Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi, February 14, 2015More thrills and spills were had during Round 3 of the N1SCO UAE race series, which featured solely 100m sprints. All categories were closely contended, with some racers still learning the hard way—especially when 6 racers arrive at the buoy turn at the same time (leaders have been known to lose out here, with back runners taking full advantage of the dramas in front)!

With the best 3 scores out of 5 taken (for 100m sprint leagues), standings are not always apparent until after round 5 and rankings are still wide open for takers of the top spots.

Round 4 will be 100m sprints and a long distance race at Yas Marina on Friday February 27th. And N1SCO Abu Dhabi University Inter University League Round 1 will also be hosted before the main event.
