UMLUJ: World champion Saudi jet ski handlers will perform a series of displays as part of the virus-curtailed Umluj Beach Festival.
Organizers of the Red Sea coastal event have been forced to limit this year’s festival activities to marine sports only due to coronavirus disease (COVID-19) precautionary measures.
Jet ski performances by Saudi world championship winners in the sport, along with sea games on the sandy beach of Duqm Park, will take place over two days starting on Saturday.
This year is the second edition of the festival organized by Blue Light and supervised by the Saudi Water Sports and Diving Federation. As well as maritime displays, visitors can also explore picturesque Umluj beach and sample food and refreshments offered by local families.
