Yas Marina, operated and managed by Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, has opened bookings for the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, taking place from 2nd-4th November 2012 with berths filling up quickly.

Located at the heart of the Yas Marina Circuit, the marina offers members and day visitors alike the ultimate yachting and racing experience.

Yas Marina has a selection of excellent track view berths available and large screens located within the marina will broadcast the race live to ensure you don’t miss the action.

Cedric Le Rest, General Manager at Yas Marina said: “The facilities, services and atmosphere at Yas Marina, particularly during the F1 event, make the marina a stand out venue with a great value offering.

Our berth bookings for this year are looking very strong, with 2012 shaping up to be our biggest year yet and a huge demand for track view bookings in particular. Yas Marina has a fantastic atmosphere throughout the event and is fortunate to be located right at the heart of the race circuit, making the marina a great place to be for boat owners and general visitors alike.”
