Last weekend was full of sporting events. Not only were we having the NFL playoffs, here in Abu Dhabi and Dubai we were having the Volvo Ocean Race in Abu Dhabi and the Dunlop 24 Hour Dubai car race at the Dubai Autodrome. I popped over to Abu Dhabi and caught the in-port yacht race. A number of people showed up for the race before the yachts headed off to the next leg of their race to China. This is the first time the Volvo Ocean Race has been in the UAE. I have some images of the yachts as they were maneuvering thru the course near the Abu Dhabi Marina Mall. The spectators were lined up on the breakwater and some more fortunate souls were able to get their private yacht close to the action.
