Hear what past participants say about the Abu Dhabi Maritime Awards.

Captain Mike Fetton
Dear Abu Dhabi, Maritime Awards. I am writing to extend my heartfelt gratitude for the honor of being invited to serve as a judge for the inaugural Abu Dhabi Maritime Awards Marina Edition.  It was an absolute pleasure and privilege to participate in such a prestigious event that celebrates excellence in marinas.
Please allow me to congratulate and thank you for organizing the Abu Dhabi boat show, the Abu Dhabi Maritime Award – Marina edition, and for hosting us.   It is with immense pride and gratitude that I stood before you, on behalf of Ayla, to accept the Abu Dhabi Maritime Awards for the Best in Environment and Best in Safety.
