- PRESS RELEASE
Al Hamra Marina recently signed a partnership with the Malingri di Bagnolo family to establish a world class sailing academy within Ras Al Khaimah.
In 2005 Enrico Malingri di Bagnolo, also known as "the manager" of the family, found an off-shore sailing school that takes sailors to broaden their experience in off-shore sailing courses between Italy and Greece. In 2006 he found Malingri Marine Sas - a company which takes over the family yard in Fano and transformed it into a refitting yard specialized in vintage boat of value. Since 2011, Enrico has been the representative for Italy's dynamic brokerage company based in Holland. He has also been dealing with Neil Pryde Sails, Profurl reefing system, Scandinavian cruisers 20 sailboats and Finn Yachts Finland.
Enrico chose this association with Al Hamra Marina, an extension of Al Hamra Village, Ras Al Khaimah's master planned lifestyle development, due to its wind and sea characteristics offering favourable sailing conditions and the three surrounding luxury hotels providing the most appropriate combination for nautical tourism.
Claudio Schettino, Marina Manager, Al Hamra Marina said, "We are extremely excited about this new venture and are pleased about the partnership with the Malingri family. Sailing is an important part of Ras Al Khaimah's tradition and we want to bring a world class facility to residents and tourists alike. The Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority recently stated that the region saw over 5 million visitors this year and we expect to see more in the near future, with leisure attractions growing and Ras Al Khaimah is now very accessible with convenient flights. We are also getting ready to cater to sailing enthusiasts and develop local talent."
Set on the mouth of the lagoon, the Al Hamra Marina is designed and installed by Europe's leading pontoon supplier Poralu Marine and is the last significant fuelling stop for vessels and guests in the Arabian Gulf.
