A tradtional Arabic rowing race

Filmed along Abu Dhabi’s corniche (seafront) in January 2009, this was the annual rowing race held to commemorate the four colours in the UAE flag.

If the footage looks a little shaky in the middle, that’s because I was on a speed-boat with a handheld camera.

Due to a lack of English speakers among the organisers I decided against a voice over and let the sights and sounds speak for themselves.
