The Sharjah 17, piloted by Rusty Witt, clocked the best time at 37.756 seconds. Close behind, the Abu Dhabi 5 boat, led by Thani Al Qamzi, secured second place with a time of 37.806 seconds, just a fraction of a second slower.

The main and final race of the round will take place tomorrow (on Sunday), featuring 18 boats, with UAE boats poised for a strong start based on these qualifying results. The competition began with all Emirati boats advancing through the initial qualifiers, with three ultimately reaching the final qualifying round and securing top positions.

Emirati champion Thani Al Qamzi made a strong return in the best time races, securing second place and setting the stage for tomorrow's main event.
