Sunday VOWs – Zanzibar Dhows on National Geographic

Sunday VOWs (Videos of the Week) presents a great short piece about the Zanzibar Island’s dhows including a 150′ version which according to the video will the largest ever built. At the 1:30 mark check out the races; wonder when Zanzibar will field an Americas Cup challenger? Maybe race in dhows and see what those guys with all the technology and designer uniforms are made of?
