ISAF is very happy to announce that the Omani ISAF Member National Authority, the Ministry of Sports Affairs (OMA) has officially applied for the accreditation of its National Sail Training Programme.
Saif Al Shibli, Vice Chairman, Oman Watersports Committee explains the reasons behind the decision to apply for accreditation of their National Sail Training Programme, "Since October 2009, Oman Sail, acting as our national sailing facility and training provider, has taught over 6,000 people to sail and created a first class sail training scheme. We are delighted that the training scheme will be inspected and hopefully accredited by ISAF. This will allow the programme to continue to go from strength to strength"

Dan Jaspers, Training and Development Manager for ISAF expressed his thanks to the Oman Ministry of Sports Affairs by saying, "This application from our member in Oman marks a huge milestone in the development of their National Sailing Programme. The ISAF Recognized Training accreditation status has now been applied for by a wide variety of MNAs, differing not only in size, geographical location and population but also separated by a huge cultural diversity. I am very happy to be working with our Omani MNA to progress their application and very much look forward to the role that the Watersports Committee in Oman will be able to support ISAF in al areas of Development."
