The organizing committee of the Al Maktoum Cup Traditional Rowing Boats decided to postpone the event from Friday to Saturday due to bad weather and sea conditions.
The race was scheduled to take place on the beaches of Jumeirah yesterday afternoon, as the state of the sea changed when the twenty participating boats arrived at the starting line they where not able to line up which pushed the organizing committee to raise the red flag and returned the participants to the port.
