The six fans who will test their sailing skills are now preparing for Sunday's “sail down” to win a trip to Abu Dhabi to see the Volvo Ocean Race, courtesy of ADTA and Etihad!

They are: Ian Nuttall, Paul McCarney, Marjorie Tawse, Catherine Dyster, Amanda Aspinall and Jayne Morton.

All  six answered our three questions correctly and their names were drawn from the hundreds of correct entries.

In City Square on Sunday before the key match against Arsenal they will demonstrate the sailing skills guiding some remote controlled land yachts around our course.

They will first have to record the quickest time in the heats and then the winners from each heat will go to the final to decide who wins the fantastic trip. Good luck and see you Sunday in City Square!

The answers were:

1. Which famous rock band will open New Year's Eve celebrations ahead of the Volvo Ocean Race fleet's arrival in Abu Dhabi?

Coldplay

2. What is the name of the Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing yacht in the Volvo Ocean Race?

Azzam Soars

3. What is the traditional name for the Emirati sailing boat?

Dhow
