Video: The Dhow experience

What do you get when the holders of the America's Cup crew a traditional Dhow on the Arabian Gulf waters? Just watch this very interesting video. I have to issue a strong parental warning though, this video contains footage of centuries-old traditional monohull sailing and thus might not be suitable for the Facebook generation.

Looks like a lot of fun and the boats are faster than I thought.


Try the traditional racing in the Canary islands for something similar.
