5 More Photos from the 2014 Zamami-jima Sailing Sabani Race

Catching up on the processing of photos from this race may take awhile.

This boat, with the yellow sails caught my attention, the night before the race.

 A sabani with an outrigger, I had seen before.

But, it was the first time, I had ever seen one with two sails.

They seem to move a lot faster than a single-sail sabani boat.

But, I bet, it takes twice as long to learn how to sail them.
