Dubai — The next round of the UIM XCAT Powerboat World Series takes place at Cascais, 30km west of Lisbon. Cascais is making its debut in the series, one of the more exciting watersports events on the calendar.

Newcomers Team Abu Dhabi (Rashed Al Tayer and Faleh Al Mansoori) are the current leaders of the UIM XCAT World Series after their first-round victory in Fujairah and their second-place finish in round two in Dubai in February.

Chasing them for that top spot are teams from the Italy, Sweden, Australia and the UAE.

With 35 points on offer for victory in Cascais, there’ll be plenty on the line as the 13 teams line up in the Atlantic Ocean for the first time. XCAT racing sees teams of two pilots (driver and throttleman) in two-engined, carbon fibre boats contesting an all-out battle of speed.
