first come first served basis at € 500/- for the whole week. In addition there are thirteen Nautivela boats in reasonably good condition which can also be provided.
