Dubai is to have a new watersports centre
A new watersports centre will be opened at Dubai's Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa in March.
The upmarket watersports company, WaterCooled, will be running classes covering wind surfing, water skiing, dinghy sailing and kayaking.
All the staff are trained to Royal Yachting Association standards and will offer individual lessons as well as group and school instruction classes.
For the resort, this will add another activity to the myriad to choose from, although holidaymakers must ensure they have
sports travel insurance to cover their taste for adventure.
Watercooled managing director Tim Adams said: ""We hope to attract guests at the hotel and visitors who live locally who have never tried watersports to come and enjoy the Watercooled experience. Or for the experienced, we want our club to be a place where they can come and enjoy themselves, try out the great kit, meet like-minded sailors for a bit of a chat and also take part in some weekly dinghy racing".
