Yesterday arvo, ten of us take out the totally local, absolutely non-touristy dhow, a lateen rig (means "Latin"; does that help?), used in these parts for centuries. I must get Stevo here with some North sails, as these scraps of cloth have a touch of the "mother hubbards" about them.... big tear in the mainsail (the one and only), I guess trying out the parasail concept....
|Gordon does bow on the dhow|
|Deb and Val at Mid-mast|
|The Masters of the Mustang, Peter and Gordon get to grips with the performance of a dhow.|
Note the colour of Peter's Crocs. Carmen suggests they're not "cool". Whaaat??!
|Hard working crew on the dhow...|
|And so....off to |
