Jet Ski Parade from Fujairah to Abu Dhabi to Show UAE Loyalty

A jet ski parade, sponsored by His Highness, Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad Al Sharqi, the Crown Prince of Fujairah, gets underway on Tuesday 29 November 2011, commencing at Fujairah and ending up in Abu Dhabi.

First Time

The drivers, who are all from Fujairah, plan to stop off at every emirate on their way and it is reckoned to be the first time this has been done.

Symbolic Seven

Seven jet skis—one for every emirate—will seek to make the journey, along with three boats, one for medical assistance, one for mechanics and one for catering.

Three-Day Parade

Those on the jet ski parade plan to spend three days to reach Abu Dhabi on 2 December. Their intention is to spend the first night in Dibba, the second in Ras Al Khaimah and the final night in Dubai.

Loyalty Letters

Marketing and PR Manager at the Fujairah International Marine Club, Shoaib Essa, commented:

“The interesting feature is that the jet ski riders will carry a loyalty letter signed by the Fujairah Crown Prince and will pass a copy to each Crown Prince of each emirate until finally they deliver a letter to the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.”

Celebratory Commencement

The jet ski parade will start on Tuesday at 4pm at the Fujairah Corniche, where there will be a big celebration.

If you are free, get down to the beach to send off and show your support to the jet ski parade.
