EDEN RACING is an amateur sailing team founded in 2012 by yachtsman and business owner Philippe Saad, to race his Pacific 50 sailing yacht, 'Swordfish', in the Middle East.
The yacht has a strong heritage, having won amongst others, the King’s Cup regatta in Thailand, the Maktoum Trophy and the Dubai-Muscat Race. She combines style with performance, and has proven to be an amazingly successful yacht for offshore racing winning multiple line honours and recently the silver cup in the 2016/2017 Dubai Offshore Series.
“The multinational team combine their racing experience from around the globe, and this unique formula which is rarely seen outside the world of professional yacht racing, allows us to build on expertise gained in many different racing arenas. We value this tremendously in establishing our core team and reserve crew.” Philippe Saad
Eden Racing is a reflection of our passion for sailing within the Eden Group, and it is something that you can get involved in either by volunteering as crew, or through corporate sponsorship.
