IMC Takes the Helm: Sponsorship Secured for the 37th America’s Cup in Jeddah
The International Medical Center (IMC) is the official medical sponsor for the 37th America's Cup Preliminary Regatta, hosted for the first time in the Middle East at Jeddah's Yacht Club & Marina, Saudi Arabia, from November 29 to December 2. IMC will provide comprehensive medical care, including a professional medical team, first aid stations, and ambulances, throughout the event.
IMC's CEO, Dr. Walid Fitaihi, emphasizes the organization's dedication to offering top-notch medical services to attendees of this prominent global event, aligning with their support for local sporting events and partnership with the Saudi Ministry of Sport and Sailing Federation.
This prestigious sailing competition will feature British, Italian, French, and American teams vying against the two-time champions Team New Zealand, who are aiming for a third consecutive victory.
The Saudi Ministry of Sport is leveraging the event to inspire the youth to engage in water sports, with the hope of nurturing talent for future local, regional, and international events while promoting mental and physical health benefits.
The event kicks off with local water-related activities by the Saudi Sailing Federation, followed by the opening of the Race Village, allowing visitors to observe the official practice race on the first day.
