ABRA Race Schedule Set, Qatar Race November 13-14

The American Boat Racing Association (ABRA) and the Qatar Marine Sports Federation (QMSF) have agreed on race dates for the Oryx Cup World Championship in Doha, Qatar.

QMSF President Sheikh Hassan Bin Jabor Al Thani and ABRA Chairman Sam Cole announced November 13 and 14 as the race dates for the season finale. Testing will take place on Thursday, November 12.

"Every step we make to get our boats to Doha for the Oryx Cup is truly an exciting moment for our sport," said Cole. "I think that excitement for everyone will increase as we go through our 2009 schedule in North America."

The ABRA will tentatively have six races plus one exhibition event in North America before 10 teams start packing for Qatar in November.

The 2009 season will begin with the Indiana Governor's Cup in Madison, Ind. on the Fourth of July weekend.
