On the 1st of May 1996 His Highness Sheikh Sulan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy prime Minister, and chairman of Emirates Heritage Club issued an executive order to form a Modern Sailing Committee with the aims of promoting modern and traditional sailing within Emirate.
From this beginning, a Modern Sailing Department has developed which not only offers training in an exciting range of modern and traditional water-sports, but has also organized a number of national and regional championship events.
Following on the success of students trained by the Modern Sailing Department, at local, regional and international events, and the growth of water-sports in the UAE, the decision was taken to form an Emirates Sailing School
