WIld Arabia - Dubai

Never been to Dubai.  Never wanted to.

But the offer of filming one hundred traditional dhows racing in front of that crazy skyline had to be done.
it was a short shoot and I headed out with Rob.
Dubai was everything I had feared and more.  won't explain here, go and see for yourself!
Sadly a lot that had been promised wasn't delivered, so a lot of gnashing of teeth and running around ensued.

Somehow, thanks to Rob's hard work I found myself aboard this beautiful yacht ( supposedly the favourite). Although i started to smell a rat when the crew were eating lunch when the whistle went.
The race was great fun, a vast billowing sail, stunning hardwood decks and the crew all in white djellabas. screaming along in front of the barj al arab and burj khalifa

Sadly we came about 90th....

All good fun though.
