Masirah has won the iShares Cup Champions 2009 for Oman

in a nail biting finish

In an extraordinarily close finish in the last leg of the last race on the last day (just as they won the Gulf Cup in Football – nail biting) Oman Sail’s Masirah has won the “iShares Cup Champions 2009” in Almeria, Spain.

Whats even more extraordinary is that this was their first season – hopefully more to come.

What a shame the America’s Cup isnt in Oman’s waters.
