Photographer's Note

The gleaming hull of an Arabian racing dhow lies in an Al Bateen boat builders yard in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The next step is for the mast to be fitted. The final rigging will take place after the launch.

To see a fleet of these incredibly swift craft racing ahead of the wind, their white sails bright in the sun and their hulls skimming the turqoise water of the Arabian Gulf, is a sight to behold.
