I am sailing…!

We had the opportunity to do a short trip on a Dhau – a sailing boat that probably dates back to the 4th century AD and is widely spread along the Indian ocean. It also was common in the mediterranean sea, but later got replaced by larger types. Although dhaus don’t have a fin, they are deep enough to allow beating – in fact, a nice design and all handmade!

 

These dhaus are tied after a morning fishing.
